Hire Boat Handovers

When hiring a canal boat, you'll need to be sure you are given adequate tuition before leaving the base. It is worth doing some research to ensure the hire boat operator provides suitable training.

British Marine runs a Quality Accredited Boatyard Scheme (QAB), which includes the previously recognised Hire Boat Handover scheme. This is available to hire boat and boatyard companies to help promote safe enjoyment of the inland waterways.

Look out for the logo which can help you select your chosen holiday company. Companies that are allowed to display the logo have undergone accreditation, that offers reassurances of hire boat handover training, safe and legal practices together with good customer service.
