Eastwood Whelpton have a fleet of 16 yachts that are suited to sailing on the rivers and lakes that make up The Broads, and we will have a yacht that will meet your needs in terms of size of accommodation, comfort and sailing ability.
Have a browse to learn about our fleet, search for availability and book online if you wish or feel free to call us and chat about your requirements so that we can find the right boat and holiday for you.
Our half-decker yachts are classic wooden open day boats, all nearly 100 years old and are all part of the long standing Broads racing fleets. They are gunter rigged keel boats of 22ft length that will delight experienced sailors but are also ideal to learn on with the support of an Instructor from our Sailing School.
“We had a fantastic trip aboard Windjammer. The staff at Eastwood Whelpton were very helpful and the boat was clean and tidy on arrival. All social distancing was maintained as we did the introduction before setting sail.”
“Best way to unwind… in the wind! After the fun and excitement of arriving and setting sail, you can feel life’s pressures falling away. Eastwood Whelpton is a lovely family owned boatyard on the beautiful Norfolk Broads. A short stay gives you just enough time to sail up to Hickling and Horsey, two lovely sailing destinations, where you can experience life at a pace it is meant to be. Cannot wait until we go again!”

“So good we went twice summer 2020! Lovely friendly yard, great service, boats well kept and in good condition. Ropes replaced when getting worn, which is so important for enjoying sailing. Goodie bag and pint of milk in the fridge on arrival – they really take care of you.”

“Wonderful family sailing on the Broads. Eastwood Whelpton are an extremely friendly and professional team and this year also offering a very Covid-aware service, along with their traditional warm welcome. Just boarding begins to replenish the soul and a week aboard is life enhancing.”
