Wakeboarding at Rudders…

If you have teenage kids, this may be one way to get them off of the hours spent glued to the internet or computer games and get some exercise! In all seriousness – and admittedly long before the internet and all that goes with it – I was lucky enough to grow up on an island where there was a great deal of recreational and healthy outdoor activity to take part in. Even now, some decades later when having a thoughtful reverie, the old mind goes back to those summer days out on the boat fishing and reading. My brothers were more adventurous with the kayaking and water skiing. One thing for sure when living by the waterside – we all loved restoring old boats and engines. A great way to grow up. I will be forever thankful to my parents for that upbringing.

 Badger Cottage - View From

Badger Cottage Illustrating The Fine Waterside Views From An Elevated Position

Badger Cottage sits in a wonderful open country setting, with magnificent views of Haven waterway and beyond through to the Preseli Hills. It is in a completely secluded position with the nearest neighbours being some 1/2 kilometre away. Badger Cottage is currently used as the boatyard vendors’ home. However it does offer potential as a holiday letting unit. A most attractive waterside residence that has been built to an individual design. It enjoys an outstanding location with extensive river frontage.

Ariel View - Rudders Boatyard & Badger Cottage

Aerial View: Rudders Boatyard and Badger Cottage, Burton, Pembrokeshire

“Rudders” was a Fish Farm until approximately 1983 when planning permission was obtained to create Rudders Boatyard, and to build Badger Cottage under a section 52 planning agreement. The vendors Alastair and Liz Pollard purchased the business in November 1999. At this time the turnover was around £20,000 per annum. During their first 10-12 years involvement, they grew the business an average of a very impressive 30% year on year. The husband worked on this very profitable growth while his wife committed about an hour each day to run the books along with raising the family.  During the poor economic climate and lull in business, the existing staff have been handling pretty much everything (including the books) while the owners have been enjoying a semi-retirement financed by the proceeds from the business. (They have been cruising their catamaran and skiing, etc. for as much as 8 months a year during the past four or five years!). Things are picking up again nicely now so new owners can choose to take a fun “sleeves rolled up” approach of their own, and/or start recruiting more staff…. or keep things just as the current owners like it, the way it is now.

Financial details are available on request. Though it should be highlighted that this way of life is not all about the money. A typical day at the office can include tests such as…

Rudders Boatyard

Work has a unique attraction

There is a wonderful dynamic at play here. The beautiful home with fine views is a prize purchase in and of itself. But then you consider going to work. Anyone with a love of boats and all things nautical will have a spring in their step just heading off for the two minute commute along the path to work. Just some of the elements of Rudders Boatyard are illustrated here…

Boatshed & Marine Workshop - Rudders Boatyard

The Marine Workshop/Boatshed, Rudders Boatyard

A brand new industrial grade boatshed was built in 2008. It is 25 metres long by 6.2 metres wide by 6 metres high. It has two full height electrically operated roller shutter doors and one personnel door. The two roller shutter door design allows for large deep drafted yachts to be brought in with the travel hoist which can then exit via the side door. It also allows for multiple projects to be handled with minimum disruption. The boatshed has the benefit of a fully insulated roof, plenty of natural light from the roof & wall skylights, modern bright low energy lighting, numerous 13amp sockets, water, airline, lifting points and has a concrete base. The low energy floodlighting that has been mounted on three sides of outside of the boatshed is able to light up the whole of the boatyard and can be set to automatically turn on at night as required. There is a security camera to the house with movement sensor, sound and voice plus night light infra-red and telephone dial alarm system with remote key fob. 

Pontoon - At Rudders Boatyard

Pontoon: Rudders Boatyard

Another of the numerous income streams at Rudders Boatyard is the pontoon. A permanently deep water (27ft Low Water Springs) hammer head style landing pontoon with bridge section attached to davits, a 60ft quay wall & leaning posts for various sized vessels are installed. Fresh water supply to the hammer head and a camera on the davits with a video feed, audio, and sensor alarm to the cottage.

Slipway - Rudders Boatyard

Slipway: Rudders Boatyard

Moving on to further revenue generation, the natural slipway is almost unique in the Haven as it is firm, stays clear of mud/ weed, works at all states of the tide, and the bay protects it from cross winds & currents. The Boatyard is positioned within a valley & therefore completely sheltered from all prevailing winds except the rarer Easterlies. 

