Neil, great pics showing the build process of a new boat, although looking at the latest picture (1/4/08), have to wonder if it will be ready for first weeks hire on 11/4/08.

I've just booked Fair Countess for a week in August - anyone got any comments on the boat/piccys?

G'Day Bob

My wife and I have been on Fair Countess twice both for 11 night breaks, would easily book with Faircraft again.
Very nice boat, clean, and well maintained. Extremly comfortable, especially when there are only two of you on board. Sorry no photo's

This year we have booked Swan Regal for 2 weeks also in August



Happy Boating from

Dave,

Yep I agree Faircraft are a great boatyard, I've hired Fair Regal on a number of occasions in recent years and always found the boats immaculate and the staff extremely helpful.

Can you remember if Countess had a bow thruster? Seems odd that a realitively new 40 footer doesn't have one - or maybe I've just been spoilt in the past Playful .  Also did you get under Wroxham bridge towards Coltishall? I've had problems in recent years even with boats with a modest air-draft (e.g. 7'4")

Cheers

Bob

That's useful feedback Bob, especially as I've long fancied Fair Regal. It's the layout that appeals, particularly the island double & the separate single cabins. We had Royall Stuart last year which is a similar layout except a large twin cabin in the rear.

No Bow thruster on Fair Countess.
With the large boats from Faircraft they offer a free pilot service through Wroxhan bridge. From memory, in their hirers manual, they advise you must use one of their pilots to go through the bridge. We used them no problem, managed to get prime spot at Coltisall right in front of the pub

I see that there's another picture gone up today - She's still not finished! I don't think I'd want to be this weekend's guinea pigs.. I mean hirers.

Not a bad looking boat though from the shots I've seen.

What a nice touch to the companies site this is, look forward to seeing her on the water next week.

Although small the exterior looks better than the artists impression hinted towards which looked like it may have been an ugly duckling I thought....

Always nice to see another type of new design added
