Call us on: 0118 978 0717 or 07566 815456 to discuss your requirements.

Please note: A booking for Xmas week will only be taken for boaters with experience.

Please read and download our terms and conditions prior to booking. By agreeing to hire with us you must agree to accept the Terms and Conditions of hire before boarding the boat.

How we agree Insurance Cover: 

  • A fully refundable Damage Deposit of £250.00 is required before hire - The boat and its equipment and inventory are insured by the company against public liability risks. But the company's insurance does not cover personal accidents on-board or loss or damage to your personal effects. Hirers are strongly advised to take out their own personal insurance cover or check with your insurer that you're covered by holiday insurance for accidents and losses.
  • The damage deposit does NOT cover us 'the Company' for damage arising from speeding, reckless use, malicious or intentional damage to the boat, or to other boats and or property, or loss or damage of boat inventory and equipment over the value of £250. The late return of a boat or return of the boat in an unclean condition is also not covered by the damage deposit. The Hirer will agree to indemnify the company against all costs, damage, expenses, liability and claims howsoever arising from the negligence, neglect or default of the Hirer to the extent that they are not covered by the company's policy.
  • The £250 Damage Deposit paid by bank transfer along with the deposit at the booking stage and is refunded to you at the end of your holiday, after the craft has been checked and provided that you return the boat and it's equipment on time, undamaged, clean and without any third party claims against you.

Please Note: if the boat is returned late on the return day we reserve the right to charge an extra day's equivalent hire fee - unless of course if it is for reasons outside your control.

P.S If you're looking for a booze cruise, there are plenty of boat operators on other rivers that will happily fulfil your needs but we're not the boat for you, sorry.
