There are various styled motor cruisers available to hire on the Norfolk Broads. For first timers on the Broads, the choice can often lead to confusion over which boat is the most suitable. Choosing your boat is a very important element of your holiday, so we have provided some useful tips to help you make a more informed decision.

The six styles of motor cruiser you typically find on the Norfolk Broads are: Sedan Cruiser, Centre Cockpit Cruiser, Dual Steering Cruiser, Forward Steering Cruiser, Sports Cruiser, and Cabin Cruiser. Depending on the needs of your holiday, a certain cruiser may be more suitable for your holiday. For example, we recommend a Forward Steering motor cruiser for parties taking a furry friend, as these styled boats tend to be one level interior and with the galley located near the steering position, there is room for you all to be near the skipper.

I’ve never been boating before – what do I need to know?

You dont need to have any previous experience to cruise your own motor cruiser on the Norfolk Broads, as full tuition is supplied on arrival at the marina. The marina staff will stay on board with you whilst you get to grips with the steering and once you feel 100% confident, they will jump off, leaving you free to charter the waters.  Your hired boat will only cruise on average 4-6 miles per hour, so take your time getting comfortable with your hire craft at your own pace.

There are a few essentials to take on your first boating holiday, we have supplied a handy list of suggest items for you to take, compiled from our own experience. We can also supply a list when confirming your boating holiday upon request. Read more…
