Silver Star Cruisers, always thought that that was the name of a boat that was hired out by Top-Craft.

Thank you for replies . I am thinking that maybe topcraft had one of their boats with Helmsman and so folk would think it was another yard , they gave the boat name as the yard name . I need to research further . There is a pennant design for this yard . I have many old Blake's and hoseasons brochures and am looking for helmsman ( if there is such a thing)

If anyone is interested , so far I have found 238 boatyards dating from 1947 to 2000.

Many thanks
Maggie xx

I worked at Fowlers Boatsyard on Oulton Broad at that time and knew Jimmy Topliss well enough to call him a friend. I also knew all the yards around the Broad at that time and whilst I am suitably doddery in my declining years I do remember the boat but I don't remember the yard as anything other than Topcraft. That said, Jimmy might have used the Silver Star name in the first year or so of hiring before he had a yard, mid to late 1960s. Like one or two others he hired a boat out from Oulton Broad Yacht Station using Bradbeers as his agent.

Yes , I have the Bradbeers pennant , red whale . But any idea who Helmsman were , their logo was a ship  wheel . They traded in the 1970's as far as I know .

I keep coming to a dead end but they did advertise 20 + yards on their books .


Many thanks

Well forum came up trumps . Helmsman started up when bradbeers closed . The yards that didnt transfer to Blake's and hoseasons joined Helmsman . But helmsman only lasted 2 or 3 yrs .

They had about 20 very small yards on their books , some with only one or two boats .

Now I just have to find the pennant colours .

Stay safe

Helmsman was very short-lived, pretty sure that it was based in Lowestoft but don't take that as gospel.
