CURLEW

The Curlew is new to Barnes Brinkcraft this year (from another hire boatyard). Previous hirers have found her to be very comfortable and easy to handle. Her layout makes her popular with families

Please note Curlew is a tall boat, and will not go under the bridges at Wroxham, Ludham, Potter Heigham or Great Yarmouth

The dual steering position makes this boat ideal for all weather conditions and gives great visibility across the broads.  It also means you need to be quite nimble to get up to and down below

Start Days: Saturday | Tuesday
Price From: £100 per night
Sleeps: 4+2 Guests

We provide a manual (both electronically and in hard copy onboard) to help you enjoy your holiday

Our experienced crew will be happy to answer your questions before you leave the yard.

We would recommend at least one member of your crew have good mobility, for moving about the deck and mooring

A member of our team will direct you to your boat, getting your car as near as possible to the boat so you can unpack
