Second trip this year. Nice day boats with clean electrical motors. Easy and fun to drive. We travelled upstream through Windsor to Maidenhead. Completely hashed most licks but no one minds and it is all part of the fun. The scenery is interesting and beautiful.

With the holiday boats, you pay for what you use at the end of your holiday. All of our boats have enough fuel on-board to last 2 weeks and some carry enough for 3 weeks. The fuel is included in our day boats.
