Appleyard Lincoln of Ely

From Boats of the Norfolk Broads

Jump to: navigation, search



Appleyard Lincoln is a name probably not familiar to the boating fraternity on the Broads, originating from Ely in the Cambridgeshire fens, but they produced three of the most popular designs in the early sixties, many of which are still in service today - the Elysians.

With the success of the designs, a number of Elysian hulls were sold separately and boat-builders added their own usually wooden superstructure. These are not easy to be certain, but I have included a number of craft which I believe are based upon Elysian hulls. If anyone knows to the contrary, please contact me.

On the closure of Appleyard Lincoln, the moulds were used by J.G.Meakes of Marlow and Bounty Boats of Brundall.
