Joined the forum today, having booked August holiday last night. Very excited. Have been coming to the broads on and off for the last 20 years. 1st time when I was about 6. They're will be 7 of us in total and we have hired Supermore from Barnes and brinks as best suited our cabin requirements. Anyone with any experience with this boat or boatyard would love to here your stories.

Hi Franzipan90 and welcome to the forum.

I joined the forum last year when we started boating with Barnes Brinkcraft.

Our experience with them was really good as everything from the booking, asking questions, boat handover and return was handled in a very professional and friendly manner by all members of staff.

The boat, Brinks Omega, was spotlessly clean and the little goodie bag of treats was a very unexpected surprise.

Happy boating !!!!

Sounds great, first time with Barnes and was a bit worried as had read some mixed reviews online, will be nice starting in wroxham as always a favourite place to visit. Do they tend to have a specific start time, have had different experiences when it comes to this. Found with Richardsons they are always earlier then planned bar the time they had to repair the roof. However silver line wouldn't even let us on the sight until 2pm they were even a bit funny about letting my grandad use the facilities despite the near 3 hour drive from Lincoln. Boats were in a lovely condition though!

Hi Franzipan90<

We arrived at the boatyard at around noon, booked in straight away with the very friendly staff and invited to leave our luggage securely with them so we could do a little shopping at the famous Roy's. We had arrived by train so this was a very kind gesture.

They had my mobile number so off we went and within 45 minutes they called to say the boat was nearly ready and we could take our luggage and board when we were ready.

This we did and at 13.30 a very knowledgeable guy called Warwick came and gave us about 30 minutes tuition until we were confident enough to start our cruise.

I'm not saying this will be possible at all times and I think they said on the booking etc that departures would be from 16.00 but hey ho our experience was really great.
