Named after some of Wales' most spectacular castles, our holiday hire narrowboats offer a choice of sizes, number of berths and even propulsion. Castle Narrowboats have operated both diesel narrowboats and electric narrowboats for over 20 years.
For the greener option experience the tranquility of an electric narrowboat, the only electric narrowboats for hire in the UK. With a quiet engine you can cruise the canal and be at peace with your surroundings. Our electric boats cover 18 miles on a single charge, so you don't need to recharge the narrowboat every night. Even when you do have to charge the boat it's very simple - just plug in and switch on. The rest is automatic and it will be completely recharged overnight. The moorings for the charging points are reserved for electric boats and they are carefully situated where holidaymakers would usually stop and are close to amenities. Click to see map. We think our boats are really quiet, so do our hirers. Try one yourself for a quieter and more environmentally friendly narrowboat holiday.
Each of our excellent narrowboats is well designed with central heating, radio CD player, colour television, DVD, hot & cold water to the shower, basin and sink. The galley area has a full size cooker, fridge, sink and a comprehensive inventory. Co-ordinating bedding is provided either in the form of double duvets or single sleeping bags. The boats are thoroughly cleaned and maintained before you arrive to ensure you enjoy your narrowboat holiday with us.
A comprehensive briefing is always provided and we will take time to make sure you are happy before we leave you.
Just a quickie to say how much my son and I enjoyed our week on Beaumaris Castle. We have tried many boats over the years but the silence of an electric boat was amazing and I would recommend one of these to even the most experienced canal boaters. The canal is very picturesque and charging up now and again is no problem at all. The boat was the best we have had in all ways.
