Oliver's Sailing Holidays

 on the Norfolk Broads

I’ve spent 19 years renting yachts, and yours is the most beautiful,
best equipped and most fun to sail I’ve ever chartered.

We are a small sailing holiday business, specialising in affordable high quality yachts.

Our traditional sailing yachts are some of the very best sailing yachts on the Norfolk Broads. They are fast, easy to sail, beautifully maintained and equipped with superb handling characteristics.

Included in your hire is 45 minute yacht familiarisation and 45 minutes sailing with an instructor if required. All our yachts have inboard diesel engines, they come equipped with luxury down-feel cotton percale duvets, high quality towels, sheets and cooking equipment as well as showers, toilets and heating. Our gaff rigged sailing holiday yachts, offer an authentic broads sailing experience in style and comfort. Families welcome.

Special Location

  • Our boats are located at the peaceful and secluded hamlet of Martham Ferry.

  • Overlooking the stunning National Trust's wildlife reserve of Heigham Holmes featured in the BBC1 TV series Secret Britain.

  • The Broads are made up of 120 miles of beautiful rivers and lakes. As a National Park it features spectacular scenery and wildlife that has remained unchanged for hundreds of years.

  • Most of the Broads can only be reached by water and offer a slower pace of life so, put the clocks back, leave the 21st century behind and enjoy a peaceful sailing holiday on the Broads.

  • There is lots to entertain the whole family, on these safe, inland waters.

What a fabulous end to the summer holidays! Bright Spark was fun to sail and a comfortable and beautiful boat inside and out-everyone seemed to want us in their photos! Lots of fun with three children- even on the one rainy afternoon, playing cards around the cabin table. Fabulous!
