Boat Hire Reviews

"As seasoned hirers of narrowboats, we enjoyed the extra space afforded by a semi-wide boat. The shower is one of the best. Good sized TVs and wi-fi in most areas. The Lancaster Canal is a little gem with plenty of great views." 30/04/22

Boat Building Reviews
"Kevin, Mick, Martin and the team at Pintail boats built our beautiful new home Ubuntu. We continuously cruise in London and had been living on a small narrow boat. From our initial email enquiring about the possibility of them helping us to build a new home they were very supportive of our ideas, and we really appreciated them giving us so much time to talk through our plans.
Throughout the build they remained incredibly supportive and accommodating. They instilled a real sense of confidence. Nothing was too much trouble and they always took the time to listen to us and understand what was important to us"
Jeremy Bortz & Catherine Tullett - Ubuntu
"Pintail were an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Kevin, Shaun and their team helped us to develop a completely bespoke brief for our live-aboard widebeam, agreed the contract and involved us closely throughout the build.
Their experience, practical advice and collaborative style helped us to get far more than we thought we could for our budget. The quality of the boat has stood the test of time and we are still living happily aboard five years later!
Andy & Liv - Lune Dolphin
"Pintail were unique amongst the boatbuilders we met in their enthusiasm for working with the design we brought to them, rather than applying customisations to a standard template. As a result, they were able to create a truly unique boat for us, taking our dream design from graph paper and turning it into reality. It was always a pleasure to visit during the build, Kevin made sure we were welcome at any time, and he and the team were brilliant at helping us refine our design ideas to ensure everything worked together. We've been on the water for over two years now, and covered nearly 1000 miles of waterway - through all that our boat Rebellion has been more than up to the challenge of everything we're thrown at her, from tidal rivers to shallow canals."
