Richardson 2019

Recommended Posts

I received my Richardsons brochure this week having requested it online. In the past I've received one automatically as a customer but not this time. However not everybody wants a brochure so making it request-only seems a logical step. It's a superb brochure - not only the boat detail but also in terms of the number of pages devoted to selling the Broads as a holiday destination and providing guidance on handling a boat. There's also coverage of Richardsons' holiday park destinations. In the light of the discussion about the demise of Hoseasons brochure it's good to see Richardsons still very much keeping their brochure on. 

Regarding the fleet there are no new designs included but two more Commanders for next year. I haven't done a boat by boat comparison to 2018 (I'm almost that geeky but not quite) but I did spot Crown Gem has gone. All the other older two berths are still there, however, including Mermaid, Serene Gem and Tropical Gem. The usual set of Horizons and Bountys remains - long live budget boating.

All credit to Richardson's for offering boating for all budgets. 

It is becoming increasingly difficult to find level entry two berth budget boats on the Broads.

Everyone has to start somewhere.

I agree about only sending brochures out to those who request them. I was going through some papers on my desk the other day and uncovered a very glossy Barnes Brinkcraft 2019 brochure that we had been sent ... I think it was 2019 unless the papers on my desk had really been sitting there for longer than I care to admit!! But the point is that I didn't need it and it went in the recycling ... how many others go the same way.

Retrieve it quick, in 50 years time that could be a collector’s item!

How true is that given topics we have had on here about old Hoseason's brochures!

I think we may yet see some other additions to the fleet for 2019, though Clive would be able to confirm..

That popped up on Facebook yesterday. A clever bit of typesetting reads 'Christmas-day boat hire-Wroxham.....' Once you click on the link you twig they don't actually mean Christmas Day.
