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.
