Upton Marina,


What better way to spend a day with family or friends than on the secluded joys of the River Severn driving your very own motor boat?

We have a number of different self drive boats to choose from...


Our small self drive is a fishing style boat with an open top. It can seat up 4 people (Max Load: 227kg). This lightweight aluminium boat is great for family fun and fishing. You can spend the day trundling up and down the river as captain, relaxing and basking in the sun. The boat has 3 foam-filled flotation seats so is safe and economical to operate.

Small Boat Prices
Half Day (4 hours) - £50
Full Day (8 hours) - £80


We have two larger boats; they are Hardy Fishering 17ft. This beautiful classic boat, made in England, has lots of character with its little wooden steering wheel. There is a cuddy in the bow for protection against the weather as we all know how unpredictable the English weather is! There is plenty of seating for up to 7 people and with a good beam of 7ft it has plenty of space to manoeuvre around in. It's a perfect boat for a family day outing. The Hardy also has four sealed buoyancy chambers for added safety.

Large Boat Prices
Half Day (4 hours) - £100
Full Day (8 hours) - £150
Hourly Rate - £30
