Low-Cost Overnight Cruiser

Sheer Freedom has been specifically designed for low-cost overnight stays.

Comfortable and well specified, Sheer Freedom gives up to three people the opportunity to get up to two nights out on the river without breaking the bank.

Inside, there's lots of seating (it can seat 10 people) which converts into a double and single berth. There's a toilet cubicle, hot and cold running water and a small galley with twin-burner gas hob and sink. There's cupboard and locker space too.

A sliding roof over the front section of the boat gives you that outdoor feel but also protection if the weather isn't behaving.

Overnight Breaks

Through clever design, the internal space of Sheer Freedom can be used for seating during the day and for sleeping overnight. This 20ft boat offers space for three people overnight by converting all of the front seating into a double berth across the width of the vessel. The single berth is a six-foot bunk towards the rear on the port side.

Curtains are easily attached to all the windows for privacy and the LED lights give you enough illumination to make a basic meal and so on; though it's fair to say that most people tend to eat in one of the excellent riverside pubs.

Whilst Sheer Freedom is basic in overnight facilities, it offers the perfect low-cost opportunity for getting a night out on a boat without having to pay the considerably higher rates of a holiday cruiser. Bring your own towels and bedding and you're away!

Important notes

Cruising is limited to a 20 mile section of river. Navigation is only permissible between sunrise and sunset. Bedding, towels etc are not provided (they can be hired). Only basic cooking utensils, crockery & cutlery are provided.

Simple Terms and Conditions

We would like to draw your attention to the six key points from our terms and conditions. These are the most relevant points that most hirers will ask about. They are easy to understand and will apply to all bookings. The full terms and conditions are also available as a download.

Security Deposit

Everybody who hires a Freedom boat for the day (or a day boat for multiple days or overnight) is required to pay a £50 cash security deposit. We will hold this deposit during your hire time against any claims that may arise as a result of your hire, late return of the vessel, any damage or returning it unclean. In the event of damage, you will be fully liable for any costs of repair.


All passengers will be fitted with suitable buoyancy aids and instructed how to wear them. Children will be weighed to ensure a good fit. We have lifejackets for dogs too if you would like one. Lifejackets are mandatory and whilst we cannot force you to wear one, you must be advised even the best swimmers can struggle during an unexpected event

Passenger numbers

When booking, you must be clear about the number of passengers. Every boat is weight tested to establish its safe loading; exceed this and the entire vessel and crew is put at risk. Babies, children and dogs must be included in the passenger numbers. Overloading a vessel will result in the boat being seized by the boatyard without any refund of any monies paid.

Pets onboard

You are welcome to bring your dog or dogs on board, they are part of the family after all. However, be aware that we must take the weight of the dog into account. The simplest way we do this is to say that a dog counts as passenger and therefore is included in the total passenger numbers for the vessel. We may make exceptions for very small dogs.

Bookings & Cancellations

Bookings will only be confirmed upon the payment of the full hire cost and will not be held until payment is received. Cancellations are not accepted for day hire bookings. If, due to extreme weather or unavailability of a vessel, we have to cancel a booking, all monies paid will be refunded.

Navigation rules

You will be given guidance on how to pilot the vessel, how to stay safe and the rules of the river. Once you have accepted the vessel, you are fully and solely responsible for it and its crew. All navigation laws must be observed and any charges arising from ignoring these will be served upon the hirer.
