Fitting of an electric motor to the Hunter Fleet Millennium Yacht, Lucent

Lucent is a traditionally built Broads yacht available for hire and is part of the Norfolk Heritage Fleet Trust at Hunters Yard.

Currently none of the fleet has an engine. The fitting of the motor is designed to enhance its attraction to a wider range of customers, families and young people as well as to enable the more “senior”, traditional customers to continue to enjoy sailing whilst ensuring that the Broads’ special environment is protected.

An electric engine has been identified which will provide an eco-friendly power source to this traditional Broads boat.

Amount granted: £1,000
Applicant: Norfolk Heritage Fleet
Business sponsor: Roys of Wroxham have donated £400 from their Making a Difference Locally fund towards this project
