We hired a pair of half deckers for a sailing weekend. These vintage boats were beautifully prepared and maintained and equipped to a far higher standard than we have experienced elsewhere. The team at the boatyard were very welcoming and helpful too. Top marks and...More

I think we've had six holidays with Eastwood Whelpton, and I can't recommend them highly enough. We've not used them yet with the new ownership, but we will be doing so. The boats are always beautifully cared for, and immaculately clean. We've sailed on Tempest,...More

Fantastic experience, couldn't meet a friendlier bunch. The instructor, Jimmy, was brilliant. A true passion for sailing on the broads and a font of knowledge about the waterways and local history. Brilliant with the kids too.

This family-run firm has recently changed hands, but remains a friendly, well-run, flexible service. Sailing a yacht on the Broads is such a enjoyable experience - usually tranquil with the odd bit of excitement to keep you looking forward to the next place. Annie was...More
