Information and Features

Brinks Chorus is a bigger and more luxurious sister to our very popular Brinks Encore Plus Class. If you need to accommodate more people in a similar level of boating luxury, we suggest you look at our other top-of-the-range holiday boats, the Brinks Prelude or Brinks Tempo.

Brinks Chorus features you will love!

  • Reversing camera
  • Split sliding canopy
  • Electric mud-weight winch
  • 1 Queen ‘walkaround’ berth
  • Bathroom with full-size shower cubicle
  • Bow & Stern thruster
  • 240V power & 3 Pin sockets
  • French doors fore and aft
  • Bathing platform

This single-level vessel boasts a low air draft, twin sliding sunroofs, and French doors fore and aft. It also has wide walkways, bow and stern thrusters, a bathing platform, teak decks, and even a reversing camera.

Why are these features important? The low air draft means you can get under some lower bridges that taller boats can’t make. You also get a great close-up view of the river bank, making spotting the Norfolk Broads’ elusive wildlife just that bit easier. The twin sunroof helps you make the most of our British summer, a bit of a breeze, pull one side closed and still let the sun come in. Broad walkways and handrails make it easy to get safely from one end of the boat to the other. We designed the bathing platform to help you easily get off and on a paddle board or into a rowing boat. The bow and stern thrusters mean you can literally move this boat sideways, and the reversing camera adds another level of ease. 

Inside, you’ll find an aft cabin with abundant natural light, a queen-sized walkaround bed, and far more storage than you find on most boats. The kitchen is fitted with  Corian worktops and high-quality appliances, including an induction hob, combination oven and grill, full-size fridge, and double sinks.  

The bathroom has a full-size walk-in shower cubicle accessible from both the rear cabin and forward saloon. Brinks Chorus is ideal for families and couples. The saloon features a comfortable L-shaped seating area that converts into a double bed, a movable captain’s seat, and a small sofa in front, providing a more than ample seating area.  

Suppose you’ve hired a mid-range or elite fleet boat from Barnes Brinkcraft. In that case, you will be used to the improved electronics aboard our boats, and Brinks Chorus will not disappoint. She has 240v electrics in every cabin, solar panels, Bluetooth music systems, and LED lighting inside and out  (yes, you can find your way back to the boat quickly after dark). The boat’s lithium batteries will ensure you have plenty of power to run the boat day and night, including the warm air heating system. 

The teak and holly laminate flooring makes an excellent addition to this boat. It enhances the single-level flooring throughoutyou only need to step up if stepping off the boat.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you don’t need to have any experience or special licences to hire a Broads Cruiser. On arrival, we will give you a full demonstration of how to use, drive and moor the boat. You will also receive videos of how to handle a boat before you arrive.

We provide a manual (electronically and in hard copy onboard) to help you enjoy your holiday.

Our experienced crew will be happy to answer your questions before you leave the yard.

We would recommend at least one member of your crew have good mobility for moving about the deck and mooring.

On arrival at the boatyard, find yourself a temporary parking space outside reception.

A member of our team will direct you to your boat, getting your car as near as possible to the boat so you can unpack

Once you are ready, make your way back to reception with your car keys and paperwork for check-in.

We’ll book you in for your trial run at that point. We customise your tuition to suit your needs.

If the boat is not quite ready, we’ll take your mobile telephone number and contact you as soon as you can go onboard.

Boats will usually be available between 2 and 4 pm. We need them back at 9 am on your day of departure.
 
Some will be available earlier, but we can’t guarantee which boats will be ready early.
 
Each boat is
Pumped out (sewage removed from toilet tanks)
Filled up with fuel and water
Serviced by both the engineers and boat builders
Cleaned inside and out
Inspected by our head cleaner
 
We’re never quite sure what we will find when the boats return, which is why we don’t give you an exact pick-up time.
Yes, please give us a ring to let us know, and we’ll let you know where your boat is so you can go onboard when you arrive. We usually move the boat to just outside reception, so it’s easy to find.
 
In the morning, we will go through the check-in and trial run with you.
 
For safety reasons, you must not take the boat out of the yard until you have had a trial run.

Yes, by 9 am please, ready for our staff to get on board and sort her out for the next customers.
