We recently hired a half decker from Hunter's yard and had an excellent day out. The boat was pristine, obviously very well maintained and sailed beautifully. We had a skipper who was great fun and knew what he was doing. You can do as much or as little work as you like, so you can get involved or just watch... More

We all thoroughly enjoyed a 2 hr skippered sail with Tony as our volunteer skipper. We had fantastic weather and were able to get the decks wet a few times! Lovely old boat which was fun to sail. Excellent value for money too.

A piece of history you can get your hands. No noisy smelly diesel engines. Sail like they did half a century ago in some of the most amazing surroundings. The staff are fantastic The boats unbelievable. My 14 year old daughter loved it

I learnt to sail here over the summer and have been back since for some tutored sessions. I have also moored up here in a friend's yacht. I strongly recommend their sailing tuition. If I can achieve my RYA certificate, then quite frankly, anyone can. Their fleet of wooden heritage boats (both half-decker day boats and cabin yachts) is beautiful,... More

Booked for the two hour session and had a fantastic time. Our skipper was Tony, who was extremely knowledgable and encouraged us all to have a go at various aspects of sailing the boat. It really is a brilliant thing to do if you're visiting the Broads. The Hunters Boat a Yard is like stepping back in time. Beautiful boats,... More

Fabulous people. Wonderful boats. Superb yard with lovely, friendly visitors. If you want to learn to sail ( even at the wrong side of 50 ) this is the place! Set sail and let the wind and tide decide where you go. Nights out amidst natures best...wow! This is no rest it's an experience and we will be back again... More

Genuinely the most unique, special boatyard on the broads. Immaculately preserved 1930s sailing boats that have hardly changed since they were built. A hidden gem.

FANTASTIC 2-hour sail charter in beautiful half-decker, courtesy of Hunter's Boatyard at Ludham on the Norfolk Broads. This is a fantastic facility...to sail their boat with an experienced skipper. The wind was strong and gusting 5 knots, and we had 3 reefs on the mainsail...and it was SO exhilarating. I highly recommend this.