The following are some of the other services provided by Rudders Boatyard…

Rudders Boatyard Boat Storage Facility

Boat Storage Facility 

Boatyard and Vessel Storage Ashore

A total of about 100 boats are currently being stored/wintered ashore. This can now be increased by a further 100 vessels if the space available is reorganised, or substantially more if a stacking system were Installed. A versatile tractor or the MatbroTele handler is used for launching boats on trailers. There is a specialist hydraulic boat hoist for all the larger vessels.

Quayside Wharfage and Leaning Posts

There is some 60ft of quayside that has accommodated vessels up to 100ft in length. Annual mooring holders are currently able to use the quay wall free of charge, with £20 per day being charged for other vessels. A large anchor is situated near the bottom of the steps to the cottage for customers to safely secure their mast/ high point on vessel when drying out & leaning their yacht/ motor vessel to the wall. There are a total of four leaning posts which can either berth two large vessels that can take the ground either side, or multiple small yachts.

The Bay

The Rudders Bay is used for vessels to dry out, for the assembly & preparation of moorings, storage of anchors & sinkers, etc. All these areas are very sheltered from all but the infrequent Easterlies.

Burton Cliff MAIN 1A

Burton Cliff – Included In The Sale

Beautiful sea views and delightful walks….

Burton Cliff MAIN 1B

Burton Cliff – Included In The Sale

Burton Cliff

The whole of Burton Cliff is included in purchase. The owners have maintained it as a beautiful private country walk but the possibilities could be numerous with the up and coming fashion of “glamping”, fishing (bass & mackerel) or outward bound type activities – subject to any permissions of course. 

Boat Lifting and Mast Handling

Yachts, catamarans, trimarans and motor boats without trailers are lifted out using a fully hydraulic 15 ton capability Knipstra Roodburg boat hoist. Connected to the front end of the Matbro Telehandler this can swiftly and safely haul boats out at any state of the tide and park them with precision (just inches apart if required) anywhere in the yard. It is also designed in such a way as to be able to pick up a custom built cradle complete with yacht and there are a number of wooden boat cradles around the yard which allow large motor boats to be parked & launched in just a few minutes, no chocking required. Masts can be lifted off using a special attachment to the Matbro Telehandler. They are also worked on using a Genie 14 metre reach self-propelled cherry picker (man access platform) to access i.e. The top of masts. There is also a basket that connects to the forks of the MatbroTele-handler. Other uses for these include the maintenance of the boatshed, painting of high top sided vessels, lifting out & installing engines, etc. Either can also be transported and worked on the water/beaches/under jetties with the M2D Amphibious barge called RB6.

Moorings and Mooring Maintenance

There are currently 60 deep water swinging moorings, with room for more. All Rudders’ own moorings (and many others) are serviced annually by the boatyard workboat. Rudders are the leading leisure mooring maintenance company in the Haven and the 11 metre workboat called RB1 is specifically designed for this purpose. It has a purpose built bow roller and 5 ton hydraulic “Super Winch” fitted to the deck, using the latest hi-tech dyneema winch rope to lay/ lift/ service moorings.The amphibious craft is also used on larger jobs or to transport up to 8 moorings at a time. A total of some 200 moorings are serviced and maintained by Rudders. New moorings are also made up and laid & serviced throughout the Haven and beyond towards Tenby.

Skippered & Bareboat Charter

Rudders has built up a great selection of vessels available for pleasure or commercial activities. These include the dual role 11 metre diesel engine motorboat, a Humber Destroyer RIB with 2015 90HP four stroke Tohatsu, an 11 metre amphibious barge with crane, cherry picker and generator, 11 meter work/ passenger boat and the various dinghies.

Boat Trips

For three years Rudders Boatyard ran a pilot “Haven Link” waterbus service spearheaded by Pembrokeshire County Council. The future for this service with current funding constraints remains unclear in the current economic climate. However, as a result of the excellent publicity the yard has received from this initiative, boat trips are often now run on an appropriate vessel as a result.

Contract Work

Rudders has become very successful at working its amphibious barge RB6 for leading construction and painting firms. With a cherry picker or hi-ab crane fitted to the deck, it is possible to reach high up under the jetties to carry out essential works. They are also able to transport up to 10.2 tons. An associate with an identical craft is also regularly contracted in where more than one craft is required or for even more specialist work.

