The Classic Motor Boat Association is the largest organisation in the UK catering for the preservation and enjoyment of classic powerboats and engines from British and Overseas manufacturers. It was founded in 1998. The CMBA is run by enthusiasts, with a volunteer committee and is dedicated to raising awareness of classic motor boats and the enjoyment of classic boats.Most of the CMBA members’ boats are in the 13ft to 19ft range; dating from the late 1920s, through to the 1970s and are either inboard, or outboard powered.Manufacturers represented include, Broom, Simmonds, Delta, Albatross, Fenn&Wood, Windboats of Wroxham, ChrisCraft, Century, Charnwood, Healey Marine, Cantieri Donoratico, Cantieri Riva, Cantieri Archangeli, Winner, Owens, Cutter, Microplas, Fletcher, Shakespeare, Bluebird Marine, Fairey, Triana, Donzi, Glastron, Lone Star, Chestnut, With, Dowty, Colvic, Birchwood, Interglass, Toby, Yarecraft, Dorsett, Moonfleet, Sussex, Sprite, Wm Jackson, GlenL and small racing boats such as Speedliner, Jinx and Swift and vintage stepped Hydroplanes.
There are also ex-raceboats, such as Stapley, Tremlett, Bristol, Burgess, Don Shead / Soni Levi, ski / raceboats. Materials used for these boats consist of planked wood, plywood, aluminium and fibreglass – all are represented and a few have been built recently from old self build plans.Given the size of these boats, most are carried on road trailers; so our members are spread throughout the UK, with some based around Europe. Prices for these boats range between the usable £100 1960s family runabout through to the £250,000 Rivas.The CMBA has a number of rallies throughout the year, on waters around the UK.Boats are used in company, which helps in the event of any breakdowns. Typical venues are Loch Lomond, Falmouth, Cardiff Bay and Poole Harbour, for the faster runs and lakes that enable boat and motor testing at Ivy Lake and Chertsey.Albatross specific rallies and racing takes place at Fritton Lake and Oulton Broad.Slower rallies take in the Thames, River Soar, Crinan Canal (with fast sections) and Lake Windermere. These venues give our members a chance to run antique outboards and smaller, more delicate boats. These rallies are always family oriented and younger members are also encouraged to learn how to handle the boats in a safe environment.

New series of talks at Beale Park this year

WaterWays_Master

We are delighted to announce a new series of free talks this year for all visitors to the show wanting to learn about the art & craft of boating either under sail, steam or self-steam – and anything in between. Designed to be lighthearted and informative, the programme of talks is still being finalised but we are pleased to provide some early news about those who are attending to present their ideas…

Speaker: Alec Jordan

image001

Alec started making plywood boat kits in 2003, having made an escape from the constantly changing world of IT.  As a frustrated rower, living well away from any rowing club, he saw the possibilities of re-creating the coastal rowing regattas between the Fife coal mining villages.  In 2009, other parties got involved, out of which the St Ayles Skiff was designed by Iain Oughtred.

Alec’s vision of regattas around the Kingdom of Fife in community built boats was rapidly superseded as the St Ayles was taken to the hearts of scores of Scottish and Northumbrian coastal communities, elsewhere in the UK, and further afield in Australia, New Zealand, the USA & Canada.

During the past eight years, almost 300 St Ayles kits have been sold; Alec will be telling the audience the story of this internet fuelled rebirth of local boat building and rowing, and its incredible effects in its communities.

Speaker: Tim O’Connor

Tim started canoeing at the age of 11 and sailing at the age of 13 and made his living teaching them for some years. Despite 30 fattening years in the world of business he’s maintained his interest in both.

Those who go boating can develop strong allegiance to their chosen mode of propulsion. Others will broadcast the attractions of petrol, diesel, electric or steam engines. Yet more will extol the virtues of rowing, sculling, pedaling or poling.

Tim is going to make the case for sail. A mode of propulsion used for centuries sail that continues to entertain, inspire, attract and engage. From racing to cruising, oceans to gravel pits Tim will show you how sailing is for you.

Having been described as a ‘serial boatbuilder’ Tim will also try to inspire you to put saw to wood and get involved in the hugely diverse world of amateur boat building.

What’s in a name?

Show sponsors, MS Amlin, formerly Haven Knox-Johnston, have been taking care of boats and their owners for 30 years and now as MS Amlin we have a change of name. That’s prompted us to think about the names people give their boats – so we’re asking everyone for their own stories about how they named their boat – or to just send in photos of the best or funniest names for your chance to win tickets for the Southampton Boat Show 2017.

Sailnoar will be using the Beale Park Boat & Outdoor Show to introduce its latest small boat for DIY builders. The Flattie Skiff is a versatile 12 foot dinghy for sailing, rowing or out-boarding.

Easy to follow plans with a comprehensive builders manual will be on sale together with plans and patterns for others in their range of easy to build boats. Also being exhibited will be the SailnOar Launching trolleys. These are fully galvanised, strong, foldable and adjustable for most boats up to 15 feet, and the pull handle model with forward swivel wheel is suitable for easily managing heavier dinghies single-handedly.
