Don't think I'll win the highest total number prize but maybe I can be unique in saying I've never been with the same yard twice! This is not down to not wanting to return to the yards I've been with (although Alphacraft comes the closest to this), just that we've picked the best boat for our needs at the time:

Norfolk Broads Yachting Company (the previous version at Wroxham)
Aston Boats (Loddon)
Mistral Craft
Hearts
Barnes Brinkcraft
Alpha Craft
Herbert Woods
Bees Boats
Pacific Cruisers
Silverline

This year we've booked with Richardsons for the first time so my record continues!

Simon I do hope you don't mind me mentioning it, but the majority of the yards you list appear to have either departed the scene or, changed hands probably since you booked. You are not some doomsday machine are you? Scared

I could have sworn the book said turn right at the yellow marker at Yarmouth. I think that was coming the other way! Bill...

I've just seen the post about the Aston you turned into a convertible Jim......

Can I suggest a boatyard called Line Azzurio?


Sorry, I had vowed not to make comment on that subject .....
