Hi Folks, I will be coming to the broads in December. Do any boatyards still hire out craft this late in the year?
Thanks in advance.

The simple answer is yes but I'm not sure which ones but I'm sure some one will be along shortly with more info.

Hello, I have only come across one hire company that hires out boats in December, January and February and that is Freedom Boats.

http://www.freedomboatingholidays.co.uk/

Even then you are not to travel any further along the Yare than Reedham.

There may be more and I too would be interested to know.

Traditionally you would not consider that time of year and especially January and February as the ice risk was just too great. But it much less frequent now. The last two winters have been so mild the grass has hardly stopped growing. February for interest is usually the driest month in Norfolk, December the wettest and actually August is not that far behind for rainfall.

Hi ,  I am sure the romantic idea of Christmas on a boat is for some but please bear in mind boats get very damp at that time of year, you will need more than an extra overcoat, hot water bottles etc.   Ok I suppose if you can hire one of these super duper craft with heating you can run at all hours.    The days are short and even with solar panels batteries still need to be charged, there again you could get on a 240 v point at Potter Heigham just to name one,  I am sure there are many others if you are hiring 'Up North'.  Down South there are many leccy points.

Not sure about water points or waste disposal.  I am sure the yard will tell you more.

Quite a lot of yards switch off the waterin winter in case of freezing and the hoses are removed from some staithes.

Another optioni for winter is dayboat hire. Geo Smith in Wroxham hire all yeat and the boats have warm air heating, a cooker and a toilet, so you're quite self sufficient. I've had a few lovely days out on them on a cold winters day. (And of course there's no sailing boats for hire in Winter).

NBD - norfolk broads direct definatly hire out in December and over Xmas and new year as far as I can find they are the only yard who hire out, they hire out but not all their entire fleet, other yards shut down.

Some are already booked!

How do I know?

Big treat for us a bling bling NBD booked for Xmas 2015 in our little bit of heaven.

Yes it's going to be an experience but can't wait.

Bob

Hi Folks, thanks for your help and suggestions. I think we will book a cottage and a day boat instead.
Thanks again.
