See how charity boat restoration project transforms Lake District Calvert Trust Catamaran!

Each year International Paint Ltd Europe’s leading supplier of boat paint maintenance solutions choose a charity project whereby they restore a boat back to its former glory.  This year they contacted The Lake District Calvert Trust and as chance would have it, we were in the process of decommissioning our old catamaran. This was the ideal opportunity to repair and revamp the catamaran, at no charge!  The Catamaran which had seen better days, had been invaluable in offering people with disabilities the chance to experience sailing on lake Windemere where it had been moored.  International Paints have been keeping a blog diary on how the project has been going, so follow the link to or follow them on facebook to find out the full story. 


Once completed, the restored Catamaran will be moved to a new mooring on Lake Derwentwater where it will, once again, service the needs of the Calvert Trust visitors for many years to come.
