Norfolk Broads boating holidays

Barnes Brinkcraft is a family-run Norfolk boatyard that has been providing boating holidays on the Norfolk Broads since 1964.  We are ideally located in Wroxham, the gateway to the Broads National Park, making a great location to start your Norfolk Broads boating holiday experience. Book direct with us for the best prices and holiday experiences.

We have nearly 100 holiday boats to choose from suiting all budgets and requirements, from 2 berth holiday boats up to our large cruisers that can accommodate 12 people. Holidays start days are on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays or Saturdays. We provide training, life jackets, maps, guides, bedding, towels, and a welcome aboard pack and many of our boats have WiFi.  Add a paddleboard or rowing dinghy along with your main holiday boat and explore the less accessible areas of the broads too!

Whatever style of hire boat you fancy, modern, traditional, practical or sporty, all of our Norfolk cruisers are well equipped and fitted with the kit you need to have a comfortable and enjoyable boating holiday on the Norfolk Boards. Read our guide on choosing your perfect boat.

"A very easy booking process, with staff always happy to answer any questions by phone beforehandThe boat, Duet 2, was well equipped, with everything needed for a single holidaymaker (although next time I’ll bring my own duvet as the nights got cold!)The training run before being let loose on the river, Harry was very patient and positive when explaining and showing what needed to be done, from basic knots to manoeuvring and mooring the boatAll in all, excellent value for money"
