BOAT Tractor Presentation

BOAT Tractor Presentation

This year’s LAMMA show was bigger than ever, and Vapormatic welcomed a record number of visitors to their stand. The event also included the presentation of the BOAT (Bicton Overseas Agricultural Trust) charity raffle prize – a Massey Ferguson 35, fully restored with Vapormatic parts.

The charity raised over £13,000 in selling draw tickets for the fully restored tractor.

"Over the moon"

Mrs. Mary Sims from Lincoln was picked as the lucky winner and was presented with the keys to her prize at the event. She said,’ I’m over the moon to have won; I’ve been trying to win a BOAT tractor for several years now!’

Vapormatic donated all the parts for the rebuild, including a 3 cylinder short motor for the Perkins engine. The bright red Massey Ferguson 35 tractor was restored in a 24 hour rebuild operation by Bicton College engineering students in March of last year. It is a 1963 multi power (change on the move high to low gearbox) model which makes it a rare and sought after by vintage tractor enthusiasts.

The presentation to Mrs Sims was made by Bill Vellacott (Chairman, BOAT pictured bottom left), and Nick Lee (Vapormatic UK Sales Manager, pictured right).

Another tractor will be raffled off by BOAT in 2011. More details of this tractor will be available soon.
