"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."
