  does anyone have any comments on this company
anyone hired from them
would like to hear anything about them.
they seem to be a much more personal type of yard a bit like castle craft
was in 96
i visited brundall just to put a deposit on silver scirocco for next year, and
was met by colin dye i think his name is.
any info or pics of this boat would be appreciated

  I've never hired from them but a friend of mine has and couldn't praise them enough.  She has said that she wouldn't go woth anyone else now.

Re photos, have you looked at their website?  Lots of still photos in the boating holiday section and if you go into the virtual tours bit in the gallery section there are several 360 degree views of different parts of the boat.

  G'Day Inky

We have booked Silver Solano for July next year, sister to Sirocco.

There have been a number of threads on the forum saying how good Silverline are.

I also think they won Hoseasons boatyard of the year 2009

As Charlie suggested have a look at the Silverline Marine website. Also use the hire boat info at the bottom of the page, you will see 2 very good write up's for this class of boat.
I think you will find we will both be very happy with our selection next year

  hi inky
we have have about 6 boats so far and pick silver minuet up on friday, and have wisper next june.
Colin Lesley and Rob are really friendly and the boats are ones you wish you owned.

  We are currently on Silver Eclipse. Boat is superb and the yard was
really helpful and friendly. I've never been greeted by name on
arrival at a boatyard before! I've seen quite a few of thier boats out
on the river during the week and they all look very well turned out. I
certainly wouldn't hesitate in recommending this company and will
definitely consider using them again.

  Ah Silver Eclipse we were the first ones on it it went on the water on tuesday and we got on saturday beautiful boat.

  Silverline have shown an awful lot of thought into their operation and it
really does work.

Boats are presented spotless inside and out. the livery is understated,
it does not shout "I'm a great boat at you" and the inventory is
extensive and of very good quality. The attention to detail is
incredible,an  example being the way the fender lines have been spliced
and knotted. it just looks so neat. Another is you are given an air cabin
crew style demonstration on how to wear your lifejacket. Amusing but
practical at the same time.

We have booked 'Silver Symphony' for next June. We wanted mid July
but all the two berth craft (except the aft cockpit Minuet's which are a
bit low on storage for a fortnight) are already booked, which speaks
volumes about the yard.

To sum up Silverline, they are professional, genuinely friendly and
exceptional value.

  Yes,  they always very smart and clean - I don't think I've ever seen one that wasn't.

  hi inky

i've done the silverline praise bit on here before, but hey ho

we hired solano a couple of years ago. i have looked at and been on many hire craft, but i still defy anybody to beat this one for a fab all rounder

we couldnt fault anything with the boat, the entire layout was superb, comfortable.  i just wish i could afford my own one.  the staff were friendly and couldnt do enough for us.  i dont think you
will be disappointed at all

enjoy your time on her


keep boating Smile   lis x

  Very pleased to read all the
positive comments about
Silverline, have booked Silver
Reflection for a week next August.
Will have to be good to better this
years Summercraft boat but
feeling very confident now!

  just a word of warning they have two dogs that demand stroking and petting but are just as friendly as all at Silverline. Once hired from hard to leave and risk another yard.


inky    -- Sep-11-2010 @ 3:47 PM
  hi pauljill
yes we met the dogs, one's a bit fiesty and scared the hell out of my 2
boys. (neither like dogs) we drove to norfolk from epsom surrey to put a
deposit on boat and to have a quick look round, oh yeah and then go see
me mum in lowestoft.
btw, thank you all for your response

pauljill    -- Sep-11-2010 @ 8:03 PM
  just ask lesley to introduce the dogs to the boys they really are friendly but not allowed on the boats not matter how you try to bribe them, if you have hired from silverline expect everything spick and span. just remember it is the blue building where you turn to reluctantly hand the boat back! this year we went past 6 times before we admitted it was not our boat.
Enjoy, ask them anything it really is not a problem.


inky    -- Sep-12-2010 @ 8:23 PM
  yes i know the feeling.
have been visiting the broads since 1960, i was only 2 and don't
remember anything about the early days first memory i have is of an ex
mtb called 'foynes' it had been converted into a house boat and was
moored on oulton broad from what i remember it was horrible, but
mum and dad spent most of their time in the lady of the lake while we
were tucked up in ............... steel bunks
next memory is of supreme wings from brundall, was 10 by then ugly
boat the screen sloped forward a bit like the back window of a ford
then we went through all the large brinks boats through the 70's and
early 80's. dont see any of them any more Frown
probably been on 40 odd boats in my time and as captain get the
same feeling when returning back to the yard
looking forward to next aug on silver sirocco.
