The Gault Foldable Boat
« on: August 18, 2020, 11:01:35 AM »
My Father-in-Law has just given me his Gault Foldable boat. I'm trying to find out some more information about it. It's in great condition with the original instructions/bag etc. I believe he was related to Robert Gault.

Hi, sorry for late reply.

The Gault was a short production run boat made in liaison with Shell Petroleum and patented by Robert Gault who lived at 12 Ranmoor Cliffe Rd, Sheffield S10 3HB in 1982. It was patented in the USA on the 7th December 1982.

The actual designer is unknown, but more than likely was Robert Gault because he was the patent holder.

I have put more on the main web site: http://www.oldspeedboats.co.uk/gault-folding-boat/
If you have or had a contact, it may reveal more than I ever could. Thank you - BN
