From Multihull Review
, February 2009
went into liquidation in January 2009. Apparently the founder of Broadblue
Furniture company, Mark Elliot, has teamed up with broker
World, to purchase
the moulds of the 385 and 415/435. They're trying to also purchase
the 500 moulds.
It's not clear where Hillyards fits into all of this.
BB version 1.0 was set up under the Broadblue Furniture company by a bunch of ex-Prout executives. I wonder if the ex-Prout people are involved in BB version 2.0?
It's a shame really, but I expect there will be quite a few more builders who'll share the same fate.
