"Great service at Barnes Brinkcraft, Wroxham, great staff and a great Boat, will use this boat holiday company again"
- Alastair Fletcher
"Wonderful long weekend exploring the broads. The staff were so helpful and the boat was perfect for our needs."
- Michaela Wright
"Had a fantastic 7 days on phantom boat maybe an old boat but had everything we needed"
- Tina Stonestreet
"Just return from a lovely 2 weeks in Brinks Encore Plus 4. The boat was very clean and had all the mod cons, bedding and towels provided. This is a great little boat for 2 easy to handle and great to explore those hidden gems as it will pass under all bridges at suitable tide. Been boating in the Broads for many years first time just the two of us and the dog. Thank you Barnes feeling very relaxed already planning our next trip."
