We do hope that everyone likes the new website. We have a few little tweaks left to make but otherwise we’re very pleased. So book your Norfolk Broads boating holiday with us!
Great website big improvments over the old one in every way. Had a wonderful time on Pacific Princess last week must be the 20th time I have booked with you now and everytime the service has been spot on friendly, welcoming and VERY competitive pricing as always much better yard than the “big boys” always treated as people and not just numbers like some others do
Richard and Fiona
Well done great web site I hired Pacific Dawn last year and hopefully will be back later this year
love the new website looking forward to seeing you on the 8Th can’t wait will be great to be back on the water
Great new website and good to see a hire fleet displaying the air draft of the boats.Dave
looking forward to boating holiday week on pacific shadow on 8 th july. wondering how good the fishing might be?
Hi, love the new website. We have booked with you twice now and are looking to hire about next year. one of the best holidays ever.
Great new site, what a vast improvement. All looking forward to July 8 for our yearly pilgrimage, soo you soon, in fact tomorrow.
A good looking website well done. The new images do your boats greater justice. Always a friendly and helpful reception at ‘Pacific’ whether on the phone or turning up to ‘collect the boat’. Having used both Blakes & Hoseasons in the past it really does make a refreshing change to deal with a family business who put their customers first. May you continue to trade for years to come.
we all had a brill holiday last week, many thanks for the friendly welcome has usual hope to be back soon many thanks to you all at pacific cruisers
Pacific Cruisers were absolutely top notch from the nice boatyard, location, the attention to detail about the boat, it’s operation, the lesson, the knowledge of area etc. They were friendly, organized and I really appreciate the effort this family run business goes to.
We received a warm welcome from Fiona when we finally arrived an hr late from traffic. We did call to let them know, no problem. They had everything ready for us when we did get there. We were able to drive right in front of boat, unloaded our belongings and the lesson began right away. Michael did a superb job of letting us know everything we needed to know about Pacific Emerald during our holiday, showed us how everything worked, rigged us up w lifejackets (inc our dog), and soon we were on our way on almost an hr long lesson on operating the boat, mooring, ropes,etc
We set off after feeling confident we had the knowledge needed and Michael answering repeated questions, lol TY for your patience! I’m so glad Fiona steered us to the perfect boat for us 1st timers also! It was fine inside for us 3, hubby, myself and teen daughter along w pets. It was small enough to moor easily, operate and no problem w bridges etc. It was nice cruising right thru things while bigger boats waited, fit into moorings others couldn’t. I think if we had the bigger boat I was looking at would have just added to alot of stress, so great decision there Fiona! It was clean, had everything we needed, perfect boat really! Everything worked great.. I’ll miss you Pacific Emerald, til we meet again, sniff. Next time I’ll def get same boat, same company. Can’t freaking wait! TY for your expertise and for a perfect holiday on the Broads! X
Hi Richard and Fiona
I hope you have had a succesful season this year, from comments on other web sites are you selling Swift or is there a new Swift in the offing!
Hi Ray. Yes thank you we have had an excellent season and bookings are looking very good for 2012. And yes, we are selling Pacific Swift as we have purchased Lady Conway to replace her. I believe we will be naming her Pacific Conway. She is a new version and the bedroom is separated from the saloon. Best wishes Fiona
Thank you for your reply I am glad that you have had a good season hope next year is the same, It is good to see the changes to your fleet It alays keeps people interested when the fleet changes hopefully will be in a position to book again next year shortly
Pacific Cruisers is the best – FACT!
My wife and I have been holidaying on the Broads for over 30 years and have remained loyal to various boatyards until they closed. Our main criterion was always ‘value for money’ although finances often meant we had to get as ‘cheap’ as possible.
Richard and Fiona managed to combine the two.
It was probably some 6 or 7 years ago that we first ‘struck a deal’ hiring from Pacific Cruisers and since then we have earned the title of being either 1st or 2nd of their most regular customers. Most years we have hired ‘Moonlight’ on a number of ocassions although we have also hired Emerald, Princess, Imperial and Dawn as well as at least one boat that they no longer have. Moonlight has been our ‘staple’ and is great for two although I’d prefer Dawn for more than 1 couple. My absolue favourite is Imperial, the boat we hired when my sister and bro-in-law joined us last year. We/ve not hired the more recent acquisitions but I’m in no doubt that they will be up to the excellent standard that Richard and Fiona maintain.
