A boat owners club will be marking its 20th anniversary with a river pageant over the May bank holiday weekend.

Boasting a fleet of more than 40 boats, the Broom Owners Club will be setting sail from south of the Tingdene Marina in Brundall.

Sailing in boats all manufactured by Norfolk-based company, Broom Boats, the pageant will continue its journey past the boatyard and up to the Ferry House at Surlingham before re-tracing its steps.

Made-up of an array of different models, built over years of production, this spectacle is a nod to Norfolk artisanship.

It serves to promote boating, the Broads area, and water-based recreational activities.

Broom Boats, established in Brundall in 1898 and helmed by Martin Broom MBE from 1964 to 2010, spearheaded the construction transition from wood to fibreglass hulls.

The Broom Owners Club, formed in 2004, is representative of the enduring legacy of the boat-making company.

  • The river pageant will take place over two days from May 25. Visit the website broomowners.com for more details.
