Bittern is ideal as a luxury dayboat for a half day or full day trip, we do let her out for longer breaks as well, however during the main Summer school holidays she is only available for half and full day bookings. Outside this time some people will take her out for as long as a fortnight. She is licensed for daytrips for up to 8 people, and can sleep 2 adults plus 2 children quite comfortably. Bittern is fully equipped with a fridge, shower, cooker, radio, heating, all the crockery and cutlery you could need, and for overnights the bedding is made up ready for your arrival.

We hire Bittern without the help of any agencies, so we can be very flexible with her. There are no fuel deposits, or damage waivers, the price is all inclusive. We can also be very flexible with start dates and durations. Basically, if she isn’t booked and there’s a period that you want to take her, we can accomodate!

She is incredibly popular, and at the moment there is only one Bittern, so we would definately recommend that you book very early, but you can always give us a ring on short notice too, you never know she might have a space in her diary for you!

Bittern’s pricing is done a little differently from most other Broads Cruisers, mostly because she is so versatile. We do have a high season covering July and August in the pricing, but that’s the only change in price band. Otherwise, we just have a half day rate, full day rate, and then an overnight rate. After the first overnight, you just keep tacking on extra nights for as long as you want. Hopefully that’s clear below, but you can always contact us if you want a more detailed quote.
