About Us

The Mercia Swan is a purpose built 12.8 metre by 3.0 metre widebeam boat, with a cruiser style stern. It is powered by a new 42 hp Canaline engine and was newly painted and refurbished for the 2016 season. You can relax in style on the comfortable seating, either inside or out and enjoy the scenery passing by. If the weather should turn we can close off the bow doors and switch on the heating. For your convenience we have a flush toilet and wash hand basin. A full safety package is carried aboard and a safety instruction is given prior to each sailing.

Should you need refreshment during your trip we offer tea, coffee,cappuccino, hot chocolate and soft drinks for sale - we even have duck food ! !

Your skipper is Paul Hughes who lives on his widebeam boat on the marina. Paul has a wealth of experience on both canals and rivers so you are guaranteed a pleasant and relaxing trip. Of course your skipper is qualified with the Inland Waterways Helmsman`s Certificate and is First Aid trained.

He operates from Wednesday to Sunday from 5th April until the 31st May, and from Tuesday to Sunday from 1st June until 31st October (weather conditions permitting)
