The Captains Log – Brinks Omega

Hear first hand what one of our customers thought of his trip aboard ‘Brinks Omega‘, a 7 day account of his holiday on the Norfolk Broads.


Brinks Omega is a 4* boat.  It has a very spacious aft cockpit area, ideal for relaxing in the sunshine or a perfect place to sit and fish. Patio doors lead into the saloon area which is very light and airy, the comfortable ‘L’ shaped sofa converts into a double berth if required. Moving forward in the boat you have the galley area to starboard and the toilet/shower to port and a twin ‘V’ berth cabin in the bow.
