Older person plus older dog , tired of trying to fit in with conventional life. Creative, quiet, just want to live out the rest of our life in a style I've always dreamt of but never achieved. Family is either side of Bristol so probably around the Bath canals would be good. Very little money but great with a paintbrush or needle and thread. Email details please.

Hello, I'm Gaynor. Originally from London but currently living on The Wirral. 

I'm looking to buy a narrowboat to live on in the future, so feel that a long term rental would be a good way to make sure I really want to do this and can cope with the lifestyle change. I've been wanting to do this on and off forever but have been pretty sure I want to do this for about 5 years. I have two dogs also so hope they could be included in my new venture. I think a static boat would be a good start for me and I'd like to stay in the Merseyside area where possible. 

Please contact me if you have something suitable. 

Many thanks.

Hello. 

My partner and I are looking to rent out a houseboat for at least 1 to 2 years anywhere in the southeast of England preferably Kent Essex area We are both on benefits as I care for my partner with mental health issues so the rent is always guaranteed paid. We’re looking at this as an easy way to relax while we save up for future plans.  As a rough budget we are thinking around £150 a week but can discuss this.

Hi my name is Mitchell
 
I am currently looking to live aboard a narrow boat. I have holidayed many times aboard and am looking for the quieter way of life I am single man of 34 and have two young children who live with their mother.
 
It would be amazing for them to come and stay over the weekends on the boat with me to learn a different way of life.
 
I work all over the south coast installing cables for BT and Virgin Media but need a permanent base to live.
 
I am looking for somewhere no more than an hour and half’s drive from Southampton.

Hello.

I am looking for a static boat in 2024-25 near Dundee or St Andrews. Dates and length of term are flexible. I lead a quiet but adventurous lifestyle which includes hill walks, rock climbing, and competitive pool. I have no pets and lead a substance-free lifestyle. I also have experience with cramped or unconventional living situations--including, but not limited to, living out of a tent while carrying out conservation work for an entire summer. 

Living in a houseboat has always been a dream. Even if this advert comes to nothing, I'm glad that I tried to make it a reality. I'd be delighted to speak more by e-mail.

I am currently exploring my options in ways of living. I like the idea of living on a boat for several reasons, the main being the outdoors and the potential cheaper side when compared to renting a flat/house. I am based in the Bournemouth area and am not too fussed on whether the boat is static or one that can be moved, as at this point I’d be renting the boat to get a feel for what it’s like living aboard. My monthly budget would be £400-£700 per month and I’d look to rent short term 3-6 months

My name is Jack and I'm looking for a houseboat/long term rental for myself and my girlfriend from September this year. 

We are both musicians in London and would prefer a static boat for the time being, as this is our first time on water!

Hi there myself and partner Katherine plus our little puppy jack Russell are looking for a live on boat either fixed mooring or moving on the river.

We are currently based in Needingworth near St Ives Cambridge, we're hoping to stay as local to here as possible, but we are flexible, I'm very hands on and we don't mind something that needs some work.

We both enjoy the outdoor life and do a lot of walking.

We are both in our early 40s and currently not working but were in receipt of housing which more than covers where we are living in our static caravan at present.

We hope to here from you with your offers of accommodation. Regards Aaron and Kate.

We are based in London and living on Regents Canal would be nice but we are not too particular about the location. Our budget is between £1000 - £1300 depending on the size and condition. We are respectful of other people's property and are prepared to look after it well.

I'm looking to relocate back to the UK in 2024. Eventually I'd like to buy a narrowboat and find a residential mooring in the Cambridge area as I'll probably be working there. I'd like to try life on a rental narrowboat/barge initially to help me define what I'd like exactly. I don't mind static as I'm looking for a liveaboard rather than a cruiser.

I've no idea of what is reasonable rental costs are like but I'm thinking of a 3-6 month period from April 2024.

I'm a non-smoker. I'm clean, tidy and organised but know little about boats!

I've got a small dog and a cat, both house-trained and well-behaved.

I'm in my early 60s and work from home sometimes.

Hi

I am looking to rent a boat in Essex, Kent or Suffolk for residential purposes.

