New electric day boat arrives at Springwood Haven

From 3 September, our new electric day boat ‘Sunny Day’ will be available to hire at Springwood Haven Marina on the Coventry Canal in Nuneaton in Warwickshire.

Operated by Drifters member ABC Boat Hire, the 36ft ‘Sunny Day’ narrowboat accommodates up to ten people.

The boat uses products from ABC Leisure Group’s Onboard Energy Direct off-grid energy range, including lithium batteries and a Beta Marine 10Kw motor engine.

Day boat destinations

On a day afloat from Springwood Haven, boaters can cruise through the Warwickshire countryside to Marston Junction and back, stopping off at the Horseshoes pub along the way.

Or head the other way along the Coventry Canal to Atherstone, passing the canalside Anchor pub.

‘Sunny Day’ joins ‘Perfect Day’ based at Kings Orchard Marina, as the second of nine new electric day boats to be added to ABC Boat Hire’s fleet in England and Wales.
