Houseboats are really busy this week and next, but….

We do have a few spaces between the 10th and the 24th of October to fill.  A week is from £325, or we can do short breaks from £75 per night with a minimum price of 3 nights.  We might even be able to sort out a very special price on dayhire whilst you’re staying with us too!  Call on 01692 598314 if you would like to book.

Solan Goose, Reduced Price £19,950ono

We’ve just reduced the asking price on our Solan Goose. She’s now available for £19,950, or near offer. She’s available for viewing at any time, and comes with the mooring until at least the spring, longer if you want it! 5 or 6 years ago this would have been a £28k boat, so it’s certainly a buyers market at the moment. Time to grab a bargain!



Late availability this week.

Our Sundew houseboats are available for the week of the 5th to the 12th of September.  We will take offers on a short break or full week on these boats.  Just phone on 01692 598314 with your offer!

Late Vacancies, now open for short breaks on our Houseboats.

We have a few open spaces on our Houseboats and have decided to open them up for short break bookings for the rest of the summer.  The smaller Sunrise Boats will be £75 per night and the larger Sundew, sleeping up to 6 people will be £90 per night.  There is a minimum charge of 3 nights, but we are happy to be flexible with start days and length of stay.  Have a look at the pages for Sunrise and Sundew to check the availability, then get in touch on 01692 598314 or to book.

2015 Houseboat Holidays

We are taking bookings for 2015 Houseboat Holidays right now. Some of the popular weeks are already close to selling out, so don’t delay!

We haven’t got round to sitting down and working out the 2015 pricing yet, so the great news is that if you book before we do that, you’ll be guaranteed this years prices. (We’ll probably set the new prices from the 1st November)

Winter Storage Update

Lots of new faces are taking advantage of our Winter Storage opportunity up here at Hickling this Autumn, along with all the boats that we normally look after. So much so that space is beginning to become a bit limited on the bank. There is still much more room for boats staying afloat though.

If you do want your boat lifted and stored here over the winter, or overwintering in our dyke, then get in touch soon on 01692 598314 or email . The crane is coming on the 7th of November.

Winter Storage

We’re still enjoying this lovely late summer weather, but we’re also beginning to think of our winter work. We have room here to store boats over the winter period. Dinghies on trailers can be kept here for £150 inc vat, based on 1st October to 31st March 2015. Bigger boats can be stored on the land, or in the water, at a cost of £57.60 per metre inc vat.

We have a crane booked for the 7th of November to lift boats out, either onto the bank or onto trailers to take away or store. The crane will come again in the spring to lift in. We supply all the chocks etc to secure the boats on the hard standing. We can also undertake demasting and other winter maintenance tasks. Should you need your boat collecting from it’s summer berth, we can do this, assuming it is moored above Potter Heigham Bridge. Phone on 01692 598314 if you would like any further information, or to book your slot.

Busy summer and some late vacancies.

We’ve been having a really busy summer up here at Hickling, with full Houseboats and people here enjoying our Dayboats, Sailing Boats and Canoes.

Amazingly, we still have some empty Houseboats  for the week commencing 30th of August.  Most of the children go back to school during that week, so we’re happy to take short breaks, during the week that starts on Saturday the 30th, for £80 per night on the bigger Sundew Boats, or £65 per night on the Sunrise class boats.  That would be for a minimum of 3 nights, but you could do  3,4,5,6 or 7 nights for that price.  Just phone the yard on 01692 598314, or send an email to and we will get you booked in.

New Boats!

In addition to all the other offerings on our dayboat page, Launches, canoes, and half-deckers.  We also now have two Yeomans and a Wayfarer available.  Call to book soon, they’re very busy this summer!

Summer is almost here…

Silver Tip looking all shiny, on a beautiful day up at Hickling.  This is the busiest week of the year for us, with so much to do to get ready before Easter, but we’re getting there.  Great weather certainly helps though, and Tippy will have her mast, spars and sail fitted tomorrow, ready to spend another summer taking people  sailing and making them smile.
