Welcome to the official web site of the River Cruiser Class, the organisation for owners of traditional cabin yachts, indigenous to the Norfolk Broads.

The class consists of over 400 inland waterways sailing yachts, designed specifically and exclusively for cruising and racing the Broads network of lakes and rivers in Norfolk and North Suffolk.

Of these river cruisers, several are over 100 years old, and over 150 were built before 1940.

The Class is not however confined to a vintage and veteran boat collection, with a large proportion of registered yachts built in the past 20 years, and new class yachts are regularly launched every few years.

The site has two functions:

  • It serves to co-ordinate and inform the River Cruiser Class membership
  • It is a reference portal for the 200 year history of Broads yachting, together with the unique racing craft and leisure industry to which it has given birth.

Our Facebook page contains lots of regular updates including race notices, regatta photos & regular updates for members. https://www.facebook.com/rivercruiserclass/
