It is normally only the most modern of Broads boats thst have radiator central heating. We do a lot of winter cruising on narrowboats and they normally always have radiators. These do keep the boat very warm and they also dry towels, etc. One of the problems with Broads boats is that there is often not a lot of wall space to fit radiators.

We also hired Suncharm end of March time but while it's ok we couldn't get warm like a air heater. We also forgot to turn the stat down during the day and a foil deflector to get more heat out helped.
Instant hot water for shower great.
I ended up paying more for fuel on return.

I've just fitted a water-based heater on Sunbird, but only had room for 1 radiator in the rear cabin. This works really well, the disadvantage being it doesn't provide instant heat like a hot-air system, the advantage being it carries on providing heat for a while after the boiler has shut down. Very nice for heating a towel, or nightwear!

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there,
then where is it?

I have to say that IMHO Broads hire cruisers still lack the necessities for out of season cruising, with radiators being an essential part of that.
I have never understood why yards on the Broads still insist on having fan heaters when 30 years ago on the canals it was commonplace to have airing cupboards and full central heating. I no longer study the brochures but I guess others do and I guess warm air heating on the canals is the exception and radiators the norm.

So why not on the Broads?
