Boat Hire Holidays on the Norfolk Broads on a budget

There's no denying that we're living through times where the cost of living has exploded. For some, that may mean their only chance of getting afloat this year, is by choosing a boat that still fulfils all the basic needs, but is perhaps a little less modern, and has fewer of the "frills" which you can find on the more swish cruisers. Having said that all boats will be of a good standard and will be clean and tidy. We have curated a range of 36 such cruisers, which are more affordable, and will enable you to experience a holiday on the Norfolk Broads, at a price that won't make your bank card squirm!

What can you expect to find on an economy level boat. Here are just a few examples
