A superb boatyard offering a fine fleet of narrowboats all fully fitted and equipped for your every comfort. A family concern since 1961, the boatyard is personally supervised by the owners to ensure that high standards are maintained. Situated at Linslade, close to Leighton Buzzard on the Grand Union Canal, this base offers a number of cruising opportunities either north or south, including a cruise over the Chiltern Hills to London. Stoke Bruerne provides an ideal introductory cruise featuring locks, aqueducts, museums and, for the slightly more ambitious, Blisworth tunnel.
All boats are built and maintained to the highest standards by Wyvern's own craftsmen at Linslade. Novices are most welcome and are given full instruction which includes boat handling, passage through a lock and a practice mooring. Wyvern boats are renowned for their handling qualities.
Boats normally ready at 1.30pm.
All non-family groups should be over 20 and are required to pay a £100 security deposit. Regret no all male/all female groups except with prior permission.
Damage waiver included in hire terms .
