Future of CC19 Production or end of the line?

Postby Chris Wicks » Sun Jul 09, 2017 7:35 am

Hi,
I have heard via this forum that CC19 production looks likely to end when Bob Brown (Honnor Marine) retires. I have no knowledge or contact with the boat building industry but would like to see us make a big push to encourage continued production anywhere in the world. I have sent a message to Martin Dooley at Character Boats as a starting point, I realise this is highly unlikely to succeed, but anything is worth a try surely. Somewhere in mainland Europe perhaps?

Hi Martin,

We are getting great pleasure from our Lune Whammel in Greece. I am one of several Cape Cutter owners or former owners who enjoy both types of boat. Cape Cutter 19's were added to the Honnor Marine range when the company was taken over by Bob Brown in Rochdale. As bob is now retiring I hear he has sold on rights to the Devon Range of boats but not as yet to the Cape Cutter.

The Cape Cutter is a direct alternative (and cheaper) choice to the Cornish Shrimper and as a modern classic design it would be a shame to see her go out of production. Is there anyway Character boats could take on the rights to the CC19?

I guess the answer is no but it would be fantastic and get much support from the Cape Cutter 19 Association.

It would be good to hear your comments.

I fully agree with Chris that we, as the Assoication or as a group of Cape Cutter 19 enthusiasts, ought to do all we can to keep the boat in production and grow the numbers.

I had not read the posts on this Forum recently, but having come across Chris's post today, I searched and found the full thread in the General - Members Only - section under the same heading as above. In order to keep all the contributions in one place, I will switch to that thread. If you are interested, please follow ...

All the best

The other thread is in the members only section I think if anything can be done it will be by a members initiative. I will revert to that thread.
Thanks

Honnor Marine is sold. But the website says nothing about the CC19...?
