Oh yes what a find..anyone wanting to hire a luxury boat on a beautiful canal then look no further than Duck Island on the Lancaster Canal. Legato is just beautiful, luxury fittings and fixtures, lovely comfy beds with  quality bedding and the 2 bathrooms are just the icing on the cake. Eamonn and Elaine have set the bar very high indeed. We have barged our way around most of Englands inland waterways but never  experienced hire boats  like these before (had a peak at them all!)...simply stunning! - George & Lorraine, Tanya & James - Cheshire

Very much enjoyed our 1st experience on the canal. The boat was fully equipped and very comfortable. Would highly recommend Duck Island. Recommend: Ken Ma chinese - Garstang. The Plough - Galgate. White Cross - Lancaster - Fred, Victoria, Stew & Toni - Wahington

Fantastic boat with fantastic facilities. Not seen or hired a boat as good as this...perfect. Lancaster canal is excellent, pubs views and people top class. 5* boat, well worth the trip even with the mini hurricane - Jason, Rebecca, Charlie & June - Herefordshire

This was our 11th canal boat holiday from all over the country. First time on the Lancaster and what a fab treat. By far the best boat we have ever been on and should be called "a cut above" as it certainly is.I love the 2 bathrooms ( no waiting for the wife to get ready) and the decor and facilities are second to none. We will defo be returning to Duck Island. As Arnie says " I'll be back!" -  Peter & Nicola
