Wherry Yacht Charter
Caring for the Broads' last wherry fleet

We have wherries available for charter and public day sailings this summer - contact us now to make a booking.

Can you help us keep sailing? Our wherries only sail thanks to the hard work of our volunteers. We welcome all assistance, from crewing and boat maintenance to organisation behind the scenes. Becoming a Friend is the gateway to a host of opportunities, but there are various other ways to support our charitable work. All help and income allows us to invest in restoration and brings the fleet closer to sailing together again.

Olive is seen here on her official return to the water, alongside Norada and White Moth, at Malthouse Broad (Ranworth) in 2013. She is now in full charter condition and our attention has turned to our pleasure wherry Hathor. See our news page.

Latest news

We still have spaces on our afternoon/evening sailing to the annual St Benet's Abbey Service on 3rd August. The trip includes afternoon tea on board during the round trip from Ranworth, and the price is now reduced to just £40! Many other sailings are now sold out, so this is a wonderful opportunity. A longer wherry experience is offered by our friends at How Hill, who have two residential wherry courses on offer in September, including two full days' sailing as well as evening talks, all set in beautiful surroundings.

Full details of all our sailings and events are available on our events page and as posters to print if you can help us by displaying one. If you'd like to get early information next year, or even join us as a volunteer on board, in the boatshed or behind the scenes, you can always join us!

Maintenance and restoration are still a priority. Hathor's hull restoration has just been completed, which will ensure the dry conditions that will enable her interior to be brought back to its full glory over the rest of 2014. We also have a Lead Appeal - can you help us re-ballast our wherries? Or perhaps you'd like the chance of a day charter for just £1? Please visit our News page for details and updates on all of these.
