Manchester River Cruises

Manchester River Cruises is owned and run by Graham Salt. With over twenty years of experience you can be sure that whether you are looking for a party boat, a corporate venue with a difference or a going to see a Manchester United match you will have an unforgettable time. Princess Katherine with an overall length of 65ft, a 15ft beam and a draft of 4ft 6in, provides fixed seating around tables for a maximum of 120 passengers. Its certificate licenses it as ‘a ship plying in smooth waters’, although the craft is very stable in the sometimes choppy conditions on the exposed sections of the canal. Although its all-steel hull dates only from 1988, it is powered by a reconditioned 1952 Manchester-built Gardener 6LW 8.5 litre diesel engine; its smooth 94hp propels the boat at a maximum speed of 11 knots. Those used to sailing inland will appreciate that this breakneck speed is ideal for the 100 – 200ft width of the waters (boat wash isn’t a problem), and to ensure a speedy and reliable service. The Princess Katherine is moored in the Salford Quays near the Lowry Center, overlooked by MediaCity UK. Let Manchester River Cruises make your next event unforgettable. Whether you are looking to get the party started with a bang or you want to impress clients with a corporate drinks event the Princess Katherine is a venue with a difference. On a Manchester canal cruise you will set sail on the Manchester Ship Canal from the Salford Quays and have a choice of different routes. The Princess Katherine is the largest leisure barge in the Salford Quays and has indoor and outdoor seating for 90+ guests.
Q Cancellation of Service

Whilst the Company will endeavour to operate the cruise as agreed and advertised, no liability will be accepted for any cancellation, breakdown or unpunctuality, however caused. The Hirer must also be aware that the company is under contract to travel to all Manchester United Home fixtures and this will have precedence over any other booking: whilst the Company will strive not to take a booking when a home game is scheduled the Hirer must be aware that fixtures are occasionally altered. In this event, another cruise date or time will be offered, if this is not possible then all monies paid to the Company will be returned to the Hirer in full and there will be no further liabilities to the Company.

Amazing Experience!

5/ 5

If you are looking for a perfect cruise on the river, try the Manchester river cruise. It is known by many to be the best around town. The last cruise I enjoyed was on the Princess Katherine barge. The service on board was very nice and I enjoyed every bit of the cruise. From the staff to the food to other people on board. It was amazing.
