Open Launch Range
First Open Launch was built at 30ft in 2002. Designer: Richard Pierce. The Open Launch is a contemporary take on a traditional type of launch. We drew inspiration from the Edwardian steam launch “Bat”, currently in the collection at the Windermere Nautical Trust, to copy what we considered to be the “perfect” sheer line.
Designed to be a roomy day boat, capable of carrying up to 12 people in comfort and style, she is an extremely attractive launch and a pleasure to drive.
This boat has been built at 23ft and 25ft and 30ft.
She was designed to be electric but all the launches built to date have had inboard Beta Marine diesels installed. She would carry a steam engine beautifully.
