Want to learn more about us?

As the longest-standing boat hire company on the canals, boasting over 75 years of operation, we take pride in our legacy. Still family-owned and operated by the Wyatt family, our dedication remains unwavering. Offering a warm and welcoming service, we cater to a diverse range of customers, including overseas visitors and novices, with a special emphasis on pet-friendly accommodations.

Nestled in the heart of Stone, a charming market town, our picturesque boatyard serves as the perfect starting point for canal boat holiday adventures. Conveniently accessible by both road and rail, Stone sits at the hub of the canal network, providing a plethora of route options.

Your peace of mind is paramount to us. With ample open-air parking and security measures in place, we ensure the safety of your vehicle throughout your stay. While all vehicles are left at the owners’ risk, rest assured that we prioritize safeguarding your property.

Planning your canal boat holiday is a breeze with our comprehensive resources. From route mapping to boat selection, you can comfortably make arrangements from the comfort of your home. However, should you prefer a more hands-on approach, our doors are open for visits and consultations. Drop by Monday to Friday between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, or on Saturdays (in the summer months) from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Alternatively, reach out to us anytime using our convenient online form.

Once onboard, you’ll find everything you need for a comfortable journey. Our boats are meticulously outfitted and equipped to the highest standards, ensuring a seamless experience. From bedding essentials to kitchen supplies, we’ve got you covered. Upon arrival, we provide thorough instruction on boat handling, including navigation tips and safety protocols. With our straightforward gear system and precise tiller steering, mastering the basics typically takes just a brief session. Whether you’re tackling locks or navigating waterways, our team is here to support you every step of the way.
