you've chosen two notably different boat styles. The Swancraft and Ferry Marina options offer high level second steering options but will not pass under Potter Heigham or Wroxham Bridges. The Richardson's option does not have the high level steering but does offer better bridge clearance. So you need to decide which is more important, the high level steering or the bridge clearance. Work this out and your on the way to making your choice.

Our vote goes with Swancraft, a smashing boatyard.  We have not had either boat you mention out but have looked round them and they are lovely.  As pointed out think where you want tog go as this can be restricted if you can't fit under the bridge.

sorry folks i got mixed up i meant the broads belero from richarsons i like dual steering craft you see. but the belero is a little bit more expensive so iam going to try swancraft tomorrow if them two are booked then am going to give ferry marina a try and if not i will have to book broads belero.
