First off pacific themselves. Richard and fiona are fantastic and great people and so welcoming. After visiting most of the broads yards pacific is where I head too. I cannot fault them in any way.
Diamond is a stunning boat gets lots of positive comments off other boaters. She looks a fab. Inside its home from home. Very comfortable indeed lovely open plan layout massive space for a boat. Full size hob electric ignition on oven and hob. Immersion heater on shore power. Sockets in all rooms. Great size living space. Front and back toilets / showers plenty of room both bedrooms really comfy. Drives really well very responsive on steering. Split sliding roof great in the nice weather. Good visability.
The central driving position you soon realise its no issue as for reversing flick the roof back head out great vision or just look down through the boat. Mooring is a breeze with the bow thruster.
Diamond is a diamond. Ive already booked it again, its now my favourite pacific boat. Ive had the privilege of having it on a maiden voyage and its been an absolute joy.
Thank you all for your replies and Bob thanks very much the info you have provided. Your comments are most reassuring. I'm always concerned that we may be disappointed having been spoilt by such nice boats we have hired from Swancraft. Diamond sounds a great boat and I am now looking forward to boarding her. Also glad to know she is in safe hands. I intend sticking as close to my original planned route as poss. We will be staying North Frid to Sun then heading South for 3 days returning Thursday. I will be aboard Swan Rapture at the end of September when we will most likely remain North.
