31/01/2014 - Eventful week - 2 Sports Pro 850's down for order!

It’s been a busy and eventful week at Humber. We’ve had our sister company Quinquari down to visit these last couple of days which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Also our beloved IFCA fisheries patrol boat has left the factory and is currently en route to its new home in Liverpool.

The big news is that we have taken orders for two Sports Pro 850 boats on the same day this week. These luxury boats will be going to some beautiful European locations. The first will be going to Portimao in Portugal where we already have a 10m Humber in the waters. The other Sports Pro 850 is going to the sensational location of the Swedish Archipelago.

There is a real buzz around Humber and with offshore commercial boats high in demand as well, we would urge you all to join the hype and get involved with us as we continue to successfully operate into our 50th year!


28/01/2014 - IFCA Fisheries Patrol Boat

As some of you may have seen on our social media channels, we took the fisheries patrol boat out for a test spin last Friday. The customers and our crew were equally pleased about its performance.

It turned out to be an almost perfect day to be out on the river Humber for a cold January morning with calm winds and clear skies. The boat performed sublimely showing off its incredible acceleration, impressive speed and brilliant handling.

Comments on the day were that the boat was fantastic and that the customers couldn’t wait to have it in their own backyard.

We did have professional photographers on hand so we are hoping to have some better quality pictures of the boat in action.
