Current status:


There are few shell builders that can build to this quality but the highly respected Simon Wain of Brinklow Boat Services was commissioned to produce a replica tug style boat of the once commercial carrying fleet of eight boats of W H Cowburn and Cowpar of Manchester. The shell took a considerable amount of time to complete with a resulting top quality reproduction complete with fine lines both above and below the waterline. No expense was spared in her build, with exotic hardwoods used throughout. As you cannot fit just any engine in a shell of this style, a fabulous Gardner 3LW Marine, renowned for its smooth running and mellow exhaust note was chosen. There are four berths aboard, two of which are in the Boatmans cabin, with the other two on a clever slide out bed which in daytime mode is housed under the tug deck. From the offset Siskin was completed as a GAS FREE boat with cooking and cabin warmth provided by a Vintage diesel range, with extra heat from the skirting rads throughout the cabin. 230V power onboard is provided by a 3.5kW pure sine wave inverter with a 24V quiet running cocooned diesel generator charging the batteries.
