Hiring A Dayboat
You are visiting the wonderful Norfolk Broads, so what better way of seeing the beauty of the area, than by hiring a boat for an hour, half day or a whole day. Wherever you are staying, you will not be far from a boatyard which offers day boat and picnic boat hire. If you are staying at a property with its own waterfront and with access to the rivers, you might want to book a dayboat for a few days, or for the duration of your stay. This is possible and you will be able to tie the boat up outside your property, and not have to return it to the boatyard each evening. Take a look at the map below to see which is the nearest to where you are staying, then click the appropriate location and see which yards offer picnic boats and/or day boats. Finally, call the yard to arrange a booking.
