Launch of “Old Nick”

18th December, 2020

The latest Ortomarine boat – Old Nick – a 58’ 6″ semi-trad, reverse layout Electric Serial Hybrid, built for Kay and Paul Sumpner was launched at Droitwich in mid-December. The Sumpners plan to spend most of the year on board with their 2 dogs, Bill & Ted and are very much hoping that lockdown will not thwart their plans. Only time will tell. They will be spending Christmas on board, before moving further South to Cowroast Marina on the Grand Union. You can follow their adventure on their blog, which contains a wealth of information on electric serial hybrid boats –
