Hi Eastern,

They both look brilliant boats but I think what would help me to decide would be how many doubles and singles required.
My own personal preference for layout is Commodore as not only does she have a twin cabin the same as Broadsman, Commodore has 2 good size double rooms both with walk around beds. The stern cabin on board Broadsman does not look so spacious and does not have a walk around bed.

Which ever you choose they both look superb. Cheers

Kind Regards
Alan...

thanks there is only 4 of us going - a couple and too adult kids - so we can have front and the kids have a room each. Was not sure is the extra air draft would cause more problems then the rooms layout gives us.?

thanks for all yopur help

Richardson's website lists Commodore Air Draft estimated as 8ft and  Broadsman Air Draft 6ft 9"

I think Broadsman should be generally fine for all bridges except depending on river levels Potter Heigham but this is the same for most boats. You could ring the Pilot before booking to check if this boat can ever go through. Tel: 07990 686097 or 01692 670460

I doubt if Commodore would go through Wroxham Bridge under normal conditions but you could check with the pilot Tel: 07775 297638.  

There are other bridges to bear in mind so you can find a bridge clearance chart that includes river level rise and fall on my website under the "Bridge Gaps" tab.

Hope this helps. Cheers

Kind Regards
