2016 BOAT HIRE PRICES are as follows :

Our selection of diesel narrow day boats from Sydney Wharf carry a maximum of 6 - 12 persons depending on which one is hired.
Our selection of electric day boats from Brassknocker Basin carry a maximum of 1 - 12 persons depending on which one is hired.

PLEASE NOTE : Your dayboat hire is NOT booked until your deposit has been processed. Therefore, we offer our boats depending on availibility and a first come first served basis. ( The early bird catches the worm in other words! )
A current valid credit card ( no debit cards accepted ) will be needed on the day of hire.
A damage deposit of £250 for family parties will be pre-authorised on a credit card when you hire the boat. It will be returned to you provided the dayboat is returned clean and on time without a third party claim against you.
All single sex parties or parties with alcohol will have to lodge a £ 500 security deposit by cash or credit card at the time of check in ( refundable when the boat is returned clean & undamaged ). Please be aware that we reserve the right to charge a cleaning fee of £ 50 if the boat is returned in an unhireable state, a charge for damage to the boat, missing inventory or the boat is returned later than the agreed hire period. Where damage occurs to a third party boat, we will endeavour to obtain an estimate for repairs and where possible use our facilities to repair the damage to keep costs down.
Dogs & Pets are welcome except on the Lady Victoria and are charged at £ 25 per short break and £ 35 per week ( Maximum 2 per boat )
VAT, diesel fuel, gas & water are all included in the hire.

If you feel, you'd rather not steer the boat then we can supply a skipper who will accompany your party at an extra cost.
( Please note, the skipper counts as one of your party i.e 9 + skipper if hiring a ten person boat )
Half day hire skipper £ 75
Full day skipper £ 100
