Our boat is a Hampton Safari which we puchased in march 2008. During 2007 she had a major refurbishment by Peter Simpson, i am told a respected Norfolk boat builder.
She is named "Sunchaser".(not Sunchasher, if this can be altered it would be appreciated)
Reg. Y29

She was built in 1970 and was fitted out and put on the hire fleet of Maidencraft in the name of "Miss Memory".
I have attached a page from a Hoseasons catalogue, date unknown.
Did any member holiday on her?

I think the Hampton Safari safari is a great broads boat.
And would recommend it to anybody.
All one level, good vision up front, easy for the bridges and a good hospitality area.
I treat ours like the original mini i had in the 60s,
adding bits to give it your own identity.

Malcolm,

Bit of background history coming up for you.
My uncle bought this boat from Maidencraft when it was sold from their hire fleet, I think in the early late 80's/early 90's. He kept it at Beccles Yacht station on the council's private moorings for many years, selling it in about 1999. Can't be more precise on dates unfortunately. After he sold it, I met a chap on the river, who was Mr.Jenner of Jenners of Thorpe, a long established boatyard. He told me that he had been keeping his eye on Y29, as it was bought from Hamptons as a bare hull/superstructure, and had been fitted out by Jenners. He was sure that, although Y29 was not the first from the mould, it was actually the first to hit the water as a completely finished vessel.
As a family we had many a happy time on Miss Memory, in the time uncle had her, she was only used for day trips. As I recall, she really needed more time and attention lavished on her than uncle was capable of giving, and would have benefitted from a complete re-fit, in truth.

Where will she be kept, it would be good to see her again? I,ll keep my eye out for you on my travels. Good cruising.

Regards, Ray.

Ray, Thank you very much for your info, which has got me delvin into the archives.
You are telling me that "Miss Memory" was built by "Jenners of Thorpe".
The info that i have been given with the boat is that it was built by "Maidencraft", who's right?

The first real motorcruisers as we know them were built by "Jenners of Thorpe" around 1912.
     ( from "Broadland Memories)

Bill and Jack Jenner went to war.
They returned from war to find Broadland sharing Britain's slump(sounds familiar)and the family boat building and hire company had been sold off, and was soon to disappear.
Bill and brother Jack worked, scrimped and saved until the early 60's when they were able to establish their new company, "Maidencraft" which continued until 1988.
(from Yare Sailing Club)

Ray shall we call that 50/50.

Miss Memory was owned 1995-03 by a Mr. Peters of Beccles, was this your uncle , if not it must have been the person he sold it to.

We are moored at Waveney River Centre.
If you see us at any time come aboard for a drink.

MANY THANKS
MALCOLM

Hi Malcolm,

If you check the database you will see that Maindencraft was known as Jenner Bros until 1969, hence that will be the link to the other Jenner's yard and means she probably was built by Jenners, although not necessarily the yard Ray is referring to - I've no idea what the family link was - Carol on Broadland Memories might know.

According to my records, she was originally called Miss Merrymaid, being renamed Miss Memory around 1990 and being sold into private ownership in 1994
