Boating Holidays - Boat & Cruiser Hire

Norfolk Broads boating holidays - Without a doubt, the most magical way to discover the Broads is by boat. The waterways of the Broads are safe and easy to navigate, with over 125 tranquil, lock-free miles to explore. So much of the Broads can’t be reached by road that days – and nights – afloat become a real adventure, with hidden places, perfect fishing spots and close encounters with wildlife at every turn.

The famous Broads motor cruisers have been holiday favourites since the 1930s, and today’s boats have all the comforts of home on board, so if you prefer to visit during the quieter, cooler months, you’ll have a cosy base for your explorations. With fresh air, sparkling water and wide horizons by day, and wonderfully dark, starry nights, a boating holiday on the Broads is an unforgettable experience.

Many of our boat fleet are based on our new eco-hull, which provides maximum stability with virtually no wash to harm the river banks. Internally you will immediately appreciate the spacious and comfortable layout of these new models, conceived from the outset as a new approach to holiday boating.

Our boats will pass under most Broads bridges other than the very lowest, at suitable states of the tide.

All inclusive cruiser holidays - the price you see is the price you pay, with no hidden extras. Collision damage waiver, propeller & towing insurance, parking and a tank of fuel - all included in the price. Why? Because we are no longer tied to an agent with high commission rates and by booking direct with Ferry Marina we pass our savings on to you.

Ferry marina is a welcoming and friendly boatyard, and all the staff were warm and welcoming. The boat was modern, clean and comfortable, and good value when you consider there are no hidden extras. This was the second time I've hired from ferry marina, and would recommend to anyone looking for a boat holiday on the Broads.   Damian Clark - Golden Emblem
