Why Brompton For Boating
Posted on 02 March 2019
Brompton bikes and boats are the perfect combination of surf and turf! Check out these 5 reasons a Brompton compliments your boating lifestyle.
1 - Explore More (Freedom on Sea and Land)
No longer tied to your boat, a Brompton will make your trips off the boat more exciting and adventurous by discovering how effortlessly (and how quickly) you can get around on land. No more walking, no more transit!
2 - Meet the Locals
Bromptons, with their unique aesthetic and Houdini-esque fold, are natural conversation starters with locals. You’ll find it’s the key to unlocking “locals only” knowledge with the added benefit of forging new friendships wherever you go!
3 - Let the Good Times Roll
Your resupply runs have never been such a breeze. Your Brompton is the perfect grocery getter, making those trips into town both fun and fast, with enough carrying capacity to bring back supplies that’ll last for ages. Giving you more time to relax and take in the sun.
4 - Peace of Mind
With its easy fold and compact size your Brompton goes where you go. Tuck it under your table at a marina cafe/bar, stow it in your cart at the grocery store, or stash in the coat check at a gallery or museum. Your Brompton is safe and sound and out of sight of thieves. Brompton's are ED coated for corrosion resistance, making it a lifelong sailing companion.
5 - Save Money
Go ahead, treat yourself to another Mai Tai. No longer relying on expensive Taxi/Ubers, or city transit systems, you will be saving money on every trip out of the Marina!
