Fantastic boatyard. I emailed several boat hire companies but chose these guys as the lady answering emails was very friendly and helpful.  When we arrived at the yard the guys there were just as nice. Everyone was lovely and welcoming, and the boat was fantastic.  Will definitely use them again.

We hired an 12 person electric picnic boat for the day during Easter and had a lovely time. The boat was very well kept, the instructions and explanation given about how to drive and manoeuvre the boat were clear and thorough. There was plenty of room for 4 adults, one child and 4 dogs (varying in size and age!). The on board facilities of the kettle on a gas hob, toilet, water and table were very useful throughout the day. We had a great time exploring The Broads. Thank you!