Getting old and even ‘greyer’ and having come into a little money, I had to ‘fess up’ to Richard and Fiona that we were looking to buy our own boat – which we have now done. We now own a boat called ‘Crystal’, an ex-hire boat from Anchorcraft, and whilst we always honour the ‘waving’ etiquette to other boat users, we’ll always give an even more entusiastic wave to Pacific Cruisers hirers – look out for us – we intend to use our new baby regularly.
Richard and Fiona have been great about this and Pacific Cruisers will always be my first point of call for any maintenance or service requirements I have.
Be in no doubt – owning your own boat does not save you money. In our case it is just a luxury and a ‘dream’ that we have had for many years. If you want to ‘try’ boating on the Norfolk Broads or if you want a ‘regular’ hire service, then look no further than Pacific Cruisers. They’re not the newest boats on the Broads, but they are possibly the best maintained ones. We’ve hired what used to be called a ‘blue chip’ boat ftom a different company and it didn’t come near to the quality of Pacific Cruisers boats.
My message is. hire elsewhere, ONLY, if Pacific Cruisers can’t accommodate you and make sure that subsequent bookimgs allow you to use them.
In my early days of boating, I felt that boatyards affiliated to Blakes or Hoseasons made you feel as ‘tho they were doing YOU favour. Not so with Pacific Cruisers – this is a true independent and you’ll feel relaxed from the moment you arrive.
And ‘no’ – I don’t have ‘interest’ in Pacific Cruisers’ – I genuinely believe they are the best!

We Would like to thank Richard and Fiona for making our recent June 2012 our best ever. We have been visiting the broads on fishing trips for many years now and after a nightmare in February gone by another small company FREEDOM was very unsure about trying another smaller boat yard and stick to the larger well known company’s as we have done for many a year. We decided to give pacific a go and hire Pacific Shadow for week commencing 23rd June. This was without a doubt the best decision ever and we would recommend Pacific Cruisers to anyone who is looking for an onist reliable and excellent value for money broads experience.
Once again thanks guys and sorry but ul be sick of the sight of us now.
Billy n gang.
Just back from our second trip out with Pacific and had Dawn this time – brilliant boat – we cant decide if Star or Dawn was our favourite ! Very helpful and great facilities on arrival ie parking right next to boat. We hired in the north initially as a taster but since coming south of the broads we havnt looked back!
We will use them again and would recommend them to others on the hunt for a boating holiday !
thankyou richard and fionawas the best holiday on the broads we have had. We were on moonlight a very spaceios boat and one of the quietest we have had will be coming back to you soon we hope the trip to the yard is one of the easyest we have had and the welcome you get is second to none dave and chris
hi Fiona can’t wait to join you on the 14Th Alan is looking forward to his fishing which he loves on the broads you always make us welcome we had a great time last year with the daughter and son in law and grandchildren but this year we will be on our own . bliss can’t wait .
I don’t usually bother with things like Guest Books or Trip Advisor but in the case of our break with Pacific Cruisers I’m happy to make an exception. As 1st. Timers on the Broads (well apart from a very drunken stag weekend twenty-five or so years ago!) I now realise how much we struck lucky in choosing Pacific. It was a bit of a last minute decision to hire Princess for a week at the beginning of the school holidays but we didn’t come to regret it. The welcome on arrival from Fiona and Richard was great – with very efficient operation on what must have been a busy ‘hand-over’ day.
The boat itself was lovely & clean and it was well equipped to…..my favourite was the fold-up easy chair that could be taken up on deck to enjoy a book and a glass of wine after mooring up. The Princess certainly compared very favourably with most of the examples of the ‘big 2′s’ boats which we passed or moored next to during the week. It was also easy to manoeuvre – on a couple of occasions easily being squeezed stern-on into the last available berth at a staith. No doubt the calmly paced instructions and trial run during the hand-over also helped as well. I’m also glad that we followed Fiona’s suggestion to get a slightly bigger boat than we needed – the extra room worked very well with two hulking teenage boys, plus all their fishing gear.
I’d certainly join with others here in recommending Pacific Cruisers for a Broads holiday
