The ultimate luxury boat for 2 couples! Legato is a very special canal boat with an innovative design comprising of 2 double bedrooms and 2 luxury bathrooms.

Unrivalled Luxury

Canal boat hire is  not typically associated with luxury but then we are not a typical hire boat company. Quite simply we aim to provide the best canal boats & the highest level of service to ensure your holiday is everything you hoped it to be & more.

We are particularly proud that our boats are all different ! They are all bespoke & designed by us to afford maximum comfort as opposed to maximum occupancy .

Our boats are smartly painted in aubergine & cream &  traditionally hand sign written - the interiors are beautifully finished with quality fixtures and fittings incorporating many features you would want on your own boat.  When you take to the helm be prepared for your immaculate boat to be admired as you cruise past other holiday makers

It goes without saying that a good nights’ sleep is essential for a happy holiday so each boat has  a fixed bed with  a luxurious mattress, sumptuous duvet/pillows and hotel quality bed linen. Our wide beam boat Piccolo has a full sized double bed which you can walk around & Glissando has a 5ft wide by 6ft 3inch king size bed normally only found on bespoke owner owned boats.

The bathrooms have luxury glass shower enclosures, porcelain sinks with stylish vanity units and toilets which flush at the touch of a button.

The quality contemporary kitchens are fully equipped with everything you need and cleverly designed to incorporate a full sized cooker and fridge.

The onboard electricity supply  will power mobile phone chargers, laptops & hair straighteners but most  hair dryers are too powerful so each boat has one included onboard for your use.

Piccolo & Glissando have bistro sets on the front decks perfect for dining al fresco.

Holiday Essentials - As part of the Holiday Hire we supply parking, diesel, gas, bed linen, towels, hair dryer, complimentary toiletries,tea, coffee, sugar, milk, limited supply of bottled drinking water, washing up liquid, toilet rolls etc along with waterproof jackets/trousers.

  Full Boat Inventory - This will be sent to you with your welcome pack on receipt of the final balance

We welcome potential guests to come & view our boats prior to booking... Please contact us for an appointment.
