About Freedom Cruisers

Freedom Boating Holidays is a family-run business set on the "bootiful" Norfolk Broads on the edge of Thorpe Marshes Nature Reserve. We founded the business in 2007, bucking the trend of over a decade of small hire boat operators selling up and moving on.

Our core business is providing boating holidays but we also offer day boats, picnic boats and other water craft for hire. We also have a sister company offering quality Norfolk holiday cottages. In addition, we've spent some time building a solid reputation for delivering a quality service for private boat owners from simple antifouling jobs to full-blown fault finding and repair tasks. We are also a specialist Outboard Engine centre and offer repairs, servicing, winter storage and sales.

Freedom's approach to boat hiring is somewhat different to most other companies as we offer very flexible holidays - you can start and end your break on any day you choose (subject to availability). This has found great favour with holidaymakers everywhere and as our working lives become more pressured, we expect our approach to continue to attract new customers year on year.

Freedom operates with a small, dedicated team of people who are all focused on ensuring that your time on our boats is as relaxing as possible. Our maintenance and improvement programme has seen the total refurbishment of one cruiser and partial refit of a number of others. Our web sites offer unrivaled information to our customers on the Broads and other aspects of boating holidays and were the first to offer full on-line availabilty and pricing. We're also proud to say that the price you see on our web sites is the price you pay - there are no hidden extras.

Freedom is also proud of its boat handover procedures and we make no appology for taking 45 minutes or more in showing you how to operate your cruiser safely and how to check it over to ensure that it won't let you down. Don't worry though, day hire boats take far less time to acquiant you with their features.
