Len Funnell, owner of the Norfolk Broads boating holiday company, said: 'The Norfolk Broads are such an important part of our lives here and it's always been a passion of mine to work to preserve this landscape for future generations.

'One of the unique features of the Broads is its peace and tranquillity and now you can completely immerse yourself in it without the constant chug of the diesel engine – it makes such a difference to how you see and hear the wildlife on the Broads.'

The Whisper Emblem has been built by Ferry Marina's team of boat builders at their marina in Horning.

It is the first electric boat developed by the firm and features solar panels and a low wash hull.
