Jocelyn From Martham Boats

Very impressed. Looks like a  sympathetic modernisation both inside and out.

It’s Jocelyn 4 formally Little Grebe.

Here'an idea, when we've finished a weeks holiday on Lightning, what an excellent way to finish off with a weekend on her, leisurely cruising the upper Thurne network.?. Hmmmm, I wonder how much for a weekend.?.

I've really been liking the look of the Martham fleet recently. I can't help thinking they under sell themselves somewhat. They have the luxury of two unique selling points, being the only all wooden motor cruiser fleet (I know the sailys have the Ludham place) and the only fleet above Potter Bridge, save for the single small boat which Whispering Reeds offer. Increasingly also, they offer the only way of spending time afloat above the bridge in anything other than a day boat or sailing boat. Taking all that in to account, their website is low key and short on interior photos - opportunities missed I feel.

I think they are doing a wonderful job and I don't know how they do it.

Actually I do know how they do it, technically - but not financially!

Wow!

This is great news and I am very tempted to hire. My family's first boat hired on the Broads was Delight in 1947 although I am not sure which one. My understanding is that 4 of the Delights were rebuilt to become Jocelyn class in the late 50s/early 60s by Martham. Therefore I may have the chance to hire a related boat dating from the 30s although after the rebuilds/refits I think it is something akin to Triggers broom all be it a very nice one!

I note Jocelyn appears to have replaced Judith 4 which no longer appears on the website. I wonder what is going to happen to her.

Having a new hog and keel I believe the last one to be done.

I can see that  Jocelyn has a different stern treatment to the usual Martham designs.  very interesting.
