MK AFLOAT - Day Hire Boats - Mary Jane & Meadowlark


COVID Guidance

From 8th March 2021 the day hire boats can operate for single house/bubble only. From 29th March the day hire boats can operate with 6 pepole/2 households only. From the 21st June - No COVID restrictions.

MK Afloat offers self-steer day hire boats for a special day out, or book a Skipper and we will navigate the boat for you!  Each of our boats takes up to 12 family and friends for you to enjoy the very unique Grand Union Canal through Milton Keynes. Our boats, Mary Jane & Meadowlark, have all the features of a semi-traditional narrowboat, including tiller steering, gallery, toilet compartment, and open outside deck.  In the gallery there is a sink, gas hob, and fridge.  Forward of the cabin is a covered open air deck which can be enclosed by side screens.

Mary Jane & Meadowlark are designed for easy operation, whilst giving you the feeling of real narrowboating. They are powered by a modern diesel engine with a single lever operation for forward and reverse, and the hire price includes all the diesel, gas and water you will need.
