    Once again Fox's have done us proud with a great job of painting our narrow-boat. They have always been good to deal with, everybody has been kind and helpful. We're attaching 3 piccies. The first is when the boat was new in 2005 (not from Fox's) seriously under-powered with an outboard motor. The second after Fox's extended it and replaced outboards with Isuzu 35hp inboard. Superb workmanship by Alan; and the last is this year when we had it repainted with another superb job by Gary. Not to forget Tracey and everybody else who were always pleased to see us and never minded when we took photographs of work in progress. thanks to all Mike & Malena

    We hired a boat for the day, we had family over from America and wanted to do something different. It was a first time for us all to be on the river from March to up well. There was 8 of us in total and we brought along our two dogs. We all really enjoyed our day, including the dogs and the staff were really polite, friendly and helpful! And the boat was in great condition. We would definitely do this again and will be recommending to others. Great service, thank you!

    It was a fantastic Easter break the weather didn't put us off. The boat was fantastic and well equipped with all your needs. We cooked a lamb dinner and stopped at all the pubs on the way, we managed to get to Ely, and the lock keeps were amazing helping with it all. Thanks again X

    Thank you Fox Narrowboats for the lovely prize in the draw of a days hire of Adventurer. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. To anyone thinking of doing this, go for it! The boat has everything you need, just take your picnic or stop at one of the pubs along the way. We were lucky in having a beautiful sunny day as well. Thanks again.

    We took March Adventurer out to Whittlesey and back on Saturday (four adults and two small children). It was a great day, the team at Fox's was very accommodating and the driving tutorial made the whole thing a doddle (mostly!). Had a fab time, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

    Well what a great time we had! We (three couples) decided to hire the day boat (March Adventurer) so we could take a trip to Outwell to enjoy the fantastic Fens scenery and fit in a spot of geo-caching. The weather was wet for most of the day but that DID NOT spoil our enjoyment. The boat had a large outside covered area to the bow and all the facilities to make a cuppa and sit down inside (with the heating on so we could dry out). Leaving the marina and heading for March town centre, we stopped at the March Town moorings and headed into The Ship public house for a Full English Breakfast. Then it was time for some caching. We managed to get three caches before heading into the wilderness of the Fens. After going through Marmount Priory Lock, which was great fun for a bunch of newbies, we headed down the tranquil stretch of Well Creek to Upwell and up to the basin at Outwell. Here we turned round and headed back, stopping at the moorings at the Five Bells to grab a couple of caches, before heading home (and stopping at The Globe for an ale and warm fire). Getting to March, once again we stopped at The Ship for a quick drink, before catching a few more caches on the way back to the marina. We fitted all this in to one day and managed to get back to the marina on time to hand the boat back in one piece at 6pm. Thank you Fox Narrowboats for a great day....the weather didn't deter fact it made for an entertaining day! We will be back!

    Well nothing the Great British weather could throw us could put a damper on a great day out on the Middle Level on our trip from March to Outwell/Upwell and back again on Fox's narrow boat March Adventurer. Cracking breakfast at the Ship in March moored outside, Full English got us ready for a full day on the water. A bit of geocaching (treasure hunting for the non informed) on the route added to the fun, though we can't tell where we found the containers. I can't think of a more relaxing way to spend a day , no rushing around just a slow wonderful meander through the fen waterways with plenty of time to take in the sites. Highly recommend Fox narrowboats for something that bit different.

    Had a brilliant time at the weekend at foxes narrowboats. It was my second hen do and not only did they decorate the boat for me but also gave me a badge and sash which was so nice and totally unexpected! We had a brilliant day on the river chilling outside when it was sunny and sitting inside when it got a bit chilly....memories to cherish forever. Thanks everyone at the narrowboat shop for making it happen x x

    Dear Team at Fox's Narrow Boats Just wanted to say thank-you for the brilliant break we had with you last Septemeber, everything from the booking to the holiday went really smoothly. Having only sailed on yachts I was wondering what a Narrow Boat holiday would be like, it was fantastic. The briefing and boat handling gave us all we needed to know. The boat was well laid out, clean and comfortable, having everything we need to make the holiday perfect. The Fen Water Ways are peaceful and within a matter of minutes we were excited to see a flash of Blue as a Kingfisher flew to a near by tree. We found plenty to places to visit and eat, cooking a full English in the galley and eating at the front of the boat as the world went buy was relaxing. I have certainly recommended your company to others and hope you have a busy season and will be back soon. Jon and Jenny
