Day Boat Hire
Enjoy a day out aboard one of our day hire boats.
Our day boats are all similar semi traditional style narrow boats, 32 foot long by 6 foot 10 inches wide and powered by smooth running modern diesel engines and carry maximum of ten people. They are designed with enclosed seating in the main saloon and also outside seating in the forward well deck.
Our day boats are suitable for all ages and dogs are welcome to join you for the day.
For special occasions you are welcome to decorate the boats with balloons and banners. One of your party are welcome to arrive early to do this, but we request that you use blu tack or low tack masking tape rather than sellotape which damages the paintwork and varnish on the boats (suitable materials are available to purchase from our shop upon arrival).
