Frequently Asked Questions

No, you don’t need to have any experience or special licences to hire a Broads Cruiser. On arrival, we will give you a full demonstration of how to use, drive and moor the boat. You will also receive videos of how to handle a boat before you arrive.

We provide a manual (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.

On arrival at the boatyard, find yourself a temporary parking space outside reception.

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

Once you are ready, make your way back to reception with your car keys and paperwork for check-in.

We’ll book you in for your trial run at that point. We customise your tuition to suit your needs.

If the boat is not quite ready, we’ll take your mobile telephone number and contact you as soon as you can go onboard.

Boats will usually be available between 2 and 4 pm. We need them back at 9 am on your day of departure.
 
Some will be available earlier, but we can’t guarantee which boats will be ready early.
 
Each boat is
Pumped out (sewage removed from toilet tanks)
Filled up with fuel and water
Serviced by both the engineers and boat builders
Cleaned inside and out
Inspected by our head cleaner
 
We’re never quite sure what we will find when the boats return, which is why we don’t give you an exact pick-up time.
Yes, please give us a ring to let us know, and we’ll let you know where your boat is so you can go onboard when you arrive. We usually move the boat to just outside reception, so it’s easy to find.
 
In the morning, we will go through the check-in and trial run with you.
 
For safety reasons, you must not take the boat out of the yard until you have had a trial run.

Yes, by 9 am please, ready for our staff to get on board and sort her out for the next customers.

"Great company, easy booking. Helpful team onsite. We hired a boat for a family of 4 for two hours and we had a fantastic time!"
- Alan Knightly
"Quick and easy pick up and drop off of the boat from a very friendly and helpful person. Enjoyed the easy pace of the day. Value for money for the full day hire of the boat."
- Andrew Wade
"We had a lovely day on Sunrise 2. Using a boat is the only way to explore the Broads. It is a lovely area. The boat was in good condition. We didn't use the stove but did use the other facilities. The handover was friendly and efficient. We were surprised that we managed to park up the boat at the end of the day as we struggled with this during the trip (and amusing epic fail, which much have amused passerbys). Perhaps a little more tutorage on this may have helped us here. All in all a great day. We are glad we did it and the well maintained, bigger boat provided by this professional boat company really helped."
- Lilian Bell
"Lovely people and very nice trip out on the boat"
- Matt Norman
