Boatyard Services and
Managed Moorings on the Broads

The Boatyard at Reedham


We are a family business that has the passion, expertise and desire to keep your boat in top condition. Andy Bale runs the yard and has some twenty years experience in boat restoration and repair. Having been a senior craftsman at Brooms in Brundall for ten years, and with previous experience of marine diesels and yachts, he can advise on any aspect of both motor yachts and more traditional broads sailing vessels either in wood or GRP.  We can call on a team of specialist tradesmen for electrical, hydraulic or instrumentation systems.


The yard is situated at the end of Holly Farm Road at Reedham, where the new cut from St Olaves joins the River Yare. We are around an hour's sailing time from both the sea at Great Yarmouth and Oulton broad at Lowestoft.
