Boats built by us for your comfort


3, 4 & 5 Star In the same way as hotels,


narrowboats are awarded 1 to 5 stars by Visit Britain to indicate their quality, space and comfort.


As part of our commitment to


quality we invite Visit Britain to independantly grade our boats on an annual basis.


The star rating shown against


each boat is relevant for the occupancy shown. All equipment and furnishings


on a three, four and five star boat are the same.


as 4 berth On a five star boat the saloon is


not used for sleeping and no more than two crew sleep in any one cabin resulting in more space per person.


Carbon footprint Boating holidays have a low carbon


footprint and as a company Wyvern Shipping are able to further lower their footprint by using modern low emission Kabota diesel engines.


The engines are fitted with large


alternators to charge all the batteries while cruising. No generators are required when the main engine is not running. Fuel set is added to the diesel to ensure a clean burn.


The company has a policy of


employing local staff within walking distance of the yard. Even in the severest weather of November 2010 all members of staff were able to walk to work.
