Norfolk boating holidays for over 60's with limited mobility

We’re often asked by customers, What’s the best Norfolk boating holidays for over 60’s with limited mobility.  There are plenty of people who have had a hip replacement or dodgy knee but continue to love holidays on the Norfolk Broads
 
We have quite a few boats with designs that make a boating holiday quite a lot more enjoyable for those of us who have a few creaking bones.  See our selection below, and read on for further advice 

Single level floors

The selection of boats below all have single-level floors. So once you’ve climbed into the boat there are no more steps into the galley or up to the front cabin
 
These are also the best boats for getting to the furthest reaches of the broads. The lack of a second steering position means that these are low lying boats. Many of which will fit under Potter Heigham bridge. Providing access to Hickling Broad and Nature Reserve.  You may need to step up into the driving position though.

Bow Thrusters

Choose boats with Bow Thrusters,  The mini engine in the bow of the boat is a great help. It makes it much easier to steer the boat when mooring up.  Ensuring you can safely step onto the quay heading.
 

Electric Anchor Winches

No more need to heave up the mud weight with these little beauties, just press the button and the mud weight pops up.

Low sides and wide decks

 
It’s also worth looking at boats with low sides and Wide decks, as these are much easier to manoeuvre around.   
 

Island beds

 Some of our boats note that they have island beds, meaning that you can get out of both sides. No need to climb over your partner to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night
 
Advice for safe boating with seniors
 
Safe boating advice does not change. there are clear videos here to help. And the use of life jackets, especially when mooring up remains very important.
All our boats have handrails to make moving around the boat safer, If you are not driving, make sure you hold onto one as you come into moor up!
 
We do have customers who visit us with oxygen cylinders. Please note we cannot guarantee the electricity supply on board.
 
Barnes Brinkcraft boats are not designed for customers using wheelchairs. We recommend contacting the Nancy Oldfield Trust for further options 
 
If you have any further queries please give us a ring. Our staff will be very happy to answer any queries you have about the best Norfolk boating holidays for over 60’s with limited mobility
