Self Drive Boat Hire in United Kingdom

Hire a self drive boat from us. ‘Comet’ is 40ft long, built in 2017, has an open viewing area at the front, has a stove & Oven, toilet and shower. The boat is easy to handle and if you are a beginner, not to worry, as instruction will be given. ‘Comet’ can take up to 12 persons if you have the necessary helming certificate, otherwise we can provide you with a ‘skipper’ for the day.  You can cruise North or South on the canal, passing through the rolling Oxfordshire country side, stop at the quaint village of Cropredy, visit the Pig Farm at Nell’s Bridge, let the children see the piglets, ducks and buy your pork sausages for the afternoon trip home! You will be amazed at just how peaceful and relaxing a day on the water can be. Turn that mobile phone off and simply listen to the water passing by and the birds. Enjoy the picnic that you have bought for the family, a bottle of chilled wine, strawberries and cream and you will not forget your wonderful day afloat in a hurry! If you wish your days cruising can be extended during the summer months. We can also do evening cruises during the summer from 5:30pm to 9pm.
