Shetland Boat Information

Shetland boats have had several owners since it was originally founded in the early 60s. Jack Stokes who owned a boating business called 'Three-Stokes Marine' in Mile End Road, London, joined forces with John Hardy to produce a small outboard cruiser. Jack, at that time had a fibre glass factory in Burnham on Crouch. Along with a yacht designer, the Shetland 69 was designed and 50 of these were built in the first year. This design evolved into the 535 model and an export market was developed, shipping the craft on double decker articulated trailers. By 1978, production had risen to 60 boats a week!


Shetland Boat Additional Information

In 1978, the company won a Queen's award for export. The company was sold to a large group called Wodham Stringer and Jack Stokes severed his association with Shetland.Today shetland is owned by the Reinman family and they build a range of craft from 17ft to 29ft. The craft represent very good value for money and are a popular inland boat. There are still many shetlands afloat.
