Goole Boathouse

GOOLE BOATHOUSE is located in a basin beside the Aire & Calder Canal which was formerly used for storage of timber. The water is kept at a constant level so that boats remain floating at all times.

Mooring is to modern floating pontoons which can be approached by a security gate, making Goole Boathouse one of the safest places to keep a boat in the Yorkshire area.

There are 140 moorings of various lengths giving suitable berths for yachts, cruisers, fishing vessels and canal boats. Electricity and water are available at the berths.

Other facilities include dry storage on land and under cover, a dry dock and a slipway, car parking and a well stocked chandlery. Narrowboats of up to 18 tons can be pulled out on our purpose-made trailer.
