The Holiday . . . with a difference


The All-Weather Holiday Perfect weather helps any holiday.


Unfortunately we can only guarantee the boat and not the weather, but even in wet or cold conditions our boats have ample room inside with large sliding or hopper windows and full central heating. The open-front cockpits are able to seat all


the crew in comfort for outdoor meals, and the rear deck has seats for the helmsman and crew. We are often complimented on our very comfortable cockpits and steering position. Canal cruising has something for everyone


whether you are an artist, fisherman, walker, helmsman, lock operator or out to sample the local ale in the many canal-side pubs. People are always friendly on the canals


and good company can be enjoyed at the locks and villages. We hope you will discover good food, drink


and entertainment to make the perfect holiday whether it be wet or fine.


Parasols, Umbrellas & Fans During the hotter months of June, July and


August all our boats are fitted with fans in the saloon and removable parasols in the forward cockpits. What more pleasant way to spend a sunny


day than to sit in the front cockpit shaded by a parasol watching the world go by?


Wet Weather For wet weather all boats carry a set of


waterproofs and an umbrella. The umbrella can be used to shelter the


helmsman from both sunshine or rain. All boats have an airing cupboard for


drying clothes and at least one heated wardrobe.


Novices Even if you have no


previous boating experience you will be surprised just how easy it is to become a confident skipper of your narrow boat. All the boats are purpose


built for easy and responsive handling. If you have any doubts


over any aspect of canal boating we will do our best to assist. All our hirers are taken


for a free tuition cruise by an experienced instructor at the start of their holiday and shown through a lock. Instruction continues


until you are confident of how to handle the boat and work the locks to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We also send hirers the


Boater’s handbook and DVD which covers all aspects of good boating and safe canal cruising.
