Coming soon...

Take a trip around Overton Lake in our new electrically-powered boat! The new electrically-powered boat for the Park will replace the previously diesel-powered boat that used to provide passenger trips around Overton Lake at Ferry Meadows. The batteries used to power the new boat will be charged using electricity provided through a green energy tariff, as part of the Trust’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and respond to a climate emergency.

30-45 minute trips will be offered for up to 12 passengers around Overton Lake and out onto the River Nene. To ensure this tranquil experience is available to all, the boat will have an accessible lift enabling up to 2 wheelchair users on board. The service will be run at weekends and during school holidays. In addition, bespoke trips will also be developed for special occasions and corporate groups, providing a unique view of the Park and an inspiring experience on the water.

Tickets will be available from the Visitor Centre and from the boat itself.

The boat was made by Norfolk boat builders Landamores, who have been building boats in Wroxham and Hoveton
since 1923. The boat is an Edwardian styled Frolic 31 launch, made by combining new and traditional manufacturing methods and the highest quality of materials and workmanship.

Many thanks go to the various funders who have enabled us to purchase this electric boat:
