Sailing Holidays on the Norfolk Broads

Sailing Holidays

Available for Sailing Holidays. Our Fleet of historic 1930s traditional wooden sailing yachts have no engines onboard so are eco-friendly and offer the experienced sailor a sail second to none. The Hunter Family built our yachts specifically for the Norfolk Broads over 80 years ago and boast a compliment of five 2 berths, five 3 berths and four 4 berth boats.

Cabin Yachts

Although our cabin yachts have no engines they do have self-tacking jibs, making them a little easier to handle. We even have seasoned sailors who take our Hustler Class out single handedly! There are no engines onboard so your engine is a quant for any times you may find yourself becalmed.

Day Boats

For hire periods of a day, or up to full weeks, we have our open boats known as Half-Deckers (day boats), from single sail balanced lugs to our Gunter rigged mainsail and jib boats.
