Access Information

The extra width of the boats provides excellent manoeuvrability for wheelchair users and they all have special built-in facilities such as hydraulic lifts, wide-access boarding ramps, low-level bunks and wet rooms with specially fitted showers and WCs. We can also provide additional equipment such as transfer hoists, commodes and shower chairs. Two of the boats have been fitted with a remote steering device that enables someone with less upper body mobility to steer from their wheelchair, using a joystick. \
