We offer boat trips on the Maughan Lass, our specially designed Wheelyboat, for adults and children with disabilities. The Wheelyboat has roll-on / roll-off wheelchair access, and enhanced stability.

Sailings are from April to October on Mondays to Fridays at 11:00 am and 1:30 pm and are subject to suitable weather conditions.

trips can be tailored to suit your wishes and can be half hour to one and a half hours duration.

The cost of a trip is a donation.

PLEASE NOTE: All children, as well as adults who require special assistance, must be accompanied by their nominated responsible person.

To book your trip please contact Overwater Marina. Open 9:30 am to 4:30 pm everyday. Telephone: 01270 812677. Email: Address: Coole Lane, Newhall, Nantwich, Cheshire CW5 8AY.

The Overwater Wheelybus

We also offer dedicated specially adapted transport for those who meet our criteria (see below) and have difficulty arranging their own transport.

The Wheelybus is a 12 seater minibus for passengers, or can carry 3 wheelchairs along with their nominated carers.

Do you need to use this dedicated transport? To comply with our charitable status, this service is only available to those in the community with limited mobility, or who suffer from a social isolation, or have been referred by Audlem Medical Practice, or this service has been arranged by professional carers or trip organisers. The determination that these qualifications have been met is at the discretion of Overwater Marina booking staff.

A donation based on 60p a mile is asked for as the Wheelybus is a “not for profit organisation” run by volunteers.

Please make sure you tell us if you meet our criteria when you make your first enquiry to Overwater Marina (as above).

Detail needed at the time of your initial booking

  • Full contact details: name, address, phone number, email, etc.
  • Date of trip.

This will allow us to plan for the volunteers needed to drive the vehicle, and their assistant, and for the crew for the Maughan Lass Wheelyboat.

You will be contacted to confirm that your booking is in place for the date and time specified, and pick up details for the Wheelybus if this has been requested as part of your reservation.
