NEW for 2015: Book your next holiday on a 1930s sailing yacht starting at the village of Ludham off the River Thurne on the Norfolk Broads.
The historic mahogany yachts are part of the Norfolk Heritage Fleet Trust and have traditional gaff rig sails. There are 14 boats available for holiday hire, sleeping up to 4 adults.
Each of the boats offers competent sailors an unforgettable holiday. At least one person in group needs to have sailing experience. The yachts handle easily and the gaff rig makes these boats well suited to the reed-fringed Broads. When there is very little wind, the unique quant pole enables sailors to ‘walk’ the boat through shallow waters.
There are simple home comforts on board including an inside cabin with a dining table flanked by full-sized seating/sleeping berths, a compartment containing wc and washbasin, and a small hob and grill in the aft well.
The boats are very eco-friendly; they don’t have an engine and there’s no electricity on board.
The holidays are priced to attract youth groups and families, the rates being the same throughout the year. A week’s hire of 4 berth ‘Lullaby’ is £805, three night short breaks are £466.
