We had the great privilage to meet up with Alan and Tan at Loddon a couple of years back, and they invited us aboard where we enjoyed a nice cuppa and a good chat, so i can vouch for the fact that Ranworth Breeze is a really lovely boat, and that Alan is dedicated to running a very efficient and friendly syndicate.

As always, Alan, you will always be welcome aboard Lightning whenever we`re aboard. I would imagine other members of our syndicate would also make yo welcome.

If these professional managed syndicate boats are as good as what I'm lead to believe (And for those that dress that way they do seem to fit the bill)  Then how come there doesn't seem to be a month that goes by without seeing someone wanting to sell their  shares?

We`ve had our share in Lightning for nearly 5 years, and have no intention of selling. There`s also a great many other shareholders in Lightning and other syndicates who have had their shares for a fair number of years. Yes, we do get share sales regularly, but these are only to be expected. Some people use syndicate ownership as a stepping stone to full ownership, some after getting rid of their own boat to have more affordable boating with costs devided up to 12 1/2 ways. Some think it will be cheap boating, but realise there`s more to it, and decide to sell. There will always be shares for sale in all syndicate boats, but most (if not all?) syndicates have long standing members who are more than happy to keep their shares.  In fact, i did say elsewhere, i`m hoping to retire in 4 1/2 years time, and when i do, i`m seriously considering buying a second share in Lightning to give us more time on the Broads, WITHOUT the sheer expense of having to pay ALL costs, running costs, moorings etc etc etc all myself.

That interior does look rather lovely. I really like the design, it's just the idea of never being able to pass under Ludham that's always put me off Ranworth Breeze. For all you South Broads lovers out there she'd make a brilliant investment for the next new owners.

Hello Griff, 

Sadly we have had more than our share of owners that have had disabling medical conditions, life changing events or simply work has prevented the use of allocations. 

Needless to say none of the shares for sale our mine. I will be calling on family and friends to crew for me.

Regards

Alan

Hello Broads01,

The interior does look better than the pictures because these pictures were before last years winter service where the forward and lounge upholstery was replaced by a almost similar fabric by Jeckells. We also replaced the bow thruster that year.

Last years and this years winter services were part of a two year plan of improvements on the boat hence the price of last and this years management fees to pay for this.

Regards

Alan

The pictures show that it's a lovely and well cared for boat, but it looks like it's air draft makes it limited to more than most bridges to a standard hire boat on the Broads!

There's no new news in that, since Ranworth Breeze has been a most successful syndicate boat for many years. Those who prefer to cruise the south rivers (or grew up on them) know well how comfortable and well adapted such a boat can be, for that area.

As to a "standard" hire boat by comparison, I think you will find that a great number of the newer ones can't get under any more bridges than Ranworth Breeze!

I seem to remember being told, or read on here, she can do Ludham, but only at VERY low tide, which means it`s NOT advisable, in case you get trapped above because the next tides are nowhere near as low. It`s why Lightning is not permitted to go above Potter Heigham bridge. It`s also worth remembering Gt Yarmouth bridges, the airdraught on those can sometimes be not as much as you would need. Anyway, i`m sure Alan will be along to give you all the bridge information you may require.

Is Fair diplomat a Birchwood 340? because that squeezes under Ludham bridge, maybe because it has extra things fitted for the canopy that makes it a bit taller..

Off hand, I should think she probably can, but does she need to?

To enjoy the Broads, she does in my view.

It was reported on here that Fair Diplomat is a heavily modified Birchwood 340, having the superstructure reduced in height, and i believe the hull was also modified too. She`s not as tall as Ranworth Breeze because RB is built on standard Birchwood mouldings.

Ah right thanks for clearing that up, Diplomat is often up the Ant so guessed  there must be some differences..

Hello CapinKev,

No Ludham bridge is out by a good 14 inches of air-draft, A similar but budget hire-craft can get under Ludham bridge but again this is tide dependant. This Birchwood was a special which has over 15 to 16 inches cut off its hull and superstructure.

Regards

I would say the reasons for sale are fourfold:

  • People giving up boating altogether. The average age of syndicate owners is relatively high, so this is sadly fairly common.
  • People who have only previously hired and have now got a taste for what a boat costs to run and how it all works and are looking to take the next step to outright ownership.
  • A change of circumstances. This might be loss of job, relocation, divorce etc.
  • It wasn't for them. This one is genuinely probably the least common.

You can save money by running a syndicate yourselves, no-one doubts that and we've certainly considered it. With a large syndicate, though, it's a lot of work to manage everything and unless a few people are willing to dedicate enough time it is simpler to pay a management company who charge much less than you could hire a member of staff for.
