Canal holidays and Day Boat Hire on the Leeds & Liverpool
in the scenic Yorkshire Dales

Snaygill Boats started back in 1977 with the aim of providing top quality canal holidays fleet on this loveliest of all canals. We were drawn to the Skipton area by the beauty of the Yorkshire countryside and because the
Leeds Liverpool canal is so quiet and unspoilt.

We build our own holiday narrowboats from the bare shell up which means being responsible for all the design, fitting out and décor. Modern developments are combined with traditional design and expert craftsmanship and we have the skills and resources to maintain our boats to a high standard.

A really good narrowboat canal holiday depends on a lot of things like first class boats, a quiet canal, on the spot owners and staff, on–board tuition, in-person lock training (yes, we meet you at the locks and show you first hand how to use them safely), easy car access with FREE unlimited safe parking and a general atmosphere of helpfulness. Snaygill’s position in a major Heritage Area is also a big advantage because there is a lot to see and do here.

We are a family run boat yard and we really care about your boating holiday needs. We spend many hours
maintaining each narrowboat on every changeover day so that a Snaygill Boat comes to you in an immaculate
condition. We hope that this together with the details in our website will convince you to book your Yorkshire canal narrowboat holiday with us.
