2020 DAYBOAT HIRE PRICES are as follows :

Our selection of diesel narrow dayboats from Sydney Wharf carry a maximum of 10 - 12 persons depending on which one is hired.

Our selection of electric dayboats from Brassknocker Basin carry a maximum of 1 - 10 persons depending on which one is hired.

PLEASE NOTE : Your dayboat hire is NOT booked until your deposit has been processed. Therefore, we offer our boats depending on availability and a first come first served basis. ( The early bird catches the worm in other words! )

A current valid debit or credit card will be needed on the day of hire.

A damage deposit of £500 for family parties will be pre-authorised on a credit or debit card when you hire the boat. It will be returned to you provided the dayboat is returned clean and on time without a third party claim against you.

All celebratory parties or parties with alcohol will have to lodge a £ 1000 security deposit by credit or debit card at the time of check in ( refundable between 7-10 working days from when the boat is returned clean & undamaged ).

Please be aware that we reserve the right to charge a cleaning fee of £ 50 if the boat is returned in an unhireable state, a charge for damage to the boat, missing inventory or the boat is returned later than the agreed hire period.

Where damage occurs to a third party boat, we will endeavour to obtain an estimate for repairs and where possible use our facilities to repair the damage to keep costs down.

VAT, diesel fuel, gas & water are all included in the hire.

If you feel, you'd rather not steer the boat then we can supply a skipper (subject to availability) who will accompany your party at an extra cost.
( Please note, the skipper counts as one of your party i.e 9 + skipper if hiring a ten person boat )
Full day skipper £ 100

Depending on where you collect the boat from and daylight hours crusing you could potentially get to The George at Bathhampton, Dundas Aqueduct for Lunch at the Angelfish Restaurant, The CrossGuns pub at Avoncliff or other eating places at Bradford on Avon. We will give you more details on where you could get to when you collect the boat.

Our boats are essentially all self drive narrowboats but some have different internal configurations, passenger capacity and boat length.
