Video: Two boats destroyed by fire at Burton Waters Marina

The owner of a boat, which was gutted after a fire at Burton Waters Marina, says he is devastated that six months of work refitting the boat has now gone up in smoke.

Firefighters from Lincoln, Saxilby, Sleaford and Scunthorpe tackled the fire. No one was injured in the incident, which happened on 25 March 2017 at 12.30pm.

Bob Nicholson was renovating the 23-foot Stella Maris for his wife, Sue, who owns the boat worth £9,000.

Speaking to the Lincolnshire Echo, he said: “I’d only just finishing doing it up for sale and it’s such as shame because it’s a complete write-off and someone has been deprived of the chance of earning a nice boat”.

“My wife is heartbroken and I’m totally devastated. I did it up for something to keep my mind occupied,” he explained.

“But it’s just one of those things. It’s no-one’s fault, it just happened,” added Nicholson

It is believed the fire started accidentally after a visiting boat – a Freedom 22 – had just refuelled at the marina’s diesel pump. It is thought a carburettor of the motor yacht backfired and ignited fuel vapour.

The flames spread from the boat to the Stella Maris. The two fuel pumps, jetty and two trees were also on fire, and thick black smoke could be seen above the marina.

The fuel pumps are expected to be back in operation within the next two weeks.

The managing director of Burton Waters Boat Sales, Adam Cox, explained what happened.

“What happened was that a visiting boat came and was fuelled up and then the man came to pay. It was nearly 20 minutes later that he started the boat up and at that point he saw there was a fire on board so he quickly gets off,” he said.

“Our fire safety team tried to deal with the fire at first but it was just too fierce but the firefighters were here really quickly. Thankfully, no-one was hurt,” added Cox.

Firefighters used special pumps to prevent the boats from sinking.

Scott Lane Boat Builders wins SureShade 2016 Dealer of the Year …

SureShade, the U.S. designer and manufacturer of patented retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, announced that Scott Lane Boat Builders in New Zealand has won the SureShade 2016 Dealer of the Year award. SureShade chose Scott Lane Boat Builders for its outstanding sales and service of SureShade sunshade systems throughout 2016.

The SureShade Dealer Award and Recognition program is designed to formally recognize top boat dealers for their sales and service efforts throughout the year. Boat dealer performance is evaluated throughout the year on the criteria of sales performance, installation expertise, customer service, co-marketing efforts and private boat owner feedback.

Scott Lane Boat Builders has established a unique relationship with SureShade acting as both a boatbuilder equipping their custom built yachts with SureShade’s sunshade systems as well as a sales distributor promoting SureShade installations in the New Zealand boating market.

The first boat built by Scott Lane featuring SureShade is their new Zagato Elite Sedan, a 13.5-meter (44-foot) coupe style yacht customized with family-friendly features. The Zagato features SureShade’s ATF Automated Shade seamlessly integrated at their factory so that the shade completely disappears into the boat’s cabin top.

As sales distributors, Scott Lane has provided marketing support promoting American-made SureShade products in the New Zealand boating market by securing feature editorial, photography and video reviews in the country’s top boating publications.

“As boatbuilders of custom boats for 18 plus years many of our clients have asked us for shade systems over cockpit areas,” says Letitia Lane, director at Scott Lane Boat Builders. “The SureShade system provides the perfect solution for our clients to protect against our harsh Kiwi sun in New Zealand.”

According to a Sept. 2016 recreational boating study by Maritime New Zealand, 51 percent of New Zealanders are involved with boating activities. SureShade says the country’s affinity for boating, along with its warm and sunny climate, makes New Zealand an attractive market for the company’s sunshade solutions.

“Scott Lane has been the ideal partner to help us introduce and expand SureShade’s presence in the New Zealand boating market,” said Dana Russikoff, SureShade business leader and co-founder. “Their enthusiasm for our product combined with their expertise in boat building and factory retrofitting makes them a true asset for us as we continue to grow internationally.”

The SureShade Dealer Award Program is open to all U.S., Canadian and international boat dealers involved in the sale or installation of SureShade retractable sunshade systems. Dealers are also encouraged to take advantage of available boat dealer service and support resources that guide them through the product introduction, design, pricing, sales and installation process. Additional resources are also available for customized marketing support by boat brand and style.
