Broads Reviews

From arrival to departure the team were knowledgable helpful and professional. The boat we had was fantastic Fair Monarch. It was clean, well maintained and comfortable. This is the first year we have had an elevated steering position and we found it makes a huge difference for seeing all around you above the reed beds. We would highly recommend Broads Direct for their service and quality of boats and we look forward to our next holiday with them.
