Boat breakdowns

Boat breakdowns are rare but if it does happen there's no need to panic. There are plenty of ways to set you off on your journey again.

Boat owners can search our [boat services listings] to locate a nearby boatyard, or contact River Canal Rescue, who will come out to you and even bring bread and tea along in case you're peckish.

If you’re stuck for several days or worse on a time limited mooring, be sure to contact our local enforcement officer to discuss staying longer. You may need to tow the boat a short distance to a less popular mooring spot, and if the delay becomes protracted, an extended stay charge will apply.

Call customer services on 0303 040 4040 to locate the enforcement officer for the area you're in.
