Iconic Bridlington Pleasure Boat’s Future At Risk

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, and having not being able to sail since October 2019, and therefore having no income, the future of Bridlingtons iconic and much loved pleasure boat, the Yorkshire Belle, is at risk.

The owners have had to turn to the public for their help, in raising much needed funds.

Mr Peter Richardson, who has owned the boat since 1982, told Bridlington Gold that, reluctantly, they have had to ask the public for their help, via donations and a go-fund-me page. Details of these can be found on their website: yorkshire-belle.co.uk

Built in 1947, the Yorkshire Belle has, over the past 73 years, provided pleasure trips from Bridlington Harbour and brought joy and happiness to thousands of locals and visitors alike.

Each year she has to undergo rigorous inspections and safety checks, in order to obtain a licence, the cost of which, along with regular maintenance and running costs, amounts to thousands of pounds.

Mr Richardson also told Bridlington Gold that he and his family are passionate about the boat and keeping her sailing for many years to come, but may not be able to do this without your help.

He added that he would like to thank everyone, in advance, for their support in keeping this dearly loved Bridlington icon where she belongs and enabling her to continue bringing pleasure to all who see and sail in her.
