Boat hire

Your canal boat: your home on the water!

As captain of your own canal boat, you'll be living in, and driving, your personal cruiser. Don't worry, these boats are very easy to operate; you don't need any license or experience! Think about your river cruiser as your home on the water, fully equipped with all the amenities of home, including a large and well decored interior.

Our boat classifications

Excellent standards of customer service, cleanliness and support come with all boats - whatever the rating!

Premier

We award our premier category only to the very newest boats in our fleet – our Horizon range. These were designed exclusively by Le Boat, for Le Boat, and boast an impressively spacious top deck area, with barbecue hotplate and cool box as standard. The saloon and kitchen areas are light and spacious with over-sized windows and both front and rear thrusters make mooring and manoeuvring a breeze.

Comfort Plus & Comfort

Boat classification comfort plus iconsmall Boat classification comfort iconsmall

Good-quality, stylish and well-equipped boats of varying ages, designs and styles. All Comfort and Comfort Plus boats have electric-flush toilets and the ability to hook up to a shore power supply as standard. Comfort plus is awarded to the newer of these boats which are generally more spacious and have more features than the Comfort category - such as BBQ hotplates and deck seat cushions as standard.

Budget

Boat classification budget vsmall

These older boats are our ‘much-loved classics’. Although the décor is more traditional and the features and fittings are quite basic, they are clean, superbly maintained and are equipped with all the essentials for a comfortable stay – including bed linen and towels.

We have over 50 boat types
