BRISTOL 16 and 32

The Bristol 32 ‘Annabelle’ and the Bristol 16 ‘Verity’ were commissioned by the same client, with the 16 being launched in 2016 and the 32 in spring 2017. Both are strip plank timber epoxy construction as are the other launches in the Bristol range. ‘Verity’ is powered by a 10hp twin cylinder Nanni diesel and ‘Annabelle’ by twin Yanmar 110hp diesels giving her a top speed in excess of 20kts. This elegant pair of launches won the Powered Vessels and New Build category in the 2018 Classic Boat Awards.

The handsome Bristol 27 is equally at home on placid inland waters or the coast and the first owner plans to use her on the Thames and the Solent. She is built of strip plank yellow cedar epoxy with mahogany trim, and is powered by a 52hp Vetus diesel giving her a speed of 11knots.

Also designed for Star Yachts is the Bristol 22, a trailerable 22footer also of strip plank epoxy. She has a displacement hull driven by a 20hp Yanmar diesel and is also suitable for inland or coastal use.

Due for launch in 2021 are a 20ft semi displacement coastal launch and an 18ft electric river launch.
