Wherry Hathor On View

    Hathor, the beautiful Egyptian-themed pleasure wherry built in 1905, will once again be moored at How Hill Staithe this summer. For much of this time she will be open for free viewing. Please contact Wherry Yacht Charter with enquiries.

    How To Sail A Wherry

      Wherries were once a common sight on the Broads, but now only eight of these iconic boats remain. This enjoyable and relaxing holiday offers an opportunity to sail the pleasure wherry Hathor. After practical demonstrations and training, you can help raise and lower the sail and mast, assist with mooring and quanting and, of course, take the helm. Or if that sounds too energetic you can always let the crew take care of the hard work while you enjoy the view with tea and cake. The price includes full board accommodation, all sailings and illustrated evening talks.

      £425 per person
