HIRING A DAY BOAT FROM PHOENIX FLEET

35+ years of experience

In 1982 we built the first electric launch for hire on the Norfolk Broads leading to the development of our fleet. All of our boats are safety checked, insured and easy to use for all the family.

Powered by electric

Our boats are better for the environment than the traditional diesel engines, with less pollution, smell and vibration. Peacefully cruise along the river in our quiet boats, with limited disturbance to the habitats and nature around you.

Ideal location

We are based in Potter Heigham, tucked away from the busy Broads of Wroxham, but still a peaceful cruise along the river to picturesque places such as Hickling, Horsey and Barton Broad.

Norfolk Broads

"The Broads, a breathing space for the cure of souls." –Ted Ellis. Explore the Broads National Park by boat, with spectacular skies, historical landmarks, wildlife in abundance, and picturesque villages lining riverbanks with traditional pubs, shops and tea rooms.

TESTIMONIALS

“Really friendly, approachable guys with a great sense of humour that made us feel really welcome. Lovely service and a really competitive price. Would highly recommend”

–Lou Willoughby

“We had a brilliant family trip out in one of Phoenix Fleet’s comfortable, quiet boats and spent many hours admiring the beautiful scenery up and down the river.”

–Kim Woodhouse

“We were welcomed by the guys at Phoenix Fleet boats and given clear instructions on how to safely operate. The six of us then had a fun and relaxing cruise up the Norfolk broads, even the children had a steer!”

–Richard Morris
