Private Boat Hire


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I want to get on the water for 2 nights from Friday June 10th till Sunday 12th.

Hiring from the main companies is soooooooooo expensive just 4 the 2 days or should I say 2 nights. 

Has any or does anyone one know of anyone who hires boats at a reasonable price for 2 nights? 

It for myself,  my partner, and a small dog if that's okay. .

Any ideas?

In order to offer any boat for hire, you need a licence. To get a licence, you need to pass various "tests" including having the appropriate insurance and paying a commercial hire toll.

Boat hire is sooooooo expensive to run.

But, take a look at pod. Simple boat, basic facilities, camping-like experience. Just £120 overnight right now.

Cheaper boats are around, if you are happy to keep it small and simple!  The more luxury and goodies you want, the more it will cost, obviously.  Always worth ringing yards like Maycraft or Martham to see if anything is available at short notice - within reason, they would be happier to hire a boat to someone, for something, rather than to no-one for nothing!  I was with James May yesterday and Mayfair might well be free, although I know it is out this weekend - they are not that busy yet.
