Goosander is a Norfolk Broads boat share syndicate cruiser, based at Horning on the Northern rivers of the Broads. Welcome to our website.


She is owned by 13 shareholders. To enter the syndicate you need to purchase a share - currently £5,500, which entitles the owner to 4 weeks onboard Goosander per year. These are allocated by a draw which takes place at an annual meeting. As the draw is segmented, owners are guaranteed one week in each of the four seasons. From time to time, shares become available and these are entered for sale on the adjacent noticeboard.

Once you purchase a share, the ongoing costs are to keep the boat in tip-top condition and to pay for permanent moorings at Boulters Marine in Horning. Currently, the members pay £230 per quarter for this, which includes servicing, moorings, and breakdown rescue costs. Re-fuelling, toilet pump-out and cleaning the boat after your holiday is not included, and is completed by the current occupants before vacating.

Once purchased, you own a share of the boat, and can re-sell it at any time for whatever the market value is.

Goosander has a full inventory of everything you are likely to need whilst onboard including pots. pans, crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen utensils. However bedding, pillows, towels and tea towels are not included and you are expected to bring your own.

Other pages on the site detail what you will find on Goosander, with lots of images. Please take a look at our lovely boat. If all this sounds "right up your street" and if there are currently shares available to purchase, please make contact and we will be pleased to arrange a viewing. If shares are not currently available, you can register a no obligation interest, by completing the form on this page. We will then contact you on a preferential basis should a share become available.
