ABC Leisure Group has great experience of managing all types of multi-usage, and multi-owned canal boats. The original company, Alvechurch Boat Centres, has been in existence for over 40 years.

Along with operating a hire fleet of over 200 boats we also operate boats for other organisations and groups such as: The Bank of England, The RAF, The Navy, The BBC, Diamond Resorts, Ex Challenger Syndicates, Birmingham Health Trust, Canalboat Club and many more.

We are unique in that we own and operate nine strategically placed marinas and two boat building operations which means we can, if required, personally provide almost all the services needed for the operation of a canal boat during its entire life. However, we also manage boats which are located on other companies' marinas, so using our own bases is not a prerequisite, although we can offer a financial benefit to those that do.
ABC Leisure Group has been building and operating a hire fleet and providing full marina services to canal users for over 40 years, with long experience of everything to do with canal boats and boating holidays.

As canal boat brokers, ABC Leisure Group can offer you the opportunity to view a number of boats in one location. We also operate brokerage from different bases around the country and our staff are always happy to discuss the merits of different types of boats to help you make a decision and find the boat that best suits your needs.

Buying a boat is very personal and you may find you like the "feel" of a boat which on paper you would not have initially considered. Again the marina staff are there to help you understand the possibilities and suggest layout or equipment changes to help the boat meet your exact requirements.
