Fun Afloat at Saul

Did you know that our 27ft narrow boat Perseverance, based at Saul Junction on the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal, is available for Private Crewed Charter during the week and at weekends* all year round?

We can accommodate any length of Charter, subject to bridge opening times, and our location at Saul Junction gives us access to some very interesting cruises regardless of duration.

We are able to carry parties of up to 12 people. All our Crew hold the 'Certificate of Boat Management' and have qualified to the RYA Helmsmans Certificate standard.

While you may Charter Perseverance for any length of time we do 'feature' two trips currently.

  • A lunch cruise to the Tudor Arms at Shepherds Patch, Slimbridge is very popular. It's an hour each way plus an hour for lunch (which will be freshly prepared and waiting for you) 
  • Also a trip to Gloucester Docks and Quays. Ideal for a look around and shops at the Quays Outlet Centre and what a perfect way to beat the traffic 


Perseverance makes a great little venue for all occasions, and children love "Persy" for their Birthday Parties. Bring your own Pirate Picnic on board.

For your comfort on longer Charters, Perseverance is equiped with a toilet compartment. She is also weather proof for those inclement days.

Charter prices are: £25.00 for the first hour, £20.00 for the second and subsequent hours.

Please note that our featured trips do require a minimum Charter time due to cruising distances, and that you settle food bills at the Tudor Arms at the time.

* Because of the very popular regular trips at weekends, Saturday or Sunday Charters can be organised for the mornings only.
