Stort Daybreak is used exclusively for day hire and joined our fleet in 2007.

She is 55ft long and 12ft 6in wide, and will accommodate 12 passengers on a day trip. She is so spacious that this number may include 6 wheelchair users.

She has a disability access toilet, with changing bench, shower, hoist and adjustable height washbasin as well as a wheelchair accessible galley (kitchen).

She also has a day bed with hoist and is equipped with a ramp and lift to ensure full participation by wheelchair users.

Stort Daybreak is the ideal boat for a short group outing, whether you want to relax and watch the scenery and wildlife or just to cruise the river and have a picnic or stop off at a pub for lunch.
