Best Boats on the Norfolk Broads

 
Want a sneak preview of the best boats for 2022 are going to be (well the best boats on the Norfolk Broads) …..
 
We’re not quite sure yet – but we do know that there will be at least two new boats for the 2022 season
 

Brinks Tempo 6

 
Brinks Tempo 6 is currently in build, and may even be on hire during 2021
 

Below you can see a full spec of the Brinks Tempo class and a video walkthrough of the 2019 Tempo.

 
We love this boat design, for all the reasons outlined in the spec, and a few more of its less tangible arrangements
 
  • The outside sofas – great for catching some rays, or watching the stars at night
  • The little hatch above the sofa enables you to pass a cuppa (or a beer) up top from the saloon. Many boats add stairs there. but the hatch offers the same facility and more seating downstairs.
  • The bathing platform at the back of the boat. Should you bring your paddleboard with you (or hire one of ours) this makes getting on and off the boat much easier. Please remember to turn the engine off first though!
  • I’d always bag the back cabin. It’s got a separate shower and loo, which means you don’t need to hide the loo roll when you have a shower. Not a given on most boats
  • The little toe hold in the side of the boat makes getting on and off that bit easier even when the tide is high.
  • Best of all are the lithium batteries. This serious piece of kit means you don’t need to plug into electricity or keep the engine running at night. Moor up where you please. Provided you’ve run the engine for 3 or 4 hours a day you will have electrics, hot water and lighting wherever you are

The Brinks Mystery

 
Well, we’ve built new moulds for a 46ft boat, and the first hull is in the boatshed but that’s all Matthew will tell me for now
 
Our guess is, it will sleep 8, have tinted windows to improve privacy
it may have a fridge on the top deck?
