Canals, Rivers and Waterways
The Lee Valley Boat Centre is a small friendly business with the intention of giving everyone the chance of experiencing the River Lee. From passenger boat hire for larger groups to small rowing boats for up to 4 persons we aim to provide a means to travel along the River Lee at an affordable cost. The boats are available from the boat centre in Broxbourne with the exception of the passenger boats, which are boarded at the mooring slightly further upstream. In the interests of safety all children under the age of 16 years will have to wear a buoyancy aid which we supply and fit free of charge prior to boarding one of our boats (exception being the passenger boats which have their own safety management system on board).
Andersen Boats is a family run business, run by the one family over 3 generations. Boating is in our blood... we were founded by Johan Fredrik Andersen, a Norwegian boat builder, in the early 1970's in Middlewich on a plot of land by a canal. Since, then we have grown, starting with only 2 boats and now maintaining a fleet of 16 boats.
