The boat was lovely, stylish, and clean, however, the back French doors are very narrow and we caught ourselves on the handle frequently. It also has a couple of steps up to the lounge area and then down to the bedroom which were also quite big steps and this had us worn out by the end of the week. Our little dog came with us and he enjoyed it, but I am glad that we had bought him a life jacket as although we didn't need it, it gave us peace of mind and it provided a useful handle for getting him on and off the boat. We had a fantastic welcome from all the pubs we ate in every day and an excellent standard of food and they welcomed our little dog as well. Just one note of caution, the central heating on the boat didn't come on one morning and my husband had come back to bed with a cup of tea to wait for the boat to warm up. Fortunately we didn't fall back to sleep as we noticed smoke at the other end of the boat. My husband went and checked the heating controls which had tripped out and he made sure it was turned off but smoke continued to come in the boat. We quickly got dressed, ready to get off. At 8am when the yard was open we called and a guy came out within about 30 mins and replaced the motor I think it was. They do say not to go to bed and leave the heating on and given our experience I would say that this should be made a stronger message as if we had fallen asleep and the boat continued to fill with smoke we might never have woken up! I would also say that I was surprised that no smoke alarm went off and I cant even remember there being any.

Very nice clean and comfortable cruiser,didn't want to take it back at the end of the week,brilliant holiday loved it sat up on top ,lots more to see than you do on the lower type boats,Very nice and easy to handle, I think it would be a little cramped with four adults but would be ok with two adults and two small children,one tip i can give is that it uses a little more desiel than say Swan Rapture or Swan Reflection those type of boats.but don't let that put you off just try it, See you next year Swancraft.

The boat is lovely and luxurious, the two steering positions are great, we mainly used the top one and you can see everywhere from there. The handling is amazing and the bow thrusters are a God send! Little touches like a good quality roll of toilet roll, mini toilettries and a cloth and tea towel made us feel welcome. The tutorial was great and concise and the folder of information really helped. The jacuzzi bath was wonderful, such a treat for the week. This is the best boat we have had and would definitely choose it again.

.Good for a couple with 1 or 2 young children and the whirlpool bath is a win.

Be aware that all boatyards on the Broads charge in excess of the road price for diesel which is not what you may expect. At a time when road diesel was between £1.30 and £1.35 dependant on location most yards charged £1.35 and Swancraft charged £1.40 per litre. Although the heating on the boats is generally dependant on the use of diesel fuel no-one seems to take a 60:40 split into account.

I think comfort and cleanliness question should be two questions !Comfort of boat we did not like due to design of boat , we have holidayed on many of this type of craft but did not like layout of this one ! Cleanliness excellent ! I think Swancraft are probably the best turned out craft on broads

Plenty of storage but might be crowded with 4 people on board. Make sure you bring towels.

The boatyard owner was the most rude and arrogant individual ! We had a fanastic time on the broads, which was only spoilt by having to deal with a company like sawncraft, we would never use them again. If your planning a hoiliday to the broads pick carefully.
