New Boat Launches to Dazzle Norfolk’s Waters

Herbert Woods, a leading Norfolk Broads holiday operator located in Potter Heigham is about to launch a brand cruiser, ‘Dazzling Light.’ The newly built Dazzling Light cruiser is a 44 foot, eight berth vessel and it will be the first one of two entering the water from the end of March and ready for the Easter holidays.

Dazzling Light has been designed to be large, spacious and well equipped.  It’s an ideal boat for groups because it can sleep eight people in four separate cabins with the option of two extra people sleeping in the saloon.

For a perfect holiday to relax with all your home comforts, the new cruiser comes complete with an alfresco dining area and sun deck with sunbathing platforms.  There are LED TVs & DVD players in all three cabins and the saloon, plus all Freeview channels are available.

Playing music has been catered for with a USB port docking station which is compatible for any MP3 player, iPod and iPhone.

It has two bathrooms and a warm air heating system.  Vitally, it has a bow thruster to make mooring easier and dual steering.

Amanda Walker, Marketing Director from Herbert Woods said: “The Norfolk Broads continues to be a popular destination choice for many and the quality of our boats is crucial for our holidaymakers so that they have the best experience and most comfortable time while cruising on our magical waters.”

The cruiser has a large saloon and a light contemporary finish with teak and holly laminate strip flowing throughout.
