Testimonials

We hired the boat to celebrate our dad's 70th birthday. We had an age range from 4 to 70 and we really enjoyed the day. We would book again and recommend to friends. The boat was lovely and clean and well looked after.

We had a great day on Harry and Sally for my Dad's 70th birthday – a perfect venue for a family celebration. Aged 4 – 70 everyone had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and got to spend quality time together.
We prepared a picnic for a lunchtime stop-off, and afternoon tea and cake, it all just worked out brilliantly, leading to a lovely relaxing and fun day.
The range of on-board kitchen/dining equipment was fantastic, and so much better than we were expecting (and spotlessly clean too!). We were all pleasantly surprised by how much space there was too.
I would definitely recommend booking this boat.

With my upcoming 40th birthday, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than on one of England’s beautiful canals, and the Ashby canal really offers stunning view of the English countryside.

Hiring Harry and Sally for the day did not disappoint, and my friends and family all commented on how lovely the boat was - clean, well-equipped, spacious and with all facilities needed for a comfortable journey, including music adaptors, a fold-out table, cups, cutlery etc.

The staff at Bosworth Marina gave detailed instructions on operating the boat, as well as safety precautions, so we set off with confidence (it helped that two of our party already had experience, but you can hire a skipper).

So with a beautiful boat, excellent weather, lots of food, gorgeous scenery and the excitement of navigating along British Waterways, the day couldn’t have been better – thank you Harry and Sally!

We had a brilliant day out on Saturday on the Day Boat Harry & Sally. The boat is modern, clean and extremely spacious. There was ample room for everyone to move freely about. The galley is very well equipped with fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave and plenty of crockery and cutlery. We are real novices at boating but everything was well explained to us. We had two young children with us, 6 and 4, and life jackets to fit them were supplied. And they were highly impressed with the disco effect lighting which we discovered!!

I will definitely be recommending this company to our friends.

Having hired your lovely day boat 'Harry & Sally' recently to celebrate my son's 18th Birthday party with the family I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful day. The boat is so well equipped, has a great sound system and is very modern inside, we really had a most enjoyable time and the sunshine was certainly a bonus. The Ashby canal is very picturesque and we are tempted to return for a longer holiday, we certainly hope to hire the boat again and head down the canal in the opposite direction. Thank you for organising all the balloons and decorations and for sorting the cakes out with your neighbour, everything was just as we had hoped for and your team were very friendly and helpful.
Many thanks.
