Welcome to Arlen Hire Boats
We provide canal boat holidays from our base at Ashton Basin, Preston, on the beautiful Lancaster Canal. We are conveniently located close to the main rail and bus stations. Our location also gives you the whole length of the canal to cruise in one of our fantastic narrowboats.
Our boats have all of the facilities you will need onboard, including:
Don´t worry if you are a first timer, all of our of boats are powered by quiet, maintenance free diesel engines and are easy to handle. We will also give you a comprehensive handover before you set off, so you feel confident and relaxed when you leave for your holiday.
