Hire a member of 'Percy's Lovely Ladies' in other words a lovely traditional sailing yacht. You need sailing experience to be able to handle one of these feisty ladies.
These traditional boats provide the experienced sailor and their passengers a very lively but elegant experience. Cruise the unspoilt rivers and Broads keeping an eye out for all the wildlife and relax on board one of these delightful boats.
Each boat has a lifting top and a full length awning to provide extra headroom andliving space. Each is equipped with cutlery, crockery, saucepans and bedding but bring your own sheets, towels and tea towels. Cooking is by gas and the lighting is by bulkhead oil lamps.
Sail back in time to a slower world with welcoming inns; experience excitement or stillness and serenity second to none on yachts that are truly ‘right’ for this world.
You will need to be an experienced helmsman to hire one of our craft and good dinghy sailors really enjoy sailing our ‘Lovely Ladies’. Our craftsman built mahogany on oak traditional gaff sloop rigs have a boomed, self tacking jib and come furnished with 6’ 2” single berths with ample storage beneath and in the well.
There are no engines; you are provided with a quant pole for your convenience.
