Hello Toni1966,

Welcome to the forum.

At the bottom of the page you will see the Hireboat information section.
Go into there and search on the boat name or the boatyard/hire company.

Regards
Alan

Toni hi,

I have never used the boatyard as to be honest I didn't know it existed.

Bel Air looks a much more superior boat than Duet 2.  She looks great in the photos.  Walk around bed is great, easy to get in and out and make it up.  Bathroom looks lovely with a nice bath. Great no restricted space and getting stuck to shower curtains.

I would be very interested to know what you think of Bel Air should you hire it.  I would certainly consider hiring it myself.

Kind Regards
Alan...

I think Bel-air was the first boat we hired on the Broads, about 10 years ago.  At the time it was owned by Sabena Marine in Wroxham (no longer hiring).  I do remember that it was comfortable but dated.  It's a relatively old boat, but it looks to have had a bit of a makeover since we hired it and some of the older boats are still the best.  The front well was spacious for sitting out. Hope this helps.  I would be interested to know what it's like now, if you choose to hire it.

Do they list their prices?  I can't see one on the web site.

Are they based on the main river or under the Railway bridge off the main river?

Kind Regards

We hired Bel Air from Sabena 6 years ago and at the time it was a very comfortable boat. The small table in the front well was a great idea and very useful. The only negative I would give is the fresh water capacity.....if you use the whirlpool bath make sure you are close to a water pipe to top up again.
