hi everyone
im new to this forum and please accept my apologies if this post is in the wrong category.
i'm looking to hire a live aboard boat in august for about a week from the weekend of the 8th, i need it for just myself and my partner, ideally we want to just 'chill out' for a few days, do a bit of fishing, visit the odd water side pub and generally do very little else...lol
the location of the boat is unimportant to us..(so long as its on water...lol)
if anyone has one available for that week at a very competitive rate please feel free to contact me
thanks in advance
darrell

Hi and Welcome.

I think you need to check what is available in  the hire fleets. Private boat owners are limited form hiring out by both insurance and conditions of the river licences, so you are very unlikely to find a boat through the private route. Having said that, the late availabilty in hire fleets in August may be tricky too, so bargains may be hard to find. You may be advised to book as soon as possible.

Hi Darrell, welcome,

I’m not quite sure whether by saying “live aboard” you are planning to stay in the same place all the time or whether you are talking about a cruiser that you can sleep on.  You could see if Pacific Cruisers have anything available.  Their small yard on the Chet is in an attractive spot and there are plenty of walks and some good fishing if you don't want to go anywhere.  Loddon has a wide choice of pubs, restaurants and take aways and there are plenty of places to go to by road within easy reach.

hi again
thx pauline and bill, im sorry about the 'live aboard' term bill, it is 'cruising' that we had in mind, ill check out the places you suggested.
we shouldve really thought about this sooner, but we hadnt even planned to have this break until a few days ago so now we are seeking something to do with this time we have and chilling out on a boat appeals to us both so hence me joining the forum (i have my hidden agenda tho, i love fishing)

if anyone hears of anything that might appeal to us please let me know

thanks again

Hi Darrell

I have just done a quick online search and Pacific Cruisers at Loddon are showing 2 boats available for the week beginning 8th August - you can find their website here:

http://www.pacificcruisers.co.uk/

Another quick search on the Richardsons website (Stalham) shows several boats available for that week:

http://www.richardsonsboatingholidays.co.uk/


But get in there quick if you want to secure a booking!! I can highly recommend Pacific Cruisers at Loddon if they still have something available.
