Just spent a week on Serene Gem 2 from Richardsons, although this boat is priced quite cheap, didn't expect it breaking down for first 4 mornings on the trot! Engineers were great but we lost over 6 hours holiday. Richardsons reimbursed us with an extra day but holiday was spoilt because due to unreliability of the boat, we had to moor up in either main towns or boat yards so as to get a signal on my mobile and for engineers to get to us...couldn't moor up in the quieter places overnight due to this. Have booked again for next year but not with Richardsons...going with Summercraft instead. Yours disappointed, Maverick58.

I have just returned from a Friday to Monday weekend break on Serene Gem 3. I was part of a group of three adults, one of whom was on crutches. The boat was reasonably well kept and had all the necessary cutlery, crockery and other items. There is not much space for three adults and I would avoid four at all costs. The boat is well sized though and a great price. The only piloting problem is that the rear of the boat cannot be seen from the front driving position due to the door layout. We enjoyed our time on her and would rent again. Its not luxury but has all the required basics and is great value for money.

Have just returned (June 2007) from four days on Serene Gem 1. We were very pleased with her. The interior had been updated in most places, was in tidy condition and was quite spacious throughout. We liked having a proper shower tray (as apposed to the more regular removable tray in the bathroom floor), the forward & aft well for easy access on and off when mooring and for sitting out on. The engine was slightly nosier than expected to say it is mounted at the very back of the boat but this was not a major intrusion, and the settee backrests were mounted too low and were therefore not the most comfortable for too long. These are only little things though - we had a great time and were very happy with her. In value for money terms I think this class is unbeatable - we would definately not hesitate to hire one again.
