Continuing to Grow Our Norfolk Broads Fleet

Herbert Woods Expanding Their Fleet For Norfolk Broads Boat Hire

Herbert Woods have been operating their much-loved boatyard since 1929, and the name has become synonymous with the Norfolk Broads. Visitors from all over the country head to Herbert Woods for Norfolk Broads boat hire and beautiful days out on the water. The award-winning holiday company have been heavily investing in their fleet and services this year, preparing for a busy summer ahead.

With over 130 cruisers already in their fleet, Herbert Woods are working hard to welcome new, upgraded models for their visitors and sell on their old boats. The company have a rich history of ‘light’ boats, which were developed by the late Herbert Woods specifically to handle the narrow waterways of the Norfolk Broads. Today, every boat in the Herbert Woods fleet features ‘light’ in the name, and they are all perfectly designed for Norfolk Broads boat hire.

The New Cruisers In The Herbert Woods Fleet

Gleaming Light is one of the most popular options for Norfolk Broads boat hire, and Herbert Woods are now launching the Gleaming Light 2. The Gleaming Light 2 is set to be one of the best cruisers for experiencing everything the stunning Norfolk Broads have to offer. With two cabins, a family bathroom and beautifully light living space, this boat is ideal for a short break or a week-long holiday.

For small families or a couple’s getaway, Ruby Light is an excellent cruiser choice. Their current Ruby Light was new for 2020 and following great success, Herbert Woods are welcoming a second to their fleet for winter 2021. The warmer months are not the only time for Norfolk Broads boat hire, and Adventuring Light is a popular option for families looking for a boating break all year round. Herbert Woods already boasts two Adventuring Lights and are investing in a third this summer.

James Brooks commented about their new builds ‘The progress of getting these two new builds into the fleet is exciting and due to the demand of staycations and Boating Holidays we only felt it was right to make on start on these builds, the Adventuring and Ruby Light range are very popular and we can’t keep up with demand. Adventuring Light 3 will be ready for July which will be an any day boat excluding Thursdays and Sundays which appeals to those who can start on the quieter turn around days. Ruby Light 2 will be ready early part of the winter season (November) and will be available on either a Saturday or Tuesday. I can honestly say I’m really excited to see who are the first customers to hire out these two new luxury cruisers”.

Both Ruby Light and Adventuring Light sleep up to four, starting from £465 for short breaks and £664 for seven-night breaks. These two new cruisers will also be part of their ever growing winter fleet of cruisers that are available to hire in February and November.
