The MAIB have just posted their report following a full investigation. The report can be read on the MAIB website.

It does not bear thinking about.  I agree that there should be a safety rail at the back.  That boat's design was an accident waiting to happen as with all these designs that are wonderful on paper and yet in reality they are lethal.

My heart breaks for the family.

Very sad indeed, the thing that stood out to me and I still find it inexplicable was that the helm did not know the controls were set to  the lower position when they were sitting at the upper position  and they were unaware they could turn the engine off from the upper position.

I have to agree 100% with Hylander's input on this one.

I note these comments in the report:

"The United Kingdom Merchant Shipping
(Accident Reporting and Investigation)
Regulations 2012 – Regulation 5:
“The sole objective of the investigation of an accident under the Merchant Shipping (Accident
Reporting and Investigation) Regulations 2012 shall be the prevention of future accidents
through the ascertainment of its causes and circumstances. It shall not be the purpose of an
investigation to determine liability nor, except so far as is necessary to achieve its objective,
to apportion blame.”
NOTE
This report is not written with litigation in mind and, pursuant to Regulation 14(14) of
the Merchant Shipping (Accident Reporting and Investigation) Regulations 2012, shall be
inadmissible in any judicial proceedings whose purpose, or one of whose purposes is to
attribute or apportion liability or blame."

Just my opinion, I don't think that this will be the last that we hear of this one.

Have handrails subsequently been retro-fitted to boats of a similar design?

”It shall not be the purpose of an investigation to determine liability nor, except so far as is necessary to achieve its objective, to apportion blame.”

I have read the report and note that several of the criticisms are those that have been repeated time and again on forums and on social media platforms. It is only now that this tragedy has occurred that, hopefully, notice will be taken. I am desperately sorry for the family and their friends for their loss.

I always suspected that the report would be hard-hitting, but I never expected so many deficiencies to be revealed. I am absolutely appalled.

While it is not within the remit of the MAIB to apportion blame, it is very clear where it lies. Profit has been put before personal safety, and the Broads No-Authority has lived up to its name.


Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Very true. You only have to read the report to understand who was at fault. The thing I found most disturbing was looking at the stills from the CCTV. It was like the equivillent of watching a horror movie where you know what happens next.

My biggest criticism remains the design of some of these newer hire craft. High aft end where the helm has little chance of seeing crew who may be there, combined with narrow boarding platforms and no safety rails. It's something that goes through my mind every time I see one mooring up.

I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for the poor woman's family on board.

This is not working. Go to BBC East on I-Player, hope you find it.

‘The other place’ sensibly posted this link and locked the thread.

Unsurprisingly some of the usual armchair experts on here haven’t regarded the ‘expert findings’ of the MAIB report to be satisfactory and can’t wait to give their twopenneth and score a few points.
