The Setras are coming!

DSC_0059.JPG45 New Setras join Shearings Holidays and National Holidays fleets

On Thursday the 7th of May I was lucky enough to be invited to the official handover of 45 ComfortClass Setras at The Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The ComfortClass Setras are designed and engineered to meet the most demanding requirements. Comfortable and great-looking for the most discriminating of passengers.

The Shearings order consists of :
10 13.02 meter triaxle S 416 GT-HD Grand Tourers finished in gold & brown ,
20 13.02 meter triaxle S 416 GT-HD Shearings Holidays coaches finished in a completely new blue
15 12.20 meter two axle S 415 GT-HD National Holidays Coaches finished in the standard white livery.

The S 416 GT-HD was voted “Coach of the Year 2008” at last year’s UK Coach Rally in Brighton.

The finish of all the coaches was absolutely first class both inside and out and they show just why so many premium operators are choosing Setra these days.

Legroom was very good on all the vehicles , especially the Grand Tourers , which have interestingly reverted to a moquette and leather combination for the seats from the all leather seats of the earlier models.

By the time you read this all 45 Coaches will have entered service and will be carrying satisfied Shearings and National Holidays customers all over the United Kingdom and across Europe.
