Classic speed boats are very rare because the UK is lacks public slips or are just too hard to find. Sea water causes damage so not always popular because of the damage it causes to the boats. A classic boat typically lasts between 3 and 5 years before it becomes an expensive repair so is sold. Of course these boats are very collectable which is excellent because unlike cars, they tell a lot about our history and the skills of those people who keep them going. Here is a selection of many for you to enjoy.
