Our stay near Fowey was greatly enhanced by having a boat for the week. Maurice provides a brilliant service, delivery and super training - we couldn’t have asked for more and loved using the boat to get around from place to place as well just for cruising and fishing. Thanks to Maurice a great holiday was even better!
