We hired this for a week in June this year and must be the worst boat we have ever been on the list of complaints put to richo's is as follows 1: Inadequate seating for ten people and the seating that is there is not wide enough to be comfortable and results in bad posture a Health and Safety risk 2: Flooring in the main saloon is very uneven and if the table is extended , is very unstable and if a child was to run past the table whilst hot drinks were present , this could result in a very nasty scalding accident. Another Health and Safety risk 3: The security of the boat is appalling the canvas screen on the rear of the sliding roof is a joke and cannot be fastened from the inside to stop anyone entering ,added to this the vented widows in all of the bedrooms the glass can be lifted out so all week when we went out anywhere even in temperatures of 23 degrees C , we had to close all the windows . The front sliding windows have no springs in the catches and have to be wedged with folded paper to secure . 4: Cockpit roof has a bad crack in the forward edge which allows the roof to bow on the port side and come off it's runners and had to be lifted back on at great risk to a back injury . 5: Bedroom doors cannot be hooked open to allow bedrooms (tiny cupboards more like ) to air out resulting in damp rooms and damp bedding . 6: At least one of the blankets was filthy with what looked like excrement upon it . 7: The middle bathroom floor is not sealed at the edges allowing water to escape to the bilges and out of the door jamb a piece of which is missing . 8: Also in the middle bathroom the sink taps have so much green algae growing in them they look like a pond . 9: Even after the efforts of your service fitter to seal a leak in the middle bathroom toilet there is still a leak from the pump causing effluent to seep onto the plinth by the toilet . 10: The galley is not big enough to cater for three people let alone ten space is so limited that it is a hazard also the cooking rings will not simmer if you turn the gas down low it goes out . We have had a reply from Richo's stating that nobody else has made complaints (See above review) But thier engineers have righted the points made sorry but this one puts us off hiring again from this yard and we have been with them for the last 5 years

Hired this boat with a full crew of 10 and it was very over crowded i wouldnt recommened more than 6 onboard as 10 people cannot all sit together in the saloon and the single cabin only has room to walk into and then the beds there.
