I'm trying to arrange a day out with a group of friends on the Norfolk Broads - the problem I'm finding is that no one seems to hire out day boats which can carry anymore than 8 people.

Does anyone know a company who hires out day boats on the broads for larger groups? If so - any info would be appreciated!

Thanks,
SeaSurfer!

Hi SeaSurfer, I may be wrong but I think DRL Marine have a boat that they call their picnic boat which they hire out for the day. It used to be called Hi Smuggler when I hired it in 2008 and I think they have converted it to carry more people

all the best

Following a tragedy many years ago the then Board of Trade rules were changed to require strict licencing of vessels and skippers of vessels carrying more than 12 persons.  Therefore the maximum you can take on a suitable hire boat is 12.

Thanks everyone for the info - much appreciated! It's taken me ages looking - but in future I'll be asking on here! Thanks for the info re the rules etc - I've been wondering why they don;t do more than 10/12 people - interesting.

Cheers!
