Hi All,

Normally I am posting for information on yachts. However, my wife is due in 4 weeks and we have decided four adults and an infant maybe a little cramped on a yacht.

Anyway, we have come to the conclusion that if we are going to try a cruiser we would like something reasonable size with a few modern luxuries. Both Countess and Commodore on the face of it seem to fit the bill.

Does anybody have any experience of either of these boats, we are leaning towards Countess at the minute as we understand it will pass under Potter and Wroxham. The only problem is I can’t find any interior shots of Countess.

Any experiences, help or advice would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Gareth

Its a shame nobody came back as a way of a reply Gareth ,perhaps that was down to the original post being between xmas and the new year .a very quiet for the forum and its very easy for posts to slip off the bottom of the page and get overlooked,anyway glad you are sorted ..have a good time

Thanks finny, I am trying not to take the lack of response too personally Wink  

Have not been on the forum myself for a while as we have just had our first child.

In the end we had a chat with Faircraft who advised us that we would be more comfortable with our new arrival on Commodore as it is a little more modern.

We are looking forward to experiencing a cruiser for the first time, but know doubt will be jealous when we see the sails going past!

I Have read a couple of reviews on Commodore, but if anyone does have any other experiences they would like to share that would be great

Cheers

Gareth

Welcome to the world of stinky boating Gareth, another convert to the cause.

First word of advice? Keep a sharp look out for those zig zagging flappy type things that never know where they are going, and have battering rams on the front specifically designed to take your windows out!

Gasp

above all, enjoy. Good to see another little broads boater in the making.

Bill, good thinking and have arranged for a Cot side, another job done, the wife will be pleased Smile

Paul, I am going to have to stay in a straight line now aren't I, how very boring. We normally hire tempest from Whelptons which has one of the best ramming bows in the business!

Our little girl will be following in my families tradition of early starts on the broads, think my sister was the earliest at 2 months and me 3 months.

Only a few months to wait now

Cheers

Gareth
