Wherry Yacht Charter
Caring for the Broads' last wherry fleet

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

The wonderful wherries Norada and White Moth are fully restored and in sailing order, ready to carry guests on tours around the Norfolk Broads. You can join us on public sailings, private charters and educational visits, and every booking helps us to secure their future.

Chartering a wherry with us gives you exclusive use from a day to a week. We also offer public sailings and various other ways to support our charitable work, including becoming a Friend. All 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) on 7th July 2013. She is now almost in full charter condition, barring a few finishing touches, and our attention has turned to our pleasure wherry Hathor. See our news page.

Latest news

We're now looking ahead to our 2014 season of public sailings, viewings and other events. Sailings range from £5 30-minute trips to a full day, meaning there's something for everyone. Full details are now available to all on our events page after a period of exclusive booking for our Friends. If you'd like to get early information next year, you can always join us!

Maintenance and restoration are, as ever, top of the off-season agenda. The big task at present is Hathor's hull, completion of which will ensure the dry conditions that will enable her interior to be brought back to its full glory over 2014. Relaunch is planned for 2015, but at this stage we can't be too specific about exactly when - watch this space for details! You can also visit our News page for photos and updates - so far we've brought her out of the water and started replacing rotten hull planks.
