Our holiday prices are fully inclusive with no essential extras to pay, like diesel, gas, credit card charges and damage waiver, so we continue to offer the best boats on a beautiful canal at competitive all-inclusive prices.
This is a holiday designed for every member of the family. Canal boat hire (self-drive rental) brings the English countryside alive with the excitement and adventures of boating. English canals, especially the Grand Union Canal offer a real change from everyday routine and bring one in touch with a new unexpected England remote from main roads and railways, free from crowded and noisy roads; peaceful, pleasant and unspoilt. For those playing the new smartphone game Pokémon GO, travelling on a canal boat at 4 miles per hour is the ideal pace for catching those Pokémon!
Over the past 50 years many thousands of customers have found the fastest way of slowing down is to have a relaxing canal boat holiday with Wyvern Shipping. Indeed last year in excess of 70% of our trade came from previous clients and their recommendations. Even if you have no previous canal barge hire experience you will be surprised just how easy it is to become a confident skipper of your canal boat. (Some people call them 'barges', 'narrowboat', 'long boats' or 'charterboats'.)
All our narrowboats are purpose built by ourselves for easy and responsive handling and if you have any doubts over any aspect of waterway, canal or river cruising we can assist. At the start of their canal barge holidays all our hirers are taken for a free tuition boat trip by one of our experienced pilots and shown through a lock (sluice). Instruction continues until you are confident of how to handle your canal hire boat. This will ensure a most enjoyable and memorable canal boating holiday.
These 3 star boats have two separate sleeping areas. The lower berths in the rear cabin can convert to a double or triple child berth. 'Bullrush' has a shower bath, 'Willow' a shower tray.
