Eco-friendly boat company GoBoat has announced the opening a new Birmingham location

Boat Due to popular demand, eco-friendly, electric boat company GoBoat has announced the opening of a new Birmingham location, their first site outside of the capital, with bookings now open to the public.  

Groups of up to eight guests can charter the electric boats and set sail, exploring Birmingham’s famed canal network. Situated alongside the lively canalside development, Brindleyplace, in the Westside district of the city, GoBoat will offer guests the opportunity to see the city from an entirely new perspective. 

GoBoat is the perfect activity for friends and family alike, or for anyone looking to do something out of the ordinary and explore the midland city from the waters. Now guests can pack up a picnic, grab a bottle of prosecco and take to the open water, experiencing all that the area has to offer. 

People can choose between one, two, or three-hour trips, enjoying a leisurely cruise, travelling at speeds of 4mph. The experience is both dog and child friendly with life jackets and buoyancy aids provided and no prior boating knowledge necessary, as staff give a full tutorial on land, before guests set sail and steer the boat. 

Grant Sweeney, the co-owner of GoBoat said: “Birmingham has such a rich history with its waterways, and when we launched the business in 2017, we always wanted to expand across the UK and Birmingham has always been at the top of our list as a second home. And with the city linked so closely to its historic waterways, we couldn’t be more excited to launch in such a vibrant and thriving city. We can’t wait to bring Brummies’ back onto the water, but importantly - in a sustainable and enjoyable way. Brindleyplace is the perfect location for us, it’s a vibrant hub within the city and we’re looking forward to becoming part of their growing family. We’re all very excited to see locals on the water, enjoying their amazing city from a new and exciting perspective.”
