LIGHTNING is a 43ft 7 berth cruiser and is very well known on the Norfolk Broads. The syndicate has been running since 2008. LIGHTNING is shared by a group of fastidious owners, maintained to a very high standard and kept at her home mooring at Broom Boats in Brundall, Norfolk NR13 5PX. This is a JOINT OWNERSHIP arrangement and not a commercial or profit making operation in any way whatsoever. The syndicate is self managed via two elected officers - a Chairman and a Treasurer and all members meet annually at an AGM to discuss any future investments in our lovely boat.
Lightning is dual steer (inside and flying bridge - where there are seats for four people). When steering from inside there is a split opening canopy so you can either steer or dine with the canopy right back or have either side open individually.
Lightning is fitted with a motorized mud weight and bow thrusters for ease of handling.
Over the last few years LIGHTNING has been subject to a number of upgrades. New engine, gearbox, new fridge, LED lighting, and upgraded electrics now make her arguably the fastest and technically most up to date in her class.
Lightning is lifted out each January and spends 2 weeks in a boatshed at Brooms having her hull and superstructure cleaned and polished and any winter maintenance work done.
Holiday allocations are by a rotation system where your four weeks are 12 to 13 weeks apart and you know which weeks you are allocated for years ahead giving you plenty of time to arrange swaps etc.
Duvets and pillows are aboard and you bring your own linen. You are responsible for cleaning the boat at the end of your holiday but there is a valet service available for the interior at a fee. Parking is close to the boat.
Due to health reasons there is an 8% share available which will entitle you at least one week in each of the seasons Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. The all up costs are around £1300 per year for your four week allocation and this is a bargain when compared with hiring a similar boat for one week in the High Season.
As an example; the weeks so far allocated to this share are below, along with hire charges for a comparative boat (Jasmine Emblem) from Horning Ferry Marina:
23/2/2019 (price not available but would be at least £700)
18/5/2019 (min £1688) No price quoted at this time.
The share is priced at £7,500 because as you can see the next five weeks allocated would cost you £7,000 plus any collision waiver fee the hire company charges.
The only extra costs you have are fuel and pumpouts. You would have to pay for the fuel on a hire boat anyway and as we get a small discount on our fuel this helps cut down the cost of your pumpouts.
LIGHTNING is on the rivers for around 40 weeks a year so if you are on the Norfolk Broads then there is a good chance you will see her. All our members are friendly people who will gladly show you around our lovely boat so all you need to do is ask!
