Andrew Barton, BCBM's MD, told me, "Never in a million years would we have expected to sell so many shares in such a unique boat in the first two days of the show. The comments we've received have just blown us away and, as the shares are priced at £10,950, it just goes to show that there is a strong market for such a special boat. Previously owned shares were also in demand."

This is all a very welcome change from shows earlier in the year, which were blighted by poor weather.
