For those of you who may be looking to hire something a little different, with a good amount of space and versatile sleeping arrangements then you may like Brinks Jazz.  You can watch the full video review here.

Brinks Jazz is a small boat at 29ft long but inside it feels far larger - thanks in part to the use of the full width of the boat (which conversely means very little in the way of side decks outside).  Light laminates keep things from feeling too claustrophobic and mean light is reflected well but wooden accents keep things from feeling clinical.

Design and built by porter & Haylet in the 1990's this class combines a forward well and typical forward steer characteristics but adds an extra steering position on the top complete with seating for three and a large area for sun bathing.   The boat has a nice separate shower compartment, and the well thought out galley complete with full size fridge, microwave and domestic sized gas cooker mean your not be left wanting if you cook aboard.

Plenty of storage and comfortable sleeping cabin in the rear of the boat finish off this cruiser as one that feels a very comfortable space to spend a few days even if externally she may be the 'ugly duck' as far as other boats go You might also consider Clarion  an identical boat but let from Richardson's boatyard in Stalham.

These boats were very popular on the French Waterways, especially the Midi/Etang de Thau area which is where I bet these started out quite a few moons ago.

Hired this very boat a few years back...really enjoyed it as a couple and found it very easy to use and to moor. The dual steering positions were a big benefit for me.

I'm not a huge fan of Brinks as a yard but this was a good deal for a short break.

Is this the first installment of another Captain's Blog?

Sorry to have to say I was ‘off duty’ and just had time to film the review, as otherwise was having a jolly good time with friends so no Blog this time.

However... You may very well be getting your fixe soon, not only with the usual Captain’s Blog but something a little special coming up in July.  

As for Barnes Brinkcraft I’ve got to say I have seen a marked improvement since I first hired with them (when I had not long been a member of this forum) back in 2011.  Also points I have raised with boats I have hired with them have been addressed – yes they are more pricey than other yards but by taking advantage of offers cutting out the cost of taxi’s (you can walk to the yard from the station) it brings the overall cost down on a par with the likes of Ruchardson’s.

Brilliant video Robin.
Great for seeing exactly what a particular boat is like.  Shame the boat yards don't do this.

Well done!!!



Kind Regards
