Brian and Jill Thwaites bought Barnes Brinkcraft in the 1970's and built up the business, joined in the late eighties by sons Daniel & Matthew.  Sadly Brian died in 1992 but the family business is still thriving with Daniel and Matthew very much at the helm and Jill who still keeps her on eye on everything!  They now have a superb range of 35 different types of cruisers along with three very different types of self catering holiday lodges and cottages. Barnes Brinkcraft boatyard is situated in the centre of Wroxham, which has always been classed as the the 'Gateway' to the Broads and is a great starting point for any Broads adventure.
