Broom offers a stunning Norfolk Broads location for your new Waterlodge

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Broom Boats, based on the beautiful Norfolk Broads, to provide you with a picturesque new location for our range of luxury crafts. Broom has a strong heritage in the area and now has impressive ambitions to become net-zero with their Green10 Sustainability commitment. In addition, they have recently introduced a range of environmentally friendly initiatives and a fantastic new café, to ensure visitors enjoy as unspoilt and natural experience as possible. Where better could you consider basing your new Waterlodge apartment?

Broom’s heritage in boatbuilding

Broom Boats of Brundall, was established in 1898, and is one of the oldest boat yards on the Norfolk and South Broads. They have a strong history in boatbuilding and provide a small number of moorings at their marina on the South Broads. Their future focus is on protecting the Broads environment, community, and wildlife, whilst opening up the area to visitors and holidaymakers.

We couldn’t think of a better partner to entrust in selling our range of high-quality and contemporary Waterlodge luxury crafts.

Encouraging sustainability

Broom’s Green10 policy for Sustainability has been born from a desire to protect the Broads and its biodiversity for generations to come. They have committed to introduce several initiatives, such as the:

– Installation of solar and micro wind generators on-site,

– Installation of ground and air source heat pumps to provide heat and hot water to the marina,

– Recycling of as much wastewater as possible,

– Improvement of the marina biodiversity by working with Natural England,

– Purchase of additional energy from renewable sources,

– Switch to using electric boats for day and holiday hire, and

– Investment in low carbon leisure facilities, such as electric car charging.

Community initiatives

In February 2022, Broom was ‘Highly Commended’ in the 2022 Apprenticeships Norfolk Awards. As part of their membership to the 5% Club, they have committed at least 5% of their workforce coming from apprentices within five years, ensuring the preservation of heritage craft skills among the next generation.

Other community projects have included a pop-up cinema to raise money for Access Community Trust and providing space to Men’s Shed charity.

Customisable apartments

As the sole dealer of our luxury crafts, Broom is well placed to look after all your requirements and needs when considering one of our Waterlodge vessels. Their understanding of good quality construction and marina living will help alleviate any queries you might consider.

They can advise on the finer details of your bespoke requirements, the type of heating and décor, and whether you will require a compact studio Waterlodge One, up to the most spacious Waterlodge Six with potential for up to four bedrooms! Additionally, you can receive a wealth of knowledge about the local area and community, to ensure the move to waterside living is as seamless as possible.

Whether you are looking to retire to the waterside, have a weekend bolthole to relax and recoup from the weekly stresses of life or have a place to holiday regularly with the children or friends, the Norfolk Broads provides wonderful setting to make these dreams become a reality.
