Motor & Rowing Boat Hire on Lake Windermere, Lake District

Our motor boat and rowing boat hire allow you to explore England’s largest lake at your own pace and experience the breathtaking views only available from being out on the water. Public jetties along the eastern shore allow you to get off the boat and explore the lakeside towns, or stop off for lunch.

Motor Boat Hire

We have a choice of two types of motor boats available for hire, the first powered by a 6hp outboard engine and controlled by a steering wheel, which can take up to six people, the second powered by a 4hp outboard engine and controlled by a tiller, which can take up to four people.

Our 4hp tiller controlled boats are ideal for your fishing trip. Hire one for two hours or more and we will also provide a set of oars so you can get closer to the shore, an anchor and a fishing guide to Windermere.
