How much does hiring a Norfolk Broads boat cost?
Example cost breakdown
Fair Regal - a 6 berth cruiser from Faircraft in Wroxham
7 nights commencing 9th June 2017
This is the amount you pay to take over the boat for your chosen duration.
It includes the provision of gas bottles for cooking, heating, refrigerator and hot water where appropriate. (Most boats refrigerator’s and hot water are electric). On-board electricity is included as it is provided by batteries charged by the boat's engine.
£100.00 FUEL DEPOSIT
The fuel deposit represents a payment towards the value of the diesel. When you takeover the boat, the diesel tank will be filled. Upon returning the boat, the tank will be "dipped" to ascertain how much fuel has been used. A calculation is then made to work out the value against the fuel deposit you paid. Any refund due will be made to you at that time. In most cases the diesel used will be covered by your fuel deposit. However, should the value of the diesel exceed the fuel deposit you will be charged the difference.
£40.00 DAMAGE WAIVER
The damage waiver fee is an insurance to protect you should the boat be damaged. This is compulsory and is not refundable.
£41.00 PERSONAL INSURANCE
This is optional and you may decline it if you so wish. The charge is per boat not per person. Cover is afforded for damaged, lost or stolen personal goods. Cover is also provided should you cause damage to a private boat. Experienced skippers are less likely to take it but for first-timers it is clear the risk is higher. Breakdown cover is also included
£1251.00 TOTAL COST
A deposit, appropriate to the number of people the boat will accommodate, is payable at the time of booking. The balance of the money is due 8 weeks before your holiday begins. Full payment is required for bookings made within 8 weeks of arrival.
