I agree with Sheque1, the wording is FOR not FROM 2017. Add in the FACT that they have planning permission to demolish the old managers chalet on site and rebuild it as a holiday let and I would think they are moving hire boat operations for one year rather than try and operate from a building site. Of more concern might be their plans for Horning   Gasp

Happy to support the honest and reliable pubs and businesses of The Norfolk Broads.

Don't know for sure sure but think they are are finishing operations at the end of they year. Mick the manager is retiring. What a shame great yard and great staff. Where on earth are Richadsons going to moor their boats? Leaving the boat shed now is a nightmare. Another good yard gone. We used them for over twenty years before we bought our own.Really sorry to see them go.Wonder what will happen to all those moorings?

I've been saying for years that it should be a dual carriageway.

Before we all panic in the context of the number of boats already at Stalham Private and Richos and the different change over days how much difference is this really going to make in practise, not a lot I would suggest, I could be wrong but I believe some of the Horizon boats already operate out of Stalham, lets all wait and see before we start changing underwear.

I am sure Richardson`s have thought this through before making the decision, like a couple of other large yards that have diversified I don`t see them making the decision lightly without taking everything into account.

Cynical I may be but, I am willing to bet that profits and land value came before customer satisfaction in their decision to switch bases with possible chaos on change-over days being given hardly a passing thought.
Accountants, not customer service managers run companies.

I have asked this elsewhere without response. I am sure I read somewhere a while ago that Richardsons were planning a base on the southern rivers, possibly in the Brundall area. Anyone else recall this?

we hope that this will be for the 2017 season only we went from there for the first time in April and going again from there in October were very impressed by all the staff and condition of the boats it will be a shame if RICHARDSONS CLOSE IT FOR GOOD. Wehave been going from Stalham for many years and find everything there really good but it will be crowded if Horizon do shut down and certainly THE Ant will be very busy in peak season be  lots of boats queing to get under Ludham bridge .

We hired a boat from Acle in May and found all the staff very polite and welcoming.
For us it is a 'best position' boatyard as it allowed us to cruise north and cover a logical pattern - Bure to Wroxham, then Ant to Stalham.
We gave the river Thurne a miss owing to the sailing regatta.
