Hi

Subject: Good news (i hope!)  

Just to let you know as from next week, we now have some more
premises in Wroxham. These new premises will mainly be used for
building the new 24ft weekender/day boats,  and hopefully building a
newly designed day boat  (Designer Mr John Moxham)

We can then start to upgrade the day boat fleet at Ludham Bridge
Boatyard, and hopefully may even sell one or two! (Thats if the
recession ever ends!)

In addition to this we are setting up a 'new' boat storage & DIY facility.
We will have space for nearly 300 decent sized boats, and in time
things like 240v power points, water etc will be installed near the
boats.

The site is gated, so boats, caravans & trailers etc will be safe, it also
has security cameras. (Extra cameras will be installed at a later date)

Storage agreements can be anything from weekly to annually.

Transport & crane requirements can be arranged by us, and boats will
normally be removed from the river at Ludham Bridge.    

The business is "Wroxham Boat & Caravan Storage" and I will mainly be
responsible for this.

Inside DIY storage is available, but only short term arrangements.

Unfortunately we will be slightly more expensive then other DIY yards
around the broads,  but this is mainly because Wroxham is central and
it has always had a slight premium, even with moorings etc. Rates &
property are general more expensive there.

Thank you for reading this and if any more information or prices are
required just PM me.

(Note - I have made a donation to the NBF as this information post
basically ended up as a advert!!)

Kindest Regards

Jason Hatch

YES!! When is the webcam you promised going live then?

Congratulations on the new yard, about time too.

300 boats??  Cool Indifference   Chuffin eck it must be some size of yard. What about transporting the larger size boats to the site? 'B.A' is a bit too large for your crane facilities at LBBy, how would you get them there and where from?

We need more info and photo's so we can spread the word will it be along the lines similar to Wayford boatyard?

Where is it exactly so we can visit / view?

You might need extra staff, I could do with a job / scene change methinks  Playful Wink

As Griff has mentioned, and for future reference, what would be the largest size craft that you will be able to lift at Ludham Bridge, and then transport to Wroxham for DIY ?

Congratulations Jason, you're certainly not letting the grass grow under your feet! Will George now be managing at Ludham?

Thank you! Its still going to be difficult but we will give it a go.

The workshop is over 5000sq ft, and its very high! The only restriction
at this moment is the main door we actually use as its only 11' 6" wide
however, we have other wider doors around the building (up to 16ft
wide) if required.

Abbey Transport can move most things & its a very easy & flat yard to
operate in. It will suit almost any boat, but the downside is the costs
with any transport with the larger boats (35ft plus) however,
adjustments on crane costs will be done accordingly, plus we will aim
to 'group' boats together.  

I will confirm some more details soon (over the weekend) but most
people will guess where it is! Smile

Good luck Jason with your new venture.
