Save Broads Sailing Holidays – new Campaign from Norfolk Yacht Operators

The five companies that offer yachts for hire on the Norfolk Broads have formed a new partnership to promote sailing holidays in the Broads National Park.

A new website: has been launched to act as the focal point for the campaign featuring all the Broads yachts still available for hire, ranging from classic 1930s mahogany boats to brand new fibreglass yachts.

The website offers ‘live’ availability and is backed by a specialist helpline to advise novice and experienced sailors alike.

“Fifty years ago there were over 40 boatyards and hundreds of cabin yachts for hire,” says Andy Hamilton, the Chairman of the new Broads Sailing group. “Now motor cruisers dominate the waterways, but five operators still offer this uniquely Norfolk experience.”

“We need to make Broads sailing holidays easy to find online, easy to understand and easy to book.”

Between them, the five companies offer a wide range of yachts from two to eight berths to suit both novices and experienced sailors.

Each operator includes comprehensive ‘handover’ instruction at the start of each holiday and two of the boatyards offer RYA tuition at extra cost so that even complete beginners can enjoy sailing on the Norfolk Broads.

A three-night weekend hire of a two-berth cabin yacht in June starts at £363.

A family-sized yacht sleeping four costs from £629 for a week in August.