Ultimately, I want to buy a boat as my permanent residence but need to start somewhere. I do have two very small dogs but they are well behaved. I work mainly from home but when I don't, they would go to my daughter or my mum for the day. My budget is not great so I only want something small. I would happily pay a pet deposit and I have plenty of people who can give me character references as well as my employment references. If you think you could consider me, I would love to hear from you.

We’re both in our 30s, going back to study in September(acupuncture and master in sound design) so we’ll work part time for a while. We both also pay a working studio’s rent so our budget is not very high at the moment. You can contact us directly at the address below:

Physio Looking for a Floating Home 

I'm Benji, and I'm a critical care physiotherapist in London.

I'm really keen on a long term rental option on a boat, ideally with a permanent mooring around East London (easier for on-call) although I'd happily consider all options.

I'm 40, live the single life, a competitive rower and love water, so owning and living on a boat is the dream I can't afford (same as a flat, on an NHS salary, hey!)

Please do feel free to get in touch if you think I'd be a great tenant for you.

We will be selling our flat with a target of end of June/early July and want to rent a houseboat as our home for up to 6 months.

We are in East London and have looked at a spacious boat at Canary Wharf but would prefer to move out of London but within travelling distance, i.e. East Anglia, Southeast and Southwest to Somerset/Dorset.

We recognise this is peak holiday season but would want to avoid holiday stays.

Any suggestions welcome. Many thanks.

I am a young professional in Manchester looking for a narrow/house boat/room to rent.

I work as a freelance artist in primary schools as well as working as a chef in the center of Manchester.

Please get in touch if you'd like to know more about me.

Hi this might be a long shot but who knows? My name is Philip I am married with four kids and we have been forced to leave our home due to harassment. We have found that it is very difficult to find a home under such circumstances and the idea of a boat came to me. If there are any available for a large family I would love to hear from you.

Hi, I'm Georgina and I'm looking for a houseboat to rent in the Bristol area.

 I don't have an urgent move-in date, just putting out feelers right now, but sometime from Summer 2023 would be ideal.

I've lived in Bristol for 11.5 years and I work in sustainable food systems. I'm looking for a static boat within an easy commute to Bristol. I have a car, so somewhere with nearby parking would be ideal but not essential.

In my spare time, I like to swim, knit, read, spend time in nature and with friends. I don't have any pets but I do occasionally dog sit for friends, so the option of a dog friendly boat would be brilliant but not essential. Any questions, please get in touch.

Hi I've been trying to get my hands on a project boat ever since I lost everything in a motorcycle accident but have never found one within budget. I'm looking for a dutch barge running engine water tight with a stove. I'm an ex blacksmith and carpenter. So if you have a boat that may even need a complete refit. Well I'd rent to buy a project or just rent a simple barge journeying up and down the UK. Thanks for reading this. Hope I've intrigued you. Mo

Hello myself and my husband spend all our time by rivers and basically any water we can find. We love the outdoors, fishing and just being surrounded by nature. So we thought why do we live in a flat that we never want to be in. My husband used to have a river cruiser so he knows about boats and suggested we should live on one .so ! Here we are Charlotte and les looking for a.river boat to rent and live on. Contact us via email if you have a boat to rent but is does need to be in the Woking/Lower Thames/Basingstoke Canal/River Wey area for my work.

Hello there I am looking to find a small houseboat for a long term rental, could be a sailing boat or motor cruiser or both, maybe even a static if it’s in a good location, would very much like to stay in Kent if possible, but would consider other areas near London, with good links for a commute, hopefully pet friendly, as have a potential ships cat, I am a non smoker, self employed, with a reliable income, am saving to buy a vessel of my own, but am very keen to live on the water now, as am always happiest when near it, and am looking for affordable accommodation also, so don’t need anything too fancy, would be very interested to see what’s available, thank you

I am looking to rent a narrowboat at least for 6 month preferably longer, I am reliable trustworthy and competent. I have lived aboard before and it was the most rewarding, challenging and amazing experience, I learnt a lot about myself, did things I never thought I could, gained courage and became more considerate of the so many things not least our wonderful environment. I made many new friends along the way and felt became part a very special community and group of people. One day I am hoping to buy one day before I get to old. Currently I would want to be based in and around Surrey area as I am full time caring for my elderly parents in Byfleet. I would considered a mooring but have continuously cruised previously.
