Hired a day boat on saturday from George Smith & Sons, they are based on the rhond in wroxham.
The boat a 24ft Sheerline with all facilities was superb and the owner Duncan greeted us very warmly and certainly made us feel very welcome. I was very impressed with the overall service and the standard of the boat. I would highly recommend the yard and I will certainly be returning in the future.
I wholehearted agree - we use them every year - not the cheapest, but far more comfy than the Loynes type launches - stove and loo - the important thing and can be made relatively secure when you leave the boat
As all regulars on the forum will know, I'm a rag and stick kind of person. However, a few years ago my younger son and I found ourselves in Norfolk in January with a desire to get on the river for a few hours. Nobody has a sailing boat for hire in January, so we went to George Smith. They absolutely could no be faulted on either quality of craft or quality of service. Whereas I can never see myself being converted to a stinky, for half a day in January it was a wonderful way to get afloat.
