Boats, Bure and the Broads

The River Bure, Norfolk.
On a river trip on the River Bure last weekend I was surprised that considering it’s the school holidays it wasn’t too busy. But I suppose the Norfolk Broads hasn’t been a ‘must visit’ vacation destination since the 1930s.

Not all the modern motor boats were tiny – a few whoppers splashed and throbbed their way along the river.

'Hi there - we're having a very pleasant holiday, thanks!'

The people who looked like they were enjoying themselves the most were an older couple busy sailing this 1939 sailing boat, Hustler V.

It is possible to hire a 1930’s sailing boat from the local company, Hunter’s Yard. They have two, three and four berth yachts available, but you do need to have some sailing experience.

  1. Lovely, we used to keep a boat on the Broads when we lived in Norfolk and it was very often quiet too, especially in the colder months. We always coveted a lovely old wooden boat like the Hustler!
