I agree nice craft BUT saloon design is its big weakness had it for 1 week and heartily sick of raising and lowering hood yes its electric but frequently slipped off the track necessating manhandling [I expect this slipping has been rectified knowing Royalls] would not hire this craft again myself due to its design mch prefer FLAT Craft however its great if you can overlook this and the saloon, BATH big plus!!!

We hired this boat in August 2007 for two weeks. It's maintained to a very high standard. The engine is beautifully smooth & quiet, the beds have proper sprung mattresses & are very comfortable & the equipment level is very good. The fit out is excellent with proper wood everywhere. The only downside to the presentation was that the upholstery on the sofa & helmsman's seat was somewhat tired. Although the layout is standard for a centre cockpit, the dimensions inside are unusual, having extra large cabins with a small saloon. The cabins were both lovely, especially the island double bed, but the saloon is too small to seat four people in comfort. The straight sofa is less comfy than the L-shaped type. The rear ensuite washroom has a sit-bath & is really nice. The front ensuite is OK but is too small for the shower to be practical to use. The electric sliding roof is a lovely luxury. Overall, we were very pleased. Would definitely hire a boat from Royalls again.

We hired Royal Stuart in August 2006 and found the boat to be very clean, well presented and maintained, just as you would expect from Royall's Boatyard. A thorough and efficient hand-over was given by the yard and we were underway shortly after 2-00pm. The boat is spacious, well laid out and handles well although it is susceptible at times to being caught by the wind, making mooring interesting on occasions. The Nanni engine under the cockpit floor is quiet and started easily every time with full rotation of the ignition key for 30 seconds to engage the pre-heater and a depression of the ignition key to engage the starter. The electrically operated sliding cockpit roof certainly made life easy and the windscreen lowered in a matter of moments - only requiring 3 supports to be detached beforehand. A plaque on the dashboard stated that the boat required a headroom of 7'-3" for the bridges although the Pilot service at Potter Heigham were prepared to take the boat through with a clearance of 7'-0". It is mandatory that the Pilots are used at both Potter Heigham AND Wroxham bridges on this boat! Unfortunately, we were on the rivers after a period of heavy rain and during low pressure - so we were unable to pass under either bridge due to higher than normal river levels. We did experience rainy weather at times - some even hard - and there were no leaks from the windows or canopy whatsoever. The cutlery, crockery was for 6 persons even though the boat sleeps a maximum of five. The cooking utensils, pots and pans were spotless and sufficient for all needs. Along with the combi TV/Video, a hair drier (fixed in the front cabin), iron and vacuum cleaner were all provided free of charge. The only criticism that I could find (and it is only minor!) is that the fresh water filling point was on the bows, which made refilling at some stern-on mooring points impossible due to the short length of hose and our distance from the tap. However, this was easily overcome by waiting for a vacated mooring nearer to the tap for a top-up.
