Evenin all,
Me an the wife to be in (3weeks 5days) are on the broads on the mentioned boat in late september, we know the boat is a tall one for want of the correct term "air draft"??? we know it will not pass under potter heigham wroxham bridges, but as we are not sure where the rivers will take us yet  is there any advice to which other bridges we should be wary of EG in need of passin under on low water, by the way we aint sure how much air draft??? the particular boat has, we fancy wayford bridge but have beed assured there are moorings before it an a nice fella on here has offered us a mooring in a boat yard incase the broads authority one's are full, shame tho" fancied takin a look at dilham too,
any help would be gratefuuly received,
Cheers Nollock

I've just concluded the 7 videos and boat review of this very boat - Royale 1.

You can watch the whole series - just click here:

As for airdraft it is 8ft 6" - you can get under Ludham with 8ft 3" but your not be able to get under Wayford Bridge - if you go south St. Olaves Bridge - be careful at as you probably won;t get under at high water.

Also your find it loves to drink fuel.  I used 116 litres in 7 days - so budget for using more than your £100 fuel deposit.
