Hi Shane

It really depends on how long you want to cruise each day. We hired for about 10 years on the broads, before taking the plunge and buying. You will comfortably be able to cruise the all northern Broads and rivers and depending upon your boat, maybe even get under Wroxham and Potter Heigham bridges, within 1 week. The Northern Broads are a bit more busy than those south. If you wish to go south then you have the fun of sorting tides and times, for getting across Braydon Water. In June you will have some of the longest days so a trip south is easily possible if you want. Either way I am sure you will enjoy the experience.  

Paul and Jan

Hi Shane, Looking at the hire boat info link below for Madeira the craft will not pass under Potter Bridge but there is still plenty to do in the northern broads to keep you happy. You will have plenty of time to see all the northern rivers and broads but they will be very busy and you may have to moor up early if you want to get to some of the riverside pubs. I find that trying to make a planned route doesn't work so well as we rarely stick to it. I find that following the front of the boat usually works LOL. If you want to spend time in Grot Yarmouth I would recommend mooring at Acle or Stracey Arms and get public transport in and back.

I love tearing along at 3MPH

We have just done Oulton Broad - Potter Heigham - Womack - Neatishead - Wayford Bridge - Stalham - Sutton - Ranworth Broad - Horning - Wroxham - Ranworth - South Walsham - and Back to Oulton in 4 days. A quick trip but that was all the time we had and the tides through Yarmouth were right

It's really best not to plan. It's a relaxing, free-form holiday. Making a plan of where and when you'll go somewhere starts to try and regiment it and introduces the liklihood of disapointment. What if you planned to overnight at Thurne and eat at the pub but got there too late to get a mooring (happens all the time)? Your plan is shot immediately.

The best advise is to take it as it comes.
