We are a small family run, off-line boatyard on the River Soar, offering a range moorings for narrow boats and river cruisers.
We are able to accommodate all lengths of boat up to 72ft. and whilst principally set up for narrow beam craft, a number of wide beam moorings are available. Limited hard standing available
Sileby is situated midway between Leicester and Loughborough on the River Soar.
We are about five hours cruising from the River Trent where there is a wide choice of waterways. The Leicester Ring, Trent and Mersey, Erewash to name a few with the delightful Kegworth an easy weekend stopover.
Like all river navigations, we are prone to fluctuating water levels in time of heavy and prolonged rainfall.
For those with experience only of canals, this can be a little daunting at first but many boaters miss out on the joys of river cruising for fear of this over-hyped occurrence. It's really not as bad as you think!
We do not set out to be a state-of-the-art-marina but prefer to be thought of as a ‘working boat-yard’ D.I.Y. is encouraged and a little noise or temporary untidiness is not out-lawed!
