It was a beautiful day in a beautiful part of the world and the boat was a perfect way to enjoy the day. Try easy to drive and very comfy with everything you need for sn awesome day out. Price was very reasonable too but would like the prices advertised in AUD rather then USD

Thank you Andrea for taking the time to provide a review. It certainly was a beautiful day, we are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. This is the 1st time I heard that you found the prices in USD instead of AUD. I have checked everywhere that I can, I only see our prices in AUD. If you can share insight on where you found them in USD, I will endeavour to sort it out straight away. Thanks once again, we look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the not too distant future.

Lovely 3 hours cruising around the canals looking at some beautiful homes and boats. Electric motor so lovely and quiet. Comfortable seating and easy to operate. Toilet stop at the Isle of Capri which looked a great place to have lunch but we had our own food.
