Hi Andrew - have a look at my avator and you will see another!!!!

Royall Oak is one of the pair of Aquafibre Diamond 35s that were part of the Sabena fleet hiring under the name of White Diamond.

Royalls bought one and the other passed into private ownership. I think they are a fantastic boat and if you check Craigs data base you will see the extent of the class. Not especially numerous but still some lovely examples as some went straight into private ownership. Even the ex hires scrub up well although the hulls, as do all plastic hulls, do take a hammering.

Perfect boat for the Broads - only 6' 7" airdraft and oodles of room Smile

All I am looking for is some company - no Roy not you - you are the wrong shape sorry!!!!

Hi Marshman and Steve & Vicky. Marshman that is very interesting to know now about theses crafts can you tell me how many were built in that time and what year they were built? Thanks Steve & Vicky for that link as to When Sabene Marine sold them Two off as to the one of them going to the Royall's it did have a Re con Engine so why did they did do that? Now I do know Nigel & Sara Royall are now re fitting it out completely even with a New Engine as Nigel did tell me what New Engine they are putting but my Brian did not register what type of Engine lol.So I a thank you for your help and reply.
Andrew.

Hi Everyone

It's a great style of boat, and perfect for two couples with an en-suite each and the saloon between to give you a bit more privacy.  For this reason I was a bit perplexed why Royall's removed the option of converting the forward cabin into a second double, a bad decision in my opinion.  No doubt it probably will let quite well though as with all Royall craft, but for this reason it probably now cant be on my hire list, though Summercraft run superb examples that can include 2 doubles so still a good option if 2 doubles are needed

I like this thread - I wonder why!!!!

The other 35 that came from Sabenas was refitted out at Ferry and re engined too I think.

Solita (T512) was the first built and put by Brooms onto their hire fleet. She only did 5years I think before Brooms started to run the fleet down in 1999 and we took her on.

Dans database shows just 21 but one has gone down to the Thames and I know of at least one other down there. I take on board Dans comment about a double up forward but that cabin suffers in that the bunks/bed have to be higher because of the bow and some think them a little short - my son for one!!!

However in my view a great boat and one which will continue to grow on me for some time yet.
