Quality graded canal boats

We are committed to providing you with a high quality boating holiday and guest care experience. Our Self Assessment Quality Grading Scheme for hire boats classifies each boat into one of five quality ratings where Five Stars is the highest award and One Star the lowest.

The criteria used is very similar to other well known star grading schemes so that you can be assured of a consistent quality standard.

We endeavour to ensure that the pricing and booking conditions are clear and straightforward in order to provide you with good information to help you make the best choice of holiday.
