This is a fl eet of fi ve historic pleasure wherries and wherry yachts, ranging in age from 94 to 116 years old. The pleasure wherries are Hathor and Ardea; the wherry yachts are Olive, Norada and White Moth. These magnifi cent, fully-restored vessels are based in Wroxham and usually sail the Broads from May to September each year. The wherries can be chartered for your exclusive use; they can be booked by the day with a skipper and crew, or for longer with just a skipper, who has separate living quarters. There’s usually also a programme of public sailings, from two hours to a full day, with skipper and crew. 01603 781475 wherryyachtcharter.org

St Benet’s Abbey Norfolk Wherry Trust


and Wherry Maud Trust There are few things more evocative of the Broads than the sight of a black-sailed trading wherry moving with the power of the wind. Of the original 300 that transported a huge variety of goods and materials from staithe to staithe there are now only two still plying the rivers and broads, Maud and Albion. The Norfolk Wherry Trust hopes to off er charters on Albion again this year. wherryalbion.com wherrymaudtrust.org
