Welcome to the forum!

Bridgecraft are not a yard which get that much exposure on here - But I think those that have experienced them suggest that their boats are well cared for and that the service is good.

From my own observations, I'd say that their boats always look clean and shiny in the middle of the season (ie when I normally see them) which is definitely a good thing. I have often thought about hiring one of the Windsor Bridges or Tamar Bridge.

I have never hired an AF lowliner, but I suspect you'll find the upper steering position very useful and in june will probably spend much of your time up there.

As for the Alpha.. I think Westminster Bridge was the subject of a thread a while back, so it might be worth doing a search on the name using 'any time' as the time range...

Above all - enjoy yourselves!

Cheers

John

Dear d.p.gumby as I agree with Jonzo that Bridgecraft is one of the very few good Boat Yards that are left on the Norfolk Broads that I do know of will give a good service. As I've got a very good one that I go to has got a very good reputation so think on as you only got Nine more Months to go.

D.P

If you go to the links at the bottom of the page and choose Hireboat Info.  Then do a search on Westminster Bridge you will find the interior pics that we took of her in 2006.

We hired Westminster Bridge 1 for 2 weeks and I think that they will have fixed her by now (see separate thread).  Quite a roomy boat although the two centre cabins could be a bit cramped I think (didn't bother me as we had the for'd roooomy cabin).  The bow thruster makes her quite easy to handle for her size.  Had no trouble getting her under Wroxham bridge.

Saw her about 2 weeks ago down at Wroxham with a big area of filler on her stern, can't blame that one on me!!

All right so what is the technical name, sharp end or pointy end?

Alright can't help you with westminster bridge but I have forth bridge booked for next year and have see in quite a few times both of them and they always look great. Depends which of the forth bridges you hire number 1 was built by harvey eastwood and is quite decent inside but isn't finished off as nice as number 2 which is more varnished wood inside than the plasticy sort of finish of number if thats the right word to use. Hope that's some sort of help. Also if you look on the hire boat section there's a few pictures and if you type in the search you'll find a few threads about this boat.
