We were staying in Horning in a cottage for a week. We wanted a local firm to hire a day boat from so we could walk from the cottage to collect it, and we found JB Boats online. We hired their Lady Amanda boat for three days. We received a very warm welcome, both when we booked by phone and when we arrived to collect the boat. They could not have been more helpful. The boat was spotless, and perfect for our needs. We received good tuition and dos and don’ts before we set off and had a comprehensive pack in the boat with emergency numbers to call if we had any issues, which we didn’t. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the Broads. The team were ready and waiting for us when we arrived back so no stress in mooring the boat back in place. I would highly recommend. Fantastic service. Thank you so much.

Half a day hire on a day boat. From the off the staff were polite and helpful and arranged a boat a short notice. On arrival paperwork was completed in a few minutes and I was shown to the boat and given a hand over. Boat was spotless and work was well and was easy to manoeuvre even if you are not experienced. Return was just as easy and the owner was on hand to assist in tying off. 100% recommend this company for a day boat hire.

I have recently hired both Lady Amanda and Lady Victoria from JB Boats in Horning. Fabulous customer service from Jonny when booking and some great recommendations of where to explore on the Norfolk Broads.
A really great and thorough handover of the boat from John on both occasions.
Both boats were fantastic, immaculately clean and well maintained. We had a great time. Highly recommended for a personal service, knowledgeable team and an unforgettable day out on the Norfolk Broads.

Me, my son and elderly mum enjoyed a wonderful day out on the broads.

We took out a boat called Lady Amanda, named after one of the owners. I was quite nervous as this was a brand new, large boat and I’m not an experienced “captain” but Amanda and her husband assured me that I’d be fine. They gave me a thorough briefing and gave me the confidence to navigate the river and even park up at a lovely pub - The Swan.

They went the extra mile to ensure we had a lovely day. Thank you JB boat sales.

We hired the Princess Victoria which is a very easy boat for amateurs to use and beautifully maintained. Very helpful and friendly people too.

Booked Lady Amanda over Bank Holiday weekend for 4 adults and 3 fairly young children (ages 2,6 and 7) it was ideal as roomy enough and had a toilet on board.
Finding JB Boat sales was easy and plenty of free parking so that wasn't an issue, the owners John and Amanda were so lovely and welcoming and went through the safety and boat piloting and waterway rules, and fitted kids life jackets and even gave them sweets and sent us off with advice on where to head off to and have lunch. We went left for a little amble for a few hours exploring and then came back to Horning for lunch and back past JB Boat sales and moored up at the New Inn pub and had a wonderful Sunday roast (would recommend).

We took Lady Amanda put on the Broads for the day and couldn’t have been mor impressed. The service was friendly and welcoming, the instructions for operating the boat were really clear and the boat itself was immaculate. We had a terrific time and both of our girls (4 and 7 years old) loved the experience! Thank you for a wonderful day!

Wow! From start to finish the day boat was fantastic.
JBBoats were friendly, professional and made everything easy for you. We had Lady Amanda and it was clean and spotless ready for us. I would definitely recommend this small family run boat company with out any doubt.

Great day out in the Broads. Warm, friendly welcome with clear guidance and boat was great and spotlessly clean. Would highly recommend for a day out in Norfolk.
