Bucks Fizz 2. (BF2) is a 26' Sealine 260. Built in 1991 she was found by her current owners in a farmyard in Durham in 2013. Restored at Whitehaven Boatyard by Chris Dobson Marine (our old business). She spent time at Whitehaven and then Windermere. Over the past two years the current owners have not had the time to use her and like all unused boats she has deteriorated. The current owners have kindly let us use her as a demonstration boat, and project BF2 was born. Follow her progress and join in the technical discussions as she is re fitted with the latest technology.
BF2 is packed with the latest modern electronics.
