Thank you for booking Prelude 1.


Welcome to your Barnes Brinkcraft Boating Holiday

Once you've checked through the office and boarded your boat we will give you a thorough handover to ensure you understand how simple and straightforward handling your boat is.

To help you, we have prepared these links. They provide you with a written reminder of your handover, plus quite a bit more detail about boating in the Broads National Park.  There will also be a paper copy of this information on board your boat.

If you do have a problem during your holiday please refer to this information first. If you can't find the answer, then please do not hesitate to telephone 01603 782625

On behalf of us all at Barnes Brinkcraft, we hope you have a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
