Huge disappointment - shabby, tired looking and definitely in need of updating; the boat not me! For a similar price you can shop around and get something far better equipped and more comfortable. If you need all the berths then good luck, but you won't all be able to sit together in the same space and you'll have fun trying to get enough hot water for showers. If you're new to boating, read the instructions on how to handle it, take the advice of the quay rangers and take your time! This is a BIG boat but OK to handle when you get use to it. Can't help feeling this is one for a retro enthusiast, not for a family expecting a bit of comfort and relaxation.

Have just come back from first ever boating holiday and what a fab week we've had. Spent 7 nights on Richardsons San Diego and for her age she is a great boat :-) for 2 adults and 4 kids it was perfect. Loads of room and able to go under all the bridges San Diego was a great choice - would recommend to anyone. Broads are fantastic great holiday.

Have just got back this afternoon after 4 days on San Diego . Which boat were you on Either Richardsons have given San Diego a quick refit or you found something we didn't . Ok the outside is looking a little Grim ,but for a nearly 22 year old boat its not bad , the thing is huge and the driving position is well forward so you really have to keep thinking about the stern when turning in tight spaces saying that it reversed out of Nettishead Staithe this morning no problem as there were only four of us we went for ages without bumping into each other , everything on it worked it was comfortable , the only downside is it is a bit on the juicy side four days Stalham to Wroxham to Yarmouth to Potter to Nettishead to Stalham 63 litres If you count the little cubby beside the Stateroom it actually sleeps 10 And for the price you pay it's a great holiday

This boat is BIG!!! However, if you are looking for a luxury cruiser, this is not for you. It is clean, tidy, but 21 years old therefore a little tatty round the edges. Everything worked perfectly, but when it rains heavily there are some leaks, but nothing too bad (except when it rains heavily when chugging along quite a lot of water drips in around the join of the roof and windscreen, not a problem when moored cos you have the tarpaulin to clip over). The front cabin is bigger than it looks on the photo and is nicely away from the other cabins. The second double looks small cos it is. The foot end of the bed actually goes under the back of the saloon which gives enough length. The twin room has two bunks at right angles to each other and is fine. The little single is little!!! But should be fine. As you can see from the photo the pillow spills over the edge so the bed is narrow. The bed is half under the edge of the boat (where the walkway is)and there is only a small gap from bed to door. If the person using it does not like enclosed spaces or is a tad chunky you might have a problem. However, I am 6' 2" tall, slim and the bed was comfortably long enough for me. The best thing about this boat is its size and the space you get. However any more than about 4 - 5 people wanting to watch telly at the same time might have a problem as it is set into the saloon wall at a low angle. The big well at the back is great for sitting out and the roof is fine for sunbathing. This boat would comfortably take 7 adults (tho make sure you pumpout the toilets every few days). NB: Air Draft with everything down 6' 10"
