its changed since we where on it!!


wife was a travel agent then and we couldnt afford much. always wanted to go on the broads so we decided to do it.

turned up at the boatyard saw all the big lovely boats and the guy said yours is round here.  walked round the corner and could have cried.  got on did the training and within 5 minutes of having the roof open and cruising down the river we where so happy!!   great little boat.  and looks really nice since its been done up.

Hi Peter


Welcome to the site from me

I think you and Iain are talking about different boats 

The original Sparkling Horizon was a Safari 25 sold and replaced with another craft  of a different type but the same name

Hi Peter and welcome. It's true what you say, a boatring holiday will either end a friendship or cement it for life.
