Outboard Motor Boats

Our Ranger Motor Boats are perfectly designed to ensure a stable and enjoyable trip out on the river.  They are easy to use and with only a little instruction, you will be able to go off and explore the Avon at your leisure.  Motor boats are hired by the boat and by the half hour or hour.

Please Note

Online booking for our motor boats is only available during the week.  For weekends and Bank Holidays, due to demand, motor boats are only available on a first come, first served basis.  At peak times we reserve the right to reduce the length of hire to a period of one half hour.



We are pleased to welcome Moorhen to our fleet. Seating up to 6 people she will be available for advanced hour bookings at anytime for just £40 per hour plus a £50 deposit  which is refundable on return.

Unlike our small motorboats, Moorhen is available for hire at the weekends and Bank Holidays through our online booking system.  Please follow the booking links below and check for availability.


  • Please Note - Children must be accopanied by someone who is at least 18 years old.
  • Please Note - All children under the age of 16 years, non-swimmers and those of reduced mobility must wear a lifejacket which will be supplied free of charge. Lifejackets and buoyancy aids are freely available to all who wish to have them.




Why not hire for longer? Take a picnic out and enjoy a half day or full 8 hour day on the river exploring the lower reaches of the Avon on our Day Boats.
