New to boating?

Before you Buy


If you don't have a boat but are considering buying one for cruising on Britain’s inland waterways,  why not join MWYC and experience the lifestyle before taking the plunge, no pun intended.

Sound Advice on Boating


You are welcome to join fellow members on day cruises and come along to our frequent social gatherings to chat about boating and get opinions from people who use boats without the sales pitch of boat builders and sellers.

Our club members have a wide variety of boat types, styles and layouts from modern narrow boats to historic cruisers including those constructed in steel, aluminium, wood and GRP.

Running Costs and Looking After Your Boat


Our members are  keen to share their experience, expertise and give sound advice to help new club members get the most out of boating. We can advise on running costs, maintence, boat safety and cruising routes.

The Right Boat For You


So, when it comes to the time for buying your first inland waterways boat you will be better equipped in making the right informed decision.

Happy Cruising


Once you are afloat you can choose whether to moor your boat permanently at the club as a base for cruising or take a winter mooring allowing extended cruising over the spring and  summer months. Of course you can always choose continuous cruising but still remain a club social member.
