Sailing Barge Charter

For information about sailing barges available for charter see for an overview.

Charter trips are available from a variety of East Coast locations as well as London. Trips can vary from 2 hours to 12 hours depending on location, and some barges have cabins to provide sleeping accomodation so you can take a trip away for several days at a time.

Sailing barges are also available for hire for those important celebrations - birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions, in fact any excuse you like.

They can also accomodate a variety of business corporate events.

In the winter you can come on board a sailing barge when they are comfortably set up as a warm and welcoming tea room, a great way to warm up with refreshments on those cold winter mornings.

There are also sailing barges that cater for parties of children, taking them away for an experience of a lifetime, learning about what they can achieve. This can also give their parents some free time too...
