City Boats offers a comprehensive fleet of self-drive day boats and cruisers. These fleets are available for hire from our marina at Griffin Lane, Norwich. Please click here for a map of how to find us. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ONLY TAKE BOOKINGS FOR FULL DAY HIRE, OTHERWISE BOATS ARE LET ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS

You can enjoy skippering one of our boats to relax and explore the rivers and broads of Norfolk.

self-drive day boat hireOur day boats are great for shorter jaunts. Norwich city centre is about an hour's cruise from our marina. You could also take a river trip in the countryside, along to picturesque Bramerton, or Surlingham or beyond. Our friendly staff are always happy to advise you on where to go and what to see.

A City Boats cruiser is the perfect way to explore further. Designed for comfort - some of our cruisers have four poster beds! - our boats enable you to take the journey you want, at a pace to suit you.

For that special occasion we can host your celebration on our unique private charter vessel, 'Princess Elizabeth'. We also have a selection of Showboat evenings.

We also offer a range of daily scheduled river trips from 20 minutes to 3¾ hours, leaving from two quays in Norwich, and at Griffin Lane, Thorpe St Andrew..

City Boats has generations of experience in providing safe, enjoyable boating.
