  1. Understandable, but if people want a stag do on the broads won’t they just hire two boats?! You never completely remove a problem i guess much as there is always a **** in a crowd if you hire enough boats or whatever it is a certain percentage will be idiots and if capable of being thrown into a minority or different group different to the onlooker that doesn’t touch their life it is easy to say good riddance A shame to see big reductions of boats at a time of high demand but I guess everything has its day Dan
  2. They did sell one Monarch, Jamaica & Trinidad end of last season, and now the other one within the class is going to Monarch was quite dated, but Jamaica was a relatively modern, nice boat and would let strongly also, so I was suprised they decided to sell (either but ultimately both of them) these at the current time. Trinidad... the AF32's are certainly not the first to let, but again not that old/in good shape and will have had a good season in the current climate so they are clearly making decisions not just on demand or £'s. Perhaps another mooring basin will be free'd up and the profile of stock is being changed Dan

  4. I agree, demand is there so it can only be they don't want to run them/a choice to move away from this Still, I suppose it is their business and they do still have a fair number of cheaper boats left at the moment The newer additions all seem to be small, high quality boats which are perhaps much less trouble and doing well for them, or the accountants prefer them!?! Dan
  5. It looks like the following are leaving Richardsons at the end of the season... quite a lot of boats, from their more affordable end of the scale... All Ideal 45's (The Champagnes, Acapulco, Challengers) Blue Horizon Clear Horizon Jamaica Monarch All Aquafibre 42s (Pearl, Voyager, Superior Gem etc) Mermaid San Bernadette Trinidad Southern Gem Looks to leave a bit of a gap in the market for the budget conscious pirate brigade ;) Dan
  6. The earlier 90's one way was indeed Brundall, and was to Harbour Cruisers Think this only lasted a year or two as well! Dan
  7. It is the same boat.... The Wallingford fleet was renamed after the Richardsons takeover (Maid Boats to Maidline Cruisers for 1992, and Benson & Thames Ditton bases became Benson Pleasurecraft & Ferryline Cruisers for the same year) and the fleet took on Maid of (insert place name) rather than the former girls names under Maid Boats. For the 1998 season (or thereabouts) the Wallingford fleet were all renamed to girls names again, and this one became Maid Clarissa. As said, she came originally from Turks and was built for 1980 I think, and was a bit unusual then in having two rear singles rather than the rear double layout (which she actually now has). Dan
  8. Looking good Clive Liking the front seat setout... a great differentiator from other similar designs and a nice update on the original Aquafibre 42/38 front seat arrangement Dan
  9. Did it come from Harvey Eastwood? However, if the year is right i think they were with Hoseasons at the time Dan
  10. Internals now added of Skyway.... looks bob on https://www.hoseasons.co.uk/boat-holidays/skyway-bh2698
  11. Surely it'll be out for the start of the school hols?! Whatever is Clive messing about at!
  12. ... and bookings on it look to have flown off the shelf as well looking at the availability calendar!
  13. Looks nice that, nice name too.... though looks like Hoseasons have messed up something with the layout as it is marked and not showing in the right section/as a second photo
  14. Is it all a bit of a nonsense? The link I followed showed Dream Gem at the top cheap but fully booked (didnt they remove/sell all these after last year) and then Serene Gem (not run since 2019 I don't think) and Tropical Gem (same or year earlier) Dan
