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...

Can I suggest a boatyard called Line Azzurio?


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

Hello everyone,

I've been tracking this wonderful forum for some time and thought it was about time I signed up and made a contribution. (My long-suffering family have already nicknamed it "NorfolkBroadsSaddos.com" - ignore them).
No-one in this thread has explained why they like to keep switching yards. Well, a long, long time ago there were far more yards than there are today and even the smaller ones designed and built their own boats. There was a wonderful variety of craft on offer and the temptation to try something new meant that there was very little reason to stick with the same yard. These days most yards offer a selection of the same "standard" designs, so if you can find the boat you like from a yard you like, then there are good reasons for sticking with it. The (vanishingly small) number of yards who actually build new boats should be encouraged. I was saddened to see that the first boat to be added to the Faircraft fleet after Len Funnell retired was the "bought in" Fair Emperor (sorry, this is turning into a mini-rant - must get a grip).
Anyway, here is my list of yards used, which is well over-shadowed by previous posts. If the first 2 are unfamiliar, that's because they date from 1956 and 1958!

Redline (Potter Heigham) x1
H.A.Simpson (Wayford Bridge) x1
Alphacraft (Brundall) x1
Moores (old and new) x3
Rowancraft (Geldeston) x2
Poolcraft (Beccles) x1
Jack Powles x3
Brooms x3
Faircraft x5
Richardsons x1
Russells x1
Herbert Woods x1
Royalls x1

Hi Stephen

On the Faircraft Loynes point, its true the mould isn't produced by the firm, but are you aware they still fit the boats in their own group.  I saw Fair Emperor under build at Potter Heigham last year.

All the best

Dan
