At the turn of the century, Wherry yachts were the ultimate in luxury to Edwardians seeking an adventure holiday on the Broads.
Commissioned in 1915 and entirely re-fitted by local craftsmen, she is one of the last examples of her kind, providing an idyllic means of experiencing the beautiful Norfolk Broads. Sailing this elegant craft is a unique way of enjoying the variety of wildlife and scenery, as well as providing an insight into how the Edwardians spent their time on the Broads.
A skipper and local guide is in charge of the day-to-day running of the craft (self-contained crew quarters are situated in the forepeak) and you may sail the boat just as much or as little as you wish. The Wherry sleeps up to ten guests in three double cabins and two double settee berths.
Rig: Gaff with single loose-footed mainsail of over 1000 square feet.
Engine: Inboard diesel for full motor cruising capability.
