Motor Cruiser Star Glory 2 in 1967

In 1967 John Turner took two cruising holidays on the Norfolk Broads, the first being in July on T264 “Star Glory II” from Jack Powles & Co. Of Wroxham which is seen here moored in Fleet Dyke at South Walsham. The 29ft centre cockpit Star Glory class slept three with two single berths in the fore cabin and a single settee berth in the aft saloon. The original hire invoice for this holiday shows that the hire fee for two weeks was £92 15s with additional charges of  £3 18s 11d for diesel, £1 6d for oil and £1 10s for the garaging of the family car. A copy of that invoice can be found within the Boats & Boatyards category of the Paper & Ephemera section of the archive.

Loch Shiel 1967

In October 1967, John returned for another holiday on the Broads, this time on T309 “Loch Shiel” from J.Loynes and Sons of Wroxham. This quirky looking 2 berth cruiser was one of the four “Loch Invar” class of motor cruisers which were 26ft in length. Hiring in October meant that the boat could be hired for a total cost of just £20 18s for a week as this was classed as being the “Bonus” rate period in Blakes 1967 brochure. During the peak weeks of the summer months that cost doubled to just over £40 per week.
