Narrowboats For Hire

At Wyvern Shipping we have developed narrowboats especially for the family canal boating holiday. So why not hire a barge and cruise the waterways and discover for yourself the excitement of holiday boating that a self-drive hire boat will offer?

All the boats have been designed and built in our own workshops beside the Grand Union Canal at Leighton Buzzard.

There is over 2000 miles of canals and rivers crossing the length and breadth of England for you to explore by holiday narrowboat.

Tunnels to cruise through, aqueducts to navigate over and English pubs to visit for a glass of ale and a boatman’s lunch.

Canal cruising on Wyvern Shipping narrowboats has something for everyone, whether you are an artist, birdwatcher, rambler, walker, cyclist, and combines boating with a little gentle exercise working the locks while cruising some of the most beautiful and diverse English countryside, villages and towns.

Why not come on a Wyvern narrowboat for a boat trip or short break canal holiday?
