ABC Leisure Group have been operating their narrowboat hire fleet to holidaymakers for over 45 years and have almost 200 boats being hired from 16 hire bases in England, Scotland and Wales.
As one of our boat owners you would provide us with an initial series of staged payments to fund the purchase of materials, shell build, fixtures and fittings and everything needed to equip a first-class boat for our customers to hire. Once your boat is finished, the rest is up to us! We handle the marketing, hiring and maintenance of the boat, together with arranging all the necessary insurance and licensing. You receive a payment ranging from 25% to 34% of the hire fees we receive, for as long as the boat remains in our hire fleet.
When the boat is retired from the fleet (usually after about 15 years), you have the option of keeping it for yourself or asking us to sell it for you. There is a high demand for ex-hire boats and, once the sale is complete, you receive the proceeds (minus commission) as a final payment.
