About Bennett Boatyard
Holiday Boating- we make it easy for you! Bryher Boat and Kayak Hire from Bennett Boatyard allows you to explore the tranquil clear waters of Scilly at your own pace. Cruise between the islands, visit uninhabited shores, fish from your boat (fishing lines available to hire), take a picnic, moor up and explore... The possibilities are endless and with a safety boat doing regular patrols and staff always ready to lend a hand if you are at all unsure, this really is an option available to all. We are based at Green Bay on Bryher. We have hire points on St Martin's and deliver to Tresco by arrangement. If you are staying on the other islands, please make your way to Bryher, Tresco or St Martin's for the day and we will fit the hire around your inter-island launch times. We hire small boats with outboards, a range of sailing dinghies and stable sit on top kayaks. We provide buoyancy aids, full safety equipment and give comprehensive instruction on boat handling. Wetsuits and fishing lines also available to hire. We hire from 9.30am to 6pm with half day hires from 9.30am - 1pm or 2pm - 6pm. We can also arrange hire times around inter-island launches. We are here to help, call us to discuss your hire requirements. Thinking of keeping your boat in Scilly? We offer year round storage for all boats in our safe and sheltered enclosure. We cover all aspects of boat care and provide a full maintenance and repair service to give you a hassle free boating holiday.

We stayed on St Martins for 6 days and on the penultimate day, rented a gaff rigged sailing boat from Bennetts. Everyone was really helpful, we were picked up from St Martins on time, given instruction on rigging the boat at Bryher and we were off. Despite a good forecast for the day, we were soaked by a rain shower within minutes!! But we were helped to ashore to warm up, and after a coffee at the local cafe, were on our way again for a tour around all the islands until 5pm. Nothing was too much trouble, we really felt looked after. Charts, flares etc were provided with our briefing, you just need to keep aware of the tides as the area has a lot of shallows.

Well this is a way to travel the islands without the services of the various Boating Association timetables. They'll rent you the right size of boat for your needs and put you right on tides and moorings This way we got to Samson for the first time

Hired a sit on top single kayak for four hours on two consecutive days. These guys were super helpful and on the second day even delivered the kayak to St Martin's and collected again for no charge. All to fit in with the launches from and to St Mary's . A fabulous area to explore, particularly if the weather's good and the wind lightish. Thank you Bennett Boatyard for making my Scilly kayaking experience so easy and enjoyable.

Dan was prompt and helpful pre trip and equally helpful once we arrived. I hired a Clovelly Picarooner to take my Wife and 8 year old daughter on their first sailing experience. Absolutely first class...

Dan looks after our boat for us and offers exceptional service. He helped us to ship it over here, when we arrive it's always on a mooring. Any tips or advice he's always there. Superb thanks Dan.
