Thanks for the usual friendly welcome, including the 'welcome back' chocolates and card. We have cruised in Dan's Drum twice and Hum Drum this time, can't decide which boat I prefer so will have to come back again to make up our minds - wide or narrow - both great fun, clean and reliable.

A huge thankyou to all at Silsden Boats...we have just had a fantastic holiday aboard Sams Drum.
The Boat was above our expectations and was only eaqualled by the service of the team at the Boat Yard.
This was our first time on the Leeds & Liverpool, and first with Silsden Boats...we will be back...thanks again.

Being virgin narrow boaters and not exactly in the first flush of our youth we were a little apprehensive to say the least when we embarked on our 3 nighter. Nevertheless thanks to all the advice and guidance received by Silsden Boats we had the best time ever on a holiday. The interior of the boats was stunningly appointed with every facility one could think of. The route from Silsden to Gargrave is so picturesque and the beauty can only be really appreciated by canal. There were the occasional scary moment but as the staff at Silsden Boats advised "just make sure you have fun!" And we did just that. Thank you Gwens Drum for being a sprightly little lady and thanks to all the friendly staff at Silsden Boats. We WILL be back.

Jenny's Drum-- this is the fifth time we have 'sailed' with silsden boats, from meet and b greet to return of the boat, the service is second to none. The whole team are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The small touches, such as the welcome back card, chocolates and wine kick started our trip in style...I requested the sun for a week, and weirdly silsden boats provided that too!!! They're the best looking boats on the canal! With everything you need on board! A slight mishap from one of our 'Virgin' crew involving a wetwipe and the loo was speedily fixed by Steve, from silsden boats. He is efficient, friendly, gets the job done and is always ready for a laugh! An asset to the silsden boat team! I'd like to recommend silsden boats to everyone! But I won't because I want to keep them a secret and to myself!!;-)... Whilst I'm now experienced on this stretch of the canal and with 'our' boat, each time there's something else to see! Bank newton was closed this time, but still we managed to conquer the mighty bingley five rise!! And got the lock staff to do madonnas Vogue dance after!! They too were brilliant!! Dunno if the tourists at the cafe found us as amusing as we played the song 'climb every mountain' as we went back up the 5! Still we entertained the lock staff!! Anyway thanks again Barbara, Richard and Jenny and team! Great holiday!! Next time wide beam perhaps! If I dare! Though always have a soft spot for Jenny's Drum.. Cheers and regards!! Xx

Marley Drum 17 - 21 February 2014.
I wish to thank you for providing us with such a lovely, well maintained, fully equipped and very clean boat, for our short holiday. Your warm welcome, helpful advice and guidance, supported by ample literature and DVD, really enabled us to make the most of our enjoyable time on Marley Drum. I can highly recommend you and your boats.

By far the best value narrowboats on the canals.The staff are friendly and informative,the dvd is a novel way to instruct newcomers, with a copy in the onboard instructions it is brilliant.We really enjoyed the week (even the rain didnt dampen our enjoyment)and we look forward to next year when (hopefully)we will be going for 2 weeks.

Thank you Silsden boats.

Spent 3 nights onboard Marleys Drum from October 13th, first time for all four adults and two kids and we all loved it. The boat was clean and great fun to live on. Would book with these guys again.

We're just home from our 4 night experience in Molly's Drum; what great fun! (Apart from Wednesday afternoon's monsoon!) All of the team gave everything to make our boating experience truly memorable; much appreciated!
Thank you ALL so much! We'll be back.

We wish to thank you for a very enjoyable holiday, our first time on a canal boat. Besides the boat being clean and everything well organised, your greatest asset is your team. Due to our own fault we put water into our sewerage tank until it overflowed. We had a family party that day and thought all would be lost. But from the handling of our initial phone call to the farewell of the engineer we knew we were in competent hands wanting to help us to have a good holiday. Your guy never made us feel silly but did everything to keep this special day in or holiday a success, please pass on our thanks.
We will return but we wont make the same mistakes.

We just wanted to thank you all so very much for the holiday that we had with you. We had a great family time and you and your team were so lovely that you were the icing on the cake! Many many apologies again for the accident we had and many many thanks for how nice and understanding you all were!

Hoping to see you again (providing you will let us!!)
