Union Wharf Marina & Boutique Narrowboat Holidays Business for Sale

Now for sale, a multifaceted Inland Waterways business offering moorings and marina services, unique canal boat holidays and day hire. The business was founded in 1998 and is located at the heart of picturesque Market Harborough canal basin in Leicestershire, on the Grand Union canal.

Union Wharf Marina is a popular leisure destination. As well as the moorings and bustling hire boat centre, it accommodates a separately owned waterfront bar and restaurant and modern apartments that overlook the basin.

The canal itself is a peaceful stretch of the Grand Union at the end of the Market Harborough arm, which meanders through the rural Leicestershire landscape. The iconic Foxton Locks are a less than half a day’s cruise away. A holiday from Union Wharf can also take you to Braunston, Watford Locks or even the city of Leicester.

In 2016 the separately branded Boutique Narrowboats was launched. It specialises in canal holidays, short breaks and long-weekend escapes, designed especially for couples, on narrowboats with contemporary interiors that include luxuries such as king size beds, coffee machines and rainfall showers.

Boutique Narrowboats’ guests tend to be younger and a more diverse demographic than most traditional waterways boaters. Also, many are novices (online training and a comprehensive handover is provided to all guests) which makes Boutique Narrowboats very different from other hire companies.

The moorings and properties are occupied via 2 Canal & River Trust commercial leases, which are included in the sale price along with an 8-boat hire fleet that comprises of 3 high-end and 1 traditional holiday narrowboats and 4 smaller day hire boats.

The business is owner operated supported by staff including a manager, office support, engineers, housekeepers and boat trainers. It is open all year round.
