Who built the 'Adventuring Light' style boat from Herbert Woods. I notice they only have the one left in hire for 2006. Certainly not the prettiest boat but i bet their very spacious and comfortable, make a great livaboard. Has anyone out their hired one?? Tom

Adventuring Light is an Aquafibre 38, so the Broom/Aquafibre concern built the shell, I assume Woods themselves fitted the boats out - I reckon there were 6 of them on the Broads, (plus one reregistered recently. There was also a 44 ft version originally known as Adventuress (8 of them)

Hi Jonny, welcome to the forum. It's good to have your input.

Your point about living aboard a boat has been covered on many threads here in the past so if you search through them you'll be sure to find several discussions.

The insurance on a boat is hard to compare with a house as household insurance varies so much depending on size of the house and type of cover. Boat insurance is not particularly expensive if you compare it to motor insrance though.

There are other costs to consider, mostly for moorings. There are very limited opportunities for liveaboard or "residential" moorings on the broads and it is something that the Broads Authority tend to discourage though there are a number of people living very happily afloat.

Regards

Paul

Hi Jonny, I live aboard an ex-Broads hireboat but sadly not on the Broads! I found insurance for our boat quite easy to obtain (provided you send them a valid safety certificate) and not too expensive. The only thing they will not cover for is stuff like jewellery etc. Even though we live aboard the policy is still called "private pleasurecraft" instead of houseboat. We use Navigators & General if that's any help.
I did notice the absence of liveaboard craft on the Broads and was quite astonished, but then again, when the season is underway it must be like being moored next to the boating equivalent of the M25! I have encountered snobbery from folks also who regard liveaboard boaters as dole-scrounging crusties and general ner-do-wells but there's a very broad spectrum of folk on the rivers and in marinas who run sucessful businesses and bring up their families etc.
If you decide to go for it do as much homework as you can beforehand with regards to river tax, safety ticket, where to moor and how much...also when shopping around for a quote, info about the make and builder of the craft and it's age will come in very handy. The less info you have could mean they won't insure the craft unless you have a survey done.
Good luck!

Jonny,

'Fraid I'm not local to the Broads - I live nearer to you in Stoke, so I don't know of any others for sale - the Waterside Marine boat is almost certainly Maid Josephine 667G (illustrated on the database), which returned from the Thames, hence the roof steering position - not ideal for the Broads. I notice the also have one of Kingerfisher/Line Azzuro Surveyors for sale
