Latest News & Canal Information

Introducing our brand new boat, Moonshine.

Our new boat, Moonshine will be available from early 2015. This new boat is built with couples in mind, sleeping up to four (2+2). As with all of our new canal boats, we aim to exceed your expectations of a luxury canal boat experience. Newly built boats book up quickly so if you would like to secure your holiday please get in touch.

Our bespoke canal boats have been designed and built by us to offer the very best in on-board luxury and are the best way to experience the wonderful surroundings of the area - we really have taken luxury canal boat hire to the next level! In fact, our boats have been awarded a 5 star rating from leading tourist advisors Visit Britain and Quality in Tourism.

Our boats have:

Free standing furniture
King size beds with feather duvets
Jacuzzi whirlpool bath
Full size showers
Fully equipped galley kitchen
Entertainment system

The canal boats available to hire also have extra headroom and plenty of space to move around thanks to the widebeam construction. This makes our 10ft wide boats around 3ft wider than an ordinary narrow boat, a difference that means you can cruise in sublime comfort. As well as the extra space, the width makes these boats extremely stable, and much easier to steer.

Did you know that no previous experience is needed for a luxurious canal boat holiday?

You'll be surprised how easy it is to navigate the Kennet and Avon Canal in one of our boats, but we are on hand to show you how to handle your boat until you are comfortable to set off unaided. We will cover steering and manoeuvring as well as a few safety tips for your stay on board. However, should you need our help or advice, we are available at any time of day or night to help you - just give us a call.

We can arrange for something as simple as having groceries delivered to your chosen location along the canal to organising private dining - a gourmet dinner to be served on your boat!