RYA Recognised Teaching Establishment

A range of courses and skippered or bareboat charter can be offered via the RIB or 11 metre motorboat. RYA recognised Powerboat Tuition currently includes levels 1 & 2 & safety boat on RIB RB3, or 11 metre displacement boat RB1. Water ski and wakeboarding tuition or tow sessions are provided using the RIB RB3.

Rudders Boatyard - Rigid Inflatable Boat

Rudders Boatyard: RIB – Rigid Inflabable Boat 

Boats and Equipment

Rudders Boatyard offer a variety of vessels for hire and charter with or without a professional skipper, instructor or crew.

Motorboat RB1

This is an 11 metre boat with 130hp diesel Perkins Sabre Engine. MCA safety coded for two crew and 12 passengers or cargo, up to 60 miles offshore. Skippered/ bareboat hire/ charter available. This is a very versatile boat, modular in design so components are easily removed. Has removable seating cargo or passenger space is maximised by the engine being fitted so far to the rear of the vessel. Stability is enhanced by the cargo or passengers being at or below sea water level. As a workboat, fitted with powerful winch to lift moorings or carry cargo, equipped with removable davits for carrying a dinghy at the stern.

RB6 Amphibious Barge

This is a very capable vehicle/ barge and has many different revenue generating capabilities: Click Here.

RIB RB3

A Humber 5.3m (8 person max) Destroyer RIB with a 2015 90 HP four stroke Tohatsu outboard and roller coaster trailer. Fully MCA safety coded. Used for tuition and towing for wakeboarding, waterskiing and towables. As well as fishing, diving, emergency tow/ rescue and safety boat work.

Ancillary Information

Both Badger Cottage and the boatyard have the benefit of its own well and spring water supply, so enjoy savings of up to 95% on normal water company charges for boatyard and cottage usage. Water is pumped from the well and passes through a UV filter in loft filling a total of four water tanks which fulfil all the requirements of both the cottage and the yard. So as to avoid costly Environment Agency drinking water tests, a separate regular metered mains water supply was installed in approximately 2007. This acts as a back up to the spring water header tank supply, plus is piped to “drinking water only” taps in Badger Cottage and Rudders Boatyard. It has also been set up as an emergency high pressure fire hose to both the home and boatyard buildings. New external double glazed windows & doors were fitted in 2006 under a 10 year guarantee. Cottage exterior walls were re-rendered in 2004. A modern high efficiency condensing central heating boiler & complete hot water & radiator system was installed in 2009. The boiler (located in cupboard in utility room) was carefully specified & located to be able to be “turned up” to handle an existing house extension if so desired. Also has the benefit of an attractive back up oil or solid fuel fired Stanley oven/ central heating system installed in the kitchen.

St Luke’s Centre, 33 Foley Street, Maidstone, Kent

This is a fine looking building. It seems a shame to consider reviving the lapsed planning permission to demolish and replace with a terrace of six dwellings. The existing structure is interesting. It also has a nice plot of ground of around .2 of an acre. The building is recorded as being built around 1887 as a Mission Church. Though the most recent use has been as a builder’s yard and offices. A quick 360 degree scope of the area via Streetview gives an idea of the what and where: click here.

Ailsa Craig Island

Ailsa Craig Island For Sale

Ailsa GG MAIN Resized

Ailsa Craig Island (c) 2014 Knight Frank

Out of respect for the principal parties involved in the triumvirate, but separate ownership of the three main elements of Ailsa Craig Island …

1] The Island, & Miscellaneous Buildings;

2] The Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages, Pier, Railway, & Buildings;

3] The Lighthouse Tower & Engine Room;

… this website – Lighthouses For Sale – will now be reviewing the sale position of these elements on distinct and separate basis.

For clarity, the three elements on Ailsa Craig Island that currently have three separate owners will each have a new dedicated webpage on this website. Primarily to avoid confusion between the different land titles/buildings that ARE for sale, and those, at this time that are NOT for sale.

As the former owner of one of these parts of Ailsa Craig Island, I would recommend anyone with an interest – stakeholders, island visitors, prospective bidders, would be lighthouse building owners etc., to revisit this page and the two other Ailsa Craig pages during the course of April 2014. By the end of this month all three pages relating to Ailsa Craig will have been completely rewritten. Plus a lot of new, and pertinent information made available.

Very best regards,
