Nauticalia to Distribute World-famous Beken Calendars

Nauticalia to Distribute World-famous Beken Calendars

We are pleased to announce a new partnership between Nauticalia and Beken of Cowes, to publish Beken’s much-admired Yachting, Sailing Action , Classic and Tall Ships calendars. 

We will take over the production and distribution of the calendars, allowing Beken to concentrate on what they know best – taking spectacular photos of yachts, boats and ships.
The Beken calendars, now in their 38th edition, have been published annually since 1973, and remain high on every boating enthusiast’s Christmas gift list.

Beken have an unrivalled and ever-expanding archive of marine photography, having been in the business since 1888. This is drawn upon most notably in the sepia-toned Classic edition, where it is difficult not to be enthralled by, for example, an early shot of a J-class yacht under full sail, with her impossibly long boom and seemingly countless crew. The colour Yachting calendar and Sailing Action calendar are more contemporary, and you can always be sure that Beken will have captured the most important moments from Cowes Week, Round the Island Race and the many other yachting events that take place on their doorstep each year.  

By happy coincidence, at the same time as partnering with Beken, we are opening our tenth shop – at 15 High Street, Cowes. The new shop, opening 10 July 2009, stocks everything from brass clocks and barometers to Swedish windproof sweaters (perfect for that stroll along the breezy promenade). Naturally the display will also include Beken's boating calendars.

The Beken sailing calendars for 2010 will be the first to benefit from the new partnership, available in our stores and on our website from September. Discounts will be available for volume orders, and our overprinting service can add your name, logo, or advertising message for promotional users.
