  1. I have to say I've been surprised by the level of discounts being offered by ferry, I understand the yard is under new ownership. The new owners have obviously made a huge investment buying the ferry operation I've no idea who the new owners are or their background in the holiday, boat hire industry is. Could this be a case of just trying to get the cash coming in after such a huge initial outlay on the back of slow early bookings. You can also see cost cuttings in their new build graceful emblem, no bonded windows is the one that sticks out for me. Shame really as the metal framed windows just dont look right.
  2. I see barnes have posted some details of their new boat of Facebook. It's a remodel alpha craft designed mold andthey are promising some new build, tech and design features. I knew that had been working on the mold tool for some time. Great to see further investment in hire craft. Any news from richardsons on the new sedan boat that's in development.
  3. I would normally drive, but am unable to at the moment due to a health issue. Thanks for the info.
  4. I also saw this yesterday and called them, yep it's True I enquired about a boat and couldn't believe the size of the discount. Think we will take advantage of the offer.
  5. Hi guys, looking for some info on cabs from Norwich stn to ferry marina, are cab firms in Norwich happy to go out that far ? Cost isn't a problem. Does Keith still run his cab in horning, thinking of the return journey. Thanks in advance
  6. Some memories their, my family hired Phoenix from potter. Seem to remember she had a green painted hull back then ? And I'm sure it's around the time of the massive investment in the richardsons fleet.
  7. Cant see that needing to much TLC before it go off to work. Booking it for sept
  8. Thanks for the info guys, good to see the yard will keep going big fan of ferry marina.
  9. Just received an email from ferry marina anouncing new ownership. Any idea who now owns the business ?
  10. Hi captain, i should of worded that better. I looked at there web site and noticed that for 2019 ( sorry don't know boats names ) they have withdrawn the calypso design and the alpha single level boat. So i guess the fleet is one down unless there is another boat in the pipeline. But agree a much improved and more modern fleet.
  11. Nice addition to there fleet, have they retired two boats this season ?
  12. Hired Gainsborough girl about 12 years ago, really couldn't fault the presentation of the boat. Only niggle we bad was the saloon upholstery need an updating, from the recent photos I've seen it's still the same. Summer craft stand out for me in terms of boat presentation along with silverline at Brundal. If a yard puts that much effort on prepping a boat on turn around then I'm pretty sure everything else has had just as much attention.
  13. Hi Clive, how weird I asked about the progress of this boat the other day on your fb page. Looks really smart I'm a fan of sedan type boat. Look forward to seeing her afloat.
  14. After a recent visit to the broads, I noticed a few hire boats with quite smokey engines, one that was partially bad, was chucking out quite a lot of blue smoke at ranworth. From a very well respected yard, I just got to wondering, how long does a hire boats engine last..
