About The Hunter Fleet and the Norfolk Heritage Trust

Our original 1930s design yachts perform wonderfully on The Broads, they were designed specifically to be sympathetic to these beautiful, unique waterways, but anyone hiring any of our fleet does need to have adequate sailing experience.

Very good dinghy sailors are welcome and we will always take the trouble to make you familiar with the various nuances associated with these yachts. If you are at all concerned about taking out a yacht without an engine for the first time, or navigating the local rivers, try a 2 hour sail with a skipper on a half decker

We provide most of what you will need for your holiday. The cabin yachts are all well stocked with crockery (in the original 1930s' design), cutlery, gas hobs with grills or ovens, water holders, blankets and pillows in cases. You will need to remember all the basics for a self-catering holiday and sheets or sleeping bags for comfort.

We have an emergency phone number which is available outside office hours and details of useful telephone numbers in the Information Pack on board. There are toilets and hot showers at the Yard open 24 hours a day. The Broads offers over 120 miles of safe navigable waterways. We hope you have a wonderful time!

All Lullaby Class Yachts have 4 berths (*with an optional 1 extra person). These sloop-rigged, carvel-built of mahogany Yachts are equipped to comfortably accommodate a party of 4 people. They have two separate cabins divided by a companion-way and toilet compartment.

Our latest addition, Lucent, joined the Fleet in 2008 and was built using the traditional 1930s methods to the same specifications as all the ‘Lullabys’. We’re sure Percy would be just as proud of her as we are. Equipment and necessary utensils are provided. Some sailing experience is required for this craft.
