We have just returned from a weekend barging on the Shropshire Union Canal. We rented our four berth boat from Andersen Boats. From start to finish the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. We were new to barging and they explained everything in detail. The standard of the barge was first class - absolutely everything you could need for a relaxing, peaceful break. We will definitely be trying it again - now we think we experts!!

We picked up the brand new Fjord Monarch canal boat from Andersen Boats on Friday, we had never been on the canals before and were all very excited and a little nervous, we need not have had any nerves because the whole team at Andersen's were so very friendly and helpful and gave us a tour of the boat, showed us how everything worked and how easy it was to control, we were taken through the first lock, which the kids loved and then we felt confident enough to take off on our adventure.
The boat was stunning, it was surprisingly spacious and immaculate. All the boats at Andersen's looked equally well looked after. The boat had everything you could need, microwave, comfortable beds, plenty of storage space, tv, dvd etc. We travelled from Middlewich towards Lymm, when we moored up in the evenings we made sure we were in the countryside so we could get out walk with the kids, we saw Buzzards, kingfisher, owls, heron etc, so great for nature lovers. We also enjoyed a look at the Anderton Boat Lift and the kids loved the 2 long tunnels we ventured through.
The whole break was great fun, we enjoyed the family time and would recommend Andersen's to anyone looking to try a holiday on the canals.

First time on the canals in may 2014. Enjoyed it so much we've booked again for may '15. Were in the Stavanger fjord, got many a compliment about the boat from other boaters. Good friendly service from personnel at boatyard, good tuition about boat and locks, made time for a chat at start and end of week. If you've not tried boating, do it this year and do it with Andersens, pleasure guaranteed.

Booked 4 boats for an Autumn half-term flotilla. Andersen boats could not have been more accommodating. The boats were of excellent quality and superbly fitted out. Price was good and comparable with other fleets. Would 100% recommend them to other boaters whether first timers or 'old hands'...
