Castle Narrowboats offers a selection of holiday rental/for hire boats, including some electric craft. I haven’t ran into electric canal boats in my surfing, that I recall, but it seems to be a great fit. They get about 18 mile range. On the narrow canals, you have smooth water and slow speeds anyhow, and a hull design that can carry some batteries.
Castle Narrowboats offers you the choice of our fleet of modern, comfortable, diesel or electric narrow boats, in which you can enjoy as much – or as little – of the canal as you please. Weekly hire or short breaks, either over a weekend or mid-week, are available.
