Fancy a longer trip discovering much more of our waterways? Want a bit more space? Are you thinking of a life afloat?

Long Term Barge Hire complements our Long Term Narrowboat Hire offer. Merryweather will be based with White Horse Boats on the Kennet & Avon Canal as she is a wide beam craft.

From her own private mooring on the summit at Burbage, Merryweather offers diverse cruising possibilities covering all of the K&A Canal – west to Bristol Harbour and/or east to Reading – and the whole of the River Thames down to Teddington taking in everything from the head of navigation at Lechlade through Oxford, Pangbourne, Henley, Marlow, Windsor right down to Hampton Court and Teddington. You can also visit the tranquil Wey Navigations to Guildford and the beautiful Basingstoke Canal as far as Ash Vale.

Accommodation includes a spacious Master Bedroom at the front of the boat, a glamorous bathroom with large quadrant shower, and a substantial living area with contemporary galley leading to the generous stern deck.

Two extra visitors can be accommodated on the bed-sofa and a third on the main sofa too, but she’s really designed for luxurious cruising for two…..

Merryweather will be available to hire, from March 2022, on a monthly basis, or multiples thereof, starting on the 6th of the month. Rates start at Β£3250 for March or October – rising to Β£6950 for the peak months of June – September. Multiple months attract a discount with a full one year hire at Β£3000pcm.

More details of Merryweather will be posted here soon. For all enquiries and bookings please contact David directly on 07470 449009
