All about Harwell Charters fishing boat hire
To complement our training packages we offer fishing boats for hire. Spending a day afloat in your own fishing boat is extremely rewarding. You can choose who comes, where you fish, how long for and what type of fishing you want to do. Maybe you want to spend the day catching mackerel, or fly-fishing for bass, anchored up or drifting over the wrecks it matters not...you can choose.
Unfortunately owning your own boat is an expensive and time consuming business. Do you pay marina fees or go for a trailer boat? Either way it costs money. What about the maintenance and cleaning? Antifouling every year, engine servicing, polishing and scrubbing........the list goes on and nothing is cheap. Whilst boat ownership can be great fun, unless you have you have the time and finances to make it work it soon becomes a grind.
So why not hire? 'Bare-boat' chartering is common in the yachting world but until recently options for the angler were non-existent. Now you can enjoy using a top-quality angling boat for the day, bring her back and walk away! Even if you charter the boat every weekend, it will be cheaper than buying your own! Look out for our block booking prices which make multiple charters considerably cheaper than a one off. This really is a cost effective alternative to boat ownership.
Or current charter vessel is a Raider 18 'Cuddy'. The Raider 18 is a safe, practical craft that will perform in all conditions.
