The Seth Ellis is licensed to carry up to 12 passengers. Purpose built in 2005, she has a galley for serving hot and cold drinks, a toilet and central heating as well as large opening windows all around. A large cruiser-style stern makes getting on and off the boat easy. Access to the passenger cabin is down a short flight of steps.

You are welcome to bring your own picnic, or we can stop at a canalside pub. Passengers may have a go at steering, under the supervision of our crew.

From our base in Retford, you can charter the boat on a choice of routes. We move to other locations for some weekend trips. For full details, see below.
