Welcome to Daily Info's Boats page. Here you might find a canoe, dinghy, punt or narrowboat for sale, a residential barge or cruiser for rent, or any number of boat accessories such as paddles, lifejackets or anchors. If you're buying a boat to live in you need also to buy a mooring and licence appropriate to the waterway of your choice. Or you can forego a mooring and choose the "continuous cruising" lifestyle, moving regularly around different mooring sites. And remember the rivers flood, while the canal does not, but the Thames has a certain beauty that static water cannot match.

If you're selling a boat and aren't sure what to say about it have a look here for some suggestions.

Will appear in the printed sheet, and on the website in larger type.
Your ad goes up immediately in the free section and is transferred to the paid section at the top of the page later the same day.
The cost per insertion is 50p/word, with a minimum charge of £5.
One insertion gives you one week online and one edition of our printed version. Discounts are available for 3 or more insertions.

These produce even better results. Prices start at £30 for a 3cm deep x 6.8cm wide (150 x 340px) display ad (that's about 30 words and a logo). You can make your ad larger in increments of £10/cm (/50px). Each increment provides space for about 12 more words). A double column ad is twice the price but just over twice the width (you gain the 'gutter' space between the columns).
Enter your text below; we will design an ad for you and send you a proof for your approval before it goes live. There's no extra charge for this.
Alternatively, you can email us your own pdf, gif, png or jpg. We'll need a high-resolution black and white version for print as well as the colour version for the website. Contact us for more details.
