The whole experience was a doddle! Easy to book - great customer service - we even started slightly early as our boat came back in early. Excellent briefing - boat handled like a dream and we barely saw anyone else!!

Fantastic service from Martham Ferry Boat Yard. The electric boat we hired was great - spacious, well equipped, really easy to drive and most importantly super quiet.
The location, under Potter Heigham bridge in the quietest part of the Broads, was lovely, and as we had the boat for the entire day we had plenty of time to reach Horsey Windpump and Hickling, and we could have easily visited West Somerton and the Potter Heigham bridge too, however we spent the rest of the day moored up in various beautiful quiet spots painting the scenery and just taking in the serenity.
The guys at the boatyard are super friendly, knowledgeable, and very kindly looked after our bikes for us.
There was only the two of us on "Rocket 1", but 8 people could easily spend the day on the boat without feeling cramped.
Can't recommend this place highly enough and we'll certainly be back sometime in the next few months to take Rocket 1 out for more quiet adventures.

A fabulous day out after using the guys at Martham Ferry Boat Hire. A warm greeting on arrival, followed by useful and informative tuition, before being let loose at the wheel. High waters due to all the rain over the preceding weeks meant our possible routes were a little curtailed, but this didn't spoil the family fun. The boat was easy to steer, very quiet (being electric) and had sufficient facilities on board to service the day trippers. Thoroughly recommended.

Perfect afternoon out! The boat was in good condition and easy to drive. We were given all the information we needed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Great to have a loo on board and to be able to make cups of tea.
We definitely hope to return.

From booking to leaving we had a smooth experience. We hired an electric Rocket 2 boat for the two of us and large dog, briefing before sailing was good and easy to follow. Lovely 2 hour trip then back to boatyard for a hot drink and cake in the little tearoom overlooking the water.

We hired a smaller boat for 4-hours which was cheaper than what we thought. The guys at the Martham boat hire were friendly and gave you all the necessary info so put you at ease. We’d never boated before so were a bit nervous but no need to be at all. The boat was super easy to drive which made for a very relaxing day. Take a picnic and soak up the beauty of the Norfolk broads. We would 100% recommend and will do again when we are back visiting Norfolk.

The explanation was so clear about the expectations of being on the water way. The boat was clean and easy to drive. The people working there were informative and helpful.
Would highly recommend.

We hired an electric boat for 1/2 a day and sailed up past Potter Heigham and stopped for a picnic. Then to Hickling Broad. Really stunning, wonderful wildlife and so so quiet. Highly recommend if you want a relaxing day.
