“Been coming to Ferry Marina for both boating and riverside accommodation for years. We have never been disappointed and this year has been no exception. We like to fish but this year the fishing was poor. Our only concern was the frontage near the river. It seemed to dip quite a bit in places making me feel quite unsteady (I am an older person). All in all we enjoy living in beautiful homes by the river. The properties are well maintained, clean and comfortable. We will continue to visit. Staff are always welcoming and helpful, bonus.”
“I hired Platinum Emblem 1 in November 2019 for a weeks winter break, the best time to be on the broads as most moorings where mainly empty.
This is the best boat that i have hired in my many many years of boating on the Norfolk Broads.
The level of space and comfort is fantastic and the views to the rear of the boat excellent with the large sliding patio doors.
The boat is ideal for winter cruising and was not cold with the on board warm air heating.
The boat also has a large separate shower room and 2 toilets, one en suite and a large well equipped galley.
It is also ideal if you like fishing as the rear well is a good space to set up a few rods and to relax.
Ferry Marina staff are very helpful and my whole holiday with them was very easy and enjoyable.
“We hired a boat for three days in November - so very off-season! From start to finish the service from Ferry Marina was great. They were responsive and helpful in making the booking and communicated well in the run-up to the hire. The boat was perfect for our needs, clean, and in very good working order. We were given a good briefing prior to departure. All in all a very good experience and we would definitely go back another time.”
“Excellent spacious accommodation with beautiful views over the river. Lovely position with easy walk for morning paper and local restaurants. Quality bed linen and towels. Comfortable sofas - shame that the electric recliners were not working. Looked to book for next May half term and disappointed that half the week has already been taken. Can't recommend highly enough but don't spread the word or there won't be any free weeks remaining!”
“We've hired a cruiser from Ferry Marina a few times and have always found the staff welcoming and the boats in good order. Our latest experience was no different and we had a really good weeks holiday. I'd recommend them to anyone who asks.”

“BRONZE EMBLEM 2
I Hired Bronze Emblem 2 in October 2019 for one week, via an easy booking on the telephone.
Upon arrival at reception, i was met by two happy & very helpful staff.
The boat handover was very informative and everything about the boat was explained in depth.
The boat itself was very clean and easy to handle.... with the added bonus of a full sliding canopy,... although i had some extreme wet weather.... the boat remained dry inside.
The island bed in the rear cabin was very comfortable and the cabin itself large considering the boat is only 31ft in length with lots of storage.
A further added bonus was the toilet / shower room, which is located in the bow (front) of the boat, therefore very spacious.
This holiday was the best value for money i have had, considering i hire boats x3 every year.
I would highly recommend Ferry Marina for their 1st class service in the hire boat industry and would 100% use them again.
Thank you to all the staff who helped make my holiday a memorable time.”
“Excellent customer services. There has been new ownership since we holidayed with Ferry Marina last year but we still experienced the same greatn super helpful and knowledgeable staff both through the booking process and the boating holiday itself.
A lovely friendly greeting on arrival, an excellent induction and a willingness to put themselves out when we arrived after closing time requiring a water fill up, (the night before the end of the holiday), and then finally an easy checking out at the end. the whole experience was wonderful and the Ferry Marina boats (we had Star Emblem for a 2nd consecutive year) look a class above most of the others on the Broads (you can tell they take pride in their maintenance and cleanliness regimes).
Will definitely book with Ferry Marina again - very highly recommended.”
“Our holiday with ferry marina was excellent.The office staff were so helpful and welcoming and the handover from Leon was very detailed and instructive,right down to how the fridge worked. We are looking forward to our next holiday with them and meeting them all again hopefully early next year,they make you feel part of a family from the managing director down.”
“Excellent service. Although novices, Whisper Emblem proved to be a fantastic boat for us. After fairly lengthy training we soon got reasonably confident at handling the boat whilst learning to manage the effects of the tidal waters. We soon relaxed and had a fantastic week cruising the broads. Many thanks for a great experience.”
