M.V. Curlew

22ft Colvic Motor Boat available
for day hire on the river Deben

I hired the Curlew for a week and we could not have had a better time. Mark and Emma gave me a full intro, she was in wonderful condition and started on the button. We used her for family trips up and down the river, anchoring off the beach for swimming and having lunch at the pubs along the water.
I was sorry to return her when my week was up.
