Norfolk Broads Boat Hire Agency

300 boats for hire along with a wealth of information to assist the first time boater and regular Broads sailor.


Whether you are a first time hirer or a regular visitor to the Norfolk Broads, you will find everything you need here to book your ideal boating holiday. We offer around 300 boats for hire with start points located across the Broads, together with our own unique boat rating system to help you make an informed choice.

Our site contains masses of useful information including 12 suggested itineraries tailored to the skipper’s level of experience. You will find standard itineraries which should suit the majority, itineraries for those with younger family members who might become bored with the standard village, countryside and public house stops, itineraries for the less experienced which avoid Great Yarmouth with its fast flowing tides and have suggested moorings which should be easier to negotiate. Finally, we have itineraries which includes a passage through Great Yarmouth to visit both the Northern and Southern Broads and rivers.

Potter Heigham and Wroxham bridges are well known for their difficulty in passing under. We offer advice on how to navigate these and 13 other bridges of the Broads including the minimum headroom you will need when the tide is at its highest level.

Where to moor your boat and the local amenities available to you are addressed with 40 maps of the local towns and villages you are likely to come across on your journey.
