A shame if they are closing, but there has been a rumour before. We hired Grecian Girl in 2018, but noticed that it had been sold this year,along with another boat. Definately a nice place to hire from.

They don't appear to have invested in any new boats for some time now so it's been on the cards, shame really...

Looking on their Facebook page from last week they were getting ready to prepare the boats for the 2020 season. Also their  boats are available on the Hoseasons site for 2020 so I hope the rumours  are wrong.

It is true, we moor there privately. The hire boats are being sold and Sue is going to run the yard as a private marina.

Sorry I got that completely  wrong I read the original post and somehow got Bridgecraft into my head. Still a great shame the Summercraft boats always look to be well maintained.

Hi All
Old Parges very first holiday on the Broads was on Golden Girl from Summer Craft a wooden craft. Twas me old mum that took me. A wonderful holiday I piloted all the way so exiting for a youngster. "WOW have never forgotten it MUM" God rest your sole.
Thank you Summer Craft.
Kindest Regards
Marge and Parge

As a big fan of Summercraft and having hired from them over a number of years, having spoken to Sue and with her permission, I can confirm that they will no longer offer boats for hire and they will convert their yard to a private marina. However, they will continue with their very successful holiday lodges and in fact are looking to increase the number of cottages that they offer for let. Having stayed in one of their present lodges, I can confirm that they are very good value for money and have the quality that one always associates with Summercraft. I wish them all the best for the future.


Mike
