About This Boat


At 40’ long Phoenix is an extremely spacious hire boat, laid out as follows:
The upper deck is open and free of seats.The central deck is open apart from a narrow overhead structural beam. This area is fitted with bench seats along the full length. 4 x 1 metre cushions (2 each side) .The central deck is fitted with plastic roll down covers that can easily be lowered during inclement weather.

The galley contains the safety essentials: fire extinguishers and fire blanket. The controls are straightforward; a tiller for steering and a single control lever for forward gear, neutral, reverse gear and engine speed.


Cruise to beyond New Mills where there is a convenient ‘winding hole’ (turning place). This takes 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours, on average. Turn around and go back towards Whaley Bridge but take the arm of the canal that goes to Bugsworth. Here you will find a basin of historical importance and a popular pub/ eating place The Navigation. It’s then just half an hour back to Whaley Bridge.
