Post Subject: do you know boat hire companies in uk

Hi I want to buy a cruiser/narrow boat to hire out. Does anyone know of a company that hires out private boats on owners behalf in the UK?

First of all it would be difficult for a private owner to make a profit if they were to run their boat as a hire boat and meet all the Boat Safety, Insurance and British Waterways requirements. A number of hire fleets will run sponsorship deals where a private owner pays for a boat to be put into the fleet for a period of time and receives a proportion of the hire fees. However the boat would normally have to be built and liveried as one of their own boats. I suspect a phone around the major hire fleets would soon identify those that do. I would be very wary of any other organisation unless you are 100% sure about their probity. Do a search for Que Sera and see the problem that can occur if not properly insured etc. Tony Books
