We have seven narrow dayboats from Sydney wharf and seven electric dayboats from Brassknocker Basin available for half day or full day hire in 2016.

All the boats can carry up to six people whilst others can carry up to twelve people. Some of the boats have sleeping accommodation for 1 - 4 people.
The boats are available all year round, seven days a week and are self drive. A skipper can be hired at an extra cost of £100 should you not want to steer the boat yourselves.

Our boats are essentially all self drive narrowboats but some have different internal configurations, passenger capacity and boat length.
For this reason we have classed the boats 'A' - FLAGSHIP SPECIAL Overnight, 'B' - PREMIER OVERNIGHT, 'C' - SUPREME, 'D' - SUPER class, 'E' - FUN class & 'F' ELECTRIC class.

'A' - FLAGSHIP SPECIAL (OVERNIGHT) CLASS - " SWEET CAROLINE " From £ 150 No dogs allowed ( Based @ Sydney Wharf, Bath ) NOT AVAILABLE AT THE MOMENT

For a special occasion, for an exclusive experience, for someone special or simply to have one of the best boats on the canal then the Sweet Caroline will deliver the ultimate dream day out.
Sweet Caroline has been designed to stylishly sleep four people for one, two or three nights or more in total luxury. It is very popular with hirers who would like to spend a longer day on the canal, ideal for a weekend or just a couple of days. It can only sleep four but as a dayboat it can easily take up to ten passengers.
As a dayboat you will find a beautifully fitted out real oak wood interior, a boutique bathroom with toilet, a wet room with a hot/cold shower, a high gloss black contemporary kitchen with oven, hob, fridge/ freezer, microwave, utensils and a dinette to seat six or more. This table converts into a double bed when required allowing you to choose between two single beds or a double bed. There is a 19 " television / DVD for further entertainment. The front has a classic set of bespoke solid oak bi-fold doors that open outwards allowing you to enjoy the full vista and outdoors.

Our narrow boats are purpose built, have recently been completely refurbished and designed with your comfort and safety in mind. The front deck has bench seats for warm days, central heating for those cooler ones as well as hot and cold running water and a fresh water flushing toilet.
