Electric day boats join the narrowboat fleet at Llangattock

From 24 March 2018 you can hire an electric boat from our wharf at Llangattock, and explore this particularly beautiful section of the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal for a half day or a full day. 

Our electric boats seat up to six adults, two children and two dogs. Advance booking is recommended, to ensure that you get your preferred day and time. Just call 01873 858227 to check availability and make a booking.

It's the perfect, relaxed day out for all ages. You are welcomed to our wharf by a member of staff and shown to your boat. No experience is needed, as the boats are very easy to steer and you will be able to watch an instructional video before setting off for guidance. And if the weather turns a little chilly, simply pull up the rainproof cover and you're sitting inside.

From our wharf, head north and you can reach Llangynidr with its pubs. Or cruise south towards Gilwern and Govilon with stunning views across the Usk valley towards the Sugar Loaf mountain above Abergavenny. There is plenty of wildlife to spot, from herons waiting to catch their fish supper to red kites soaring overhead, while along the way you'll pass sheep, horses and cows in neighbouring fields.

Why not stop at a canalside pub for refreshment or take a picnic with you? You can moor up almost anywhere along the Mon and Brec canal so you might like to bring a picnic rug. We recommend calling into Crickhowell before you arrive at our wharf so you can buy some items for your picnic from the lovely independent shops in the town.
