Do I need a boat licence to drive a houseboat?

Posted on

No.

To hire a houseboat you will need to be a minimum of 25 years of age, however to drive the vessel, you need to be 18 years of age at the date of hire, and hold a current car driver’s licence.

No boat licence or special training is required.  Approximately one hour’s tuition is given by our staff (known as the “show out”) prior to starting your holiday.  Driving and mooring the boat is surprisingly easy once you get used to it.
