ENGINEERING - SALES BROCHURE 1961
is a representation of the first brochure issued by
Huwood Engineering of Newcastle-upon-Tyne after their
acquisition of the rights to manufacture Simmonds boats
SKI-BOATS are now being built on the River Tyne by an
internationally known firm of boat builders who are
noted for making a top class product.
Some of those being prepared for the coming season are
shown on the outside cover of this brochure.
That the Simmonds Ski-boat has always been a 'good boat'
has been acknowledged in speedboat circles for a number
it is a better boat than ever. New constructional methods
have made it stronger and even more reliable and this
has been done without significantly adding to its weight
and without detriment to its wonderful performance.
The Simmonds Ski-boat, shown above on its self-locating
trailer, could well be the boat of the year for many
years to come.
water ski-ing is one of the few exclusive sports remaining
today, it need not be too expensive. Simmonds Speedboats
are specially designed to fulfil every water ski-ing
and speedboat requirement at the lowest possible cost.
Concentration has been directed at avoiding a proliferation
of designs, each of which would have entailed high development
charges, and on perfecting one boat with the widest
possible appeal. The result is the Simmonds Ski-boat
as it is offered today, a speedboat which exactly meets
the great majority of ski-boat and speedboat needs.
Proof of the wisdom of this policy is that the Simmonds
Ski-boat is recognised and extensively used by the country's
leading ski-boat clubs.
Another important factor in keeping costs down has been
the fact that sales costs have been rigorously controlled.
Most Simmonds sales are made through recommendation
rather than sales promotion methods more appropriate
to larger firms working on a mass production basis.
Prospective buyers are confidently advised to seek out
a Simmonds owner and take his advice.
Ski-boats - for pleasure and competitive water sport.
Ski-ers and racers of all ages, expert and novice alike,
thoroughly appreciate the many sterling qualities of
the Simmonds Ski-boat.
