Holiday Packages

Sailing holidays on the Norfolk Broads have been a traditional part of British life since the turn of the century - and are still unique and unrivalled. Enjoy the wonders of the Broadland area with a week-long escape. Set off on visits to hostelries or local attractions, and return to the much needed luxury comfort of your yacht at night to experience the beautiful sunsets over a mystical shine on the water.

Sailing on the Broads with family or friends, experienced or novice, can be your kind of holiday - whether you go for independence and excitement, for relaxation, or just for that sense of achievement.

If the wind isn't filling your sails, the onboard engine lets you easily dip into the real world of Broad-side shops, pubs and fascinating heritage sites.

What's Provided?

All our yachts are equipped with duvets, pillows, sheets, 2 tea towels, and a dishcloth. You will need to bring washing up liquid and toilet rolls.

There is a full compliment of glasses, cutlery, various sizes of plates, mugs, stainless saucepans and a non-stick frying pan.

A complimentary ‘welcome pack’ will also be provided with local specialities, tea, coffee & milk to get you started!

Hire Conditions


Little prior knowledge is required to take a boat out for the week. You may take part in a fun-filled RYA training session prior to your holiday, or take hourly sessions on your yacht with one of our instructors on the afternoon you arrive.

For those of you who have never sailed, we provide 'Taste of Sailing' days in partnership with the Norfolk Broads School of Sailing. This day provides the opportunity to experience the thrill of cabin yacht sailing under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor. You will be shown how to rig and handle the yacht and will be able to take control for some simple manoeuvres.

Contact us to arrange a Taste of Sailing day. Prices can be found here.
