About Martham Ferry Boat Hire

About Nick and Alison Highton, owners of Martham Ferry Boatyard.


We are Nick and Alison Highton, we purchased Martham Ferry Boat Yard in 2017 and have just completed our first full season running the day boats.

Our aim is to have an all-electric fleet of boats. The first electric day boats went out on hire in July 2017. We have been delighted with how quiet and powerful they are, customers have enjoyed them so much that they come back a second time on a weeks holiday!

We will have completed our 12 seater picnic boat by mid 2019, look out for the media coverage. She is super quiet and low wash, perfect for looking after the wildlife and the environment!

We look forwards to welcoming you to our peaceful part of the Broads!
