We are hoping to buy a new (secondhand) cruiser in the next month which will require a good going over mechanically and the hull/superstructure tidying etc.
It would be interesting to hear of recommended yards who are reasonable, competent and honest who we could trust with the initial work and ongoing maintenance and handholding etc. Some help finding some no frills moorings (32') would also be appreciated.
Thanks

Laurie

Hi - we Monica and Brian are based at Broadsedge and if you dont hang around, as filling up quickly there are spaces to be had.   We are a good crowd, we have such a laugh and everyone is helpful if you need a hand.   As for boatyards we have always used Moonfleet Marine and have been totally satisfied with everything they have done for us.

Hi Lawson44

If you are looking for the top end I can personally reccomend Sutton Staithe Boatyard, fair price and a good job, do not be put off if they cannot fit you in for a week or two it is a sign of a good boatyard.

Broadsedge looks a good bet for a mooring but be quick.

I have never done any business with moonfleet marine but I have only heard good things about them.

Boulters of Horning have a good reputation and even offer a riverside breakdown service simlar to the AA.

I am sure there are many other members with personal experiences good and bad

good luck with your purchase

THE WET STUFF SHOULD BE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BOAT!!

I'm with Hylander, we are also at Broadsedge and love the place even though Baz is the only other member we've met so far, we are in the new part and a week ago we were the only boat in that section, today there are five other boats there so you need to be quick, David the Manager also told us there are plans to put toilets and showers on the new section as soon as the planning permission gets sorted out, the only downside is that they don't let outside contractors on site to do work on your boat, but I've heard nothing but good things about Moonfleet,

I'm Not CRAZY, my view on reality is just different to YOURS,,,

Hiya Lawson 44
I'm at Broadsedge, and love it. Any repairs etc to the boat that I can't do for whatever reason, I leave to Moonfleet ( Phil or Toby)and so far, cannot fault them. I  have in fact given them a spare set of keys to the boat, so if they need it at all, they just come down river a few hundred yards, and collect it, with Dave's permission of course.
