Our broad beam boat, Richmond, is extremely popular for private charter cruises.

Richmond is a wide beam canal boat with a bright, spacious cabin area and comfortable seating for up to 31 passengers.

It is available for private charter at times which are added to our scheduled service.

The canal is a quiet, rural waterway offering a cruise time of approximately 2 hours. This includes a stop on the return leg at Hunston. Here you can disembark to admire the view to Chichester Cathedral as depicted in Turner’s famous painting.

Booking times are arranged to suit customer requirements but can be mornings, lunchtimes, afternoons and early evenings.

All charter cruises must be booked at least four weeks in advance, a non-returnable deposit of £100 of the total trip cost is payable to reserve your booking, with the balance due 28 days prior to your trip.
Please note that we do not allow dogs on these trips, the exception being for guide or assistance dogs.
