The owners always take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Given the effects of COVID-19, they have now stepped up cleaning procedures to make them more rigorous.  As such, there will be:

·         Services and amenities may be subject to change – for your safety and that of staff, some services or amenities such as daily house-keeping and use of marina shower blocks, etc may be modified.

·         Restricted areas dependent on bookings – whilst you will have exclusive use of the boat during your stay, the owners would respectfully request that only the cabins that have been booked and paid for be used thus limiting the surfaces which are likely to become contaminated.
