If you are considering your first Broads Boating Holiday please be assured that there is absolutely no need for previous experience in boat handling. Before you leave our boatyard a member of our friendly team will explain all the controls and the safety equipment on board your boat. He will then take you down the river to show you how to manoeuvre and to moor up.

Whilst on your holiday we are always at the end of the telephone if you need further advice. Often the phone call is all that it takes to reassure you, but we are always happy to arrange to meet you wherever you are on the Broads waterways at your convenience.

Throughout our brochure (you can request a brochure by clicking the following link) you will see that we have over 25 different styles of cruiser. These vary from boats all on one level, ideal for customers who are less mobile, to boats with the option of driving from both inside and out.

With you our customers in mind we have carefully fitted out and equipped our cruisers with all the comforts of home.  (Please see pages 10-11 within our holiday brochure for further details)

Whichever cruiser you choose you can be assured that it will offer fantastic views of the waterways and the surrounding beautiful countryside, allowing you the freedom to explore at your own pace. Choosing the right boat is the very start of your adventure…

If you are still not sure which cruiser would suit your individual needs? Then please call a member of our friendly reception team who will be only too happy to help steer you towards your perfect holiday on 01603 782207.

Norfolk Broads Direct Open Weekend: Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th April 2013

The British Marine Federation is launching a nationwide campaign to get people ‘On the Water’ during the weekend of the 27th & 28th April 2013.  The marine industry will be coming together to provide boating information and activities at venues all around the country.

There will be events, taster trips and briefings at open days at training centres, boatyards and marinas. Whether people are experienced boaters or complete novices this weekend will be a great opportunity for people to learn more about the joys and excitement of boating.  There will be a wealth of opportunities to get ‘On the Water’ either on the UK’s 7760 miles of coastline or on the nation’s network of inland rivers, canals and of course here in the Broads, Britain’s magical waterland.

Here at Norfolk Broads Direct in Wroxham we will be opening our boatyard for both days to showcase a selection of the hire cruisers from our premier Faircraft Loynes fleet. Our enthusiastic team will be on hand to show potential hirers around the different styles of boats available including all of the onboard facilities. Potential hirers will even have the opportunity to try the boat out ‘On the Water’, our experienced staff will give them tips and friendly advice in the skills of boat handling to ensure that they can get the maximum out of their chosen craft.

Norfolk Broads Direct Fair Admiral

A real head turner with outside dining area and sun-deck.

During the days we will be running a timetable of river trips to Salhouse Broad on the Queen of the Broads and the Belle of the Broads.  Visitors to the open day will be able to enjoy a trip at half of our normal published rate.  Visitors will also be able to hire a dayboat for two hours for the price of one. The ever popular Vintage Broadsman will be on her moorings providing a licensed bar with teas and coffees and light refreshments.  There is ample parking, and customer toilets on site.  Hoveton and Wroxham railway station is only a 10 minute walk way.

Other on site attractions during the weekend will include a Hog Roast and ice cream, all from local producers. We also hope to be joined by other attractions close to the Broads, to give people a flavour of what our magical waterland has to offer.

We have just received the exciting news that the Pleasure Wherry Norada will be joining us for the 2 days. We are very pleased to see this lovely traditional craft back on the water after her extensive refit during 2011 and 2012.

Watch this space for further details or alternatively contact a member of our team on 01603 782207
