We have added an all-weather canopy all-weatherser Tranquility. This removable canopy offers protection from the Irish weather (should you need it) while cruising on the Shannon.

Our two luxury cruisers are berthed at Tara Marina only a 10 minute drive by car from Carrick-on-Shannon.

Our aim is to provide personal service and tuition coupled with luxury cruising at a very affordable price.

No Fixed Abode is our  cruiser, aboard which we have had many years of cruising pleasure on the River Shannon and Lough Erne waterways. In 2013 we decided to refurbish this boat and make it available for others to enjoy.

This  has been very  popular and as a result we have purchased another cruiser, 'Tranquility' which with its bright and airy interior was enjoyed by everyone this season

Both boats are easy to manoeuver as they have bow thruster which makes berthing etc very straightforward even for the most inexperienced captain.

We are able to advise on cruising areas, local activities and places to see along the way to  maximumise the enjoyment for your holiday.

Both boats are insured and safety equipment complies with the Waterways Bylaws

Hi David, We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the week we had on "No Fixed Abode". The boat was spotless when we arrived, better equipped than most rental houses, and fun and easy to control, once we got the hang of it. It was also good to know that you were on hand should anything go awry on us. I would thoroughly recommend your boat to anyone thinking about a cruise on the Shannon, and the boys ( 9 and 12) loved it. You even managed to organise half decent weather for us!!

"We would not have got the same level of service from the bigger boat rental companies and we were extremely grateful for the help and support the owner gave us on our first cruise."

Valerie from Dublin

"We had previously hired from the big rental companies Emerald star & Carrickcraft.We found them to be inflexible, expensive & their boats were quite clinical. David was flexible & suited our timetable."

Sean Toner and family

"Everything was perfect, including your tutorial, and I can honestly say it was the most relaxing weeks holiday we have ever had."

Barry Noyce and family

"I would like to thank both Liam and yourself for all your help in making our weekend spent aboard No Fixed Abode most enjoyable and relaxing."
