No Fixed Abode is a PROFILE 33. This  is an affordable 33 ft cruiser equipped for  the ideal family cruising or fishing  holiday.


The boat is ideal for families of 2 adults and up to 3 children It has a forward cabin which consists of  two single berths,the seating  in the galley  area converts to a single and a pull out double  in the upper salon.

Included with the rental are, fresh  towels, single and or double sleeping bags with silk  liners (a liner is a a removable inner for the sleeping bag) and is freshly laundered for each guest.

The bathroom consists of an electric toilet (if you have ever tried pumping out a traditional boat toilet you will find this amazing),hot and cold running water and a small shower.

The galley area has a 4 ring gas hob and a small built in holding oven and grill. The sink has hot and cold running water and there is a three way  fridge. All cooking utensils, crockery and glasses are supplied.

The steering position is inside the boat soon a cold damp day  close the sliding rear doors put on the central heating and cruise in comfort!.

When the sun is shining, open the door, the windows and pull back the large sun roof and you have the best of both worlds.


The boat is easily managed by even the most inexperienced Captain and it has the added bonus of a  “bow thruster” which makes it very manoeuvrable.

Before commencing your cruise/fishing trip you will be taken out on a hands on familiarising exercise where you will get the feel of  how the boat handles and how to use the bow thruster to its best berthing advantage.


The boat if fully equipped with lifejackets for all crew members and  conforms to the Waterway Bylaws.

The boat had everything we needed to make out holiday run smoothly, I am looking forward to coming again, and thanks for setting me up with the dinghy.

Thank you all

Hi David. I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip on Tranquillity. Before the trip Catherine, my wife, was a confirmed landlubber and wouldn’t go near a boat. She absolutely loved the whole experience: boat, the Shannon, the wildlife, the serenity. She even enjoyed living on the boat and couldn’t get over the fact that we had a shower each! She found handling the boat very easy once she realised it steers like a car. It had been 20 years since I was last on the Shannon and I forgot how beautiful it was. I feel certain we will be back! Thanks again!

Hello David
June and I would just like to thank you for making our holiday so enjoyable . Despite the weather being so bad the service we received was way beyond anything we have ever experienced with any outer hire company. We have been hiring boats on the Shannon for more years than we care to mention and we can honestly say this was by far our best experience yet. The amount of time you spent showing us the boat suggesting places to see and recommending eateries and watering holes (and places to avoid) was just great. I know you are considering retiring but we hope you don’t as we are already planning our holiday for 2017 and we will be returning to Tranquility and hope to see you still at the Helm

All the best

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!!

I am attaching a few photos from the trip.

Kind Regards,

The Quinns

We hired the tranquility for 3 nights in may as part off my husbands 40th birthday present what an amazing experience. The service we got from the minute we arrived until we left was outstanding couldn’t recommend this company enough in our group there was 2 couples and one couple had to leave on the Sunday and to save us sailing back up Dave came and picked them up from where we were docked. The boat was spotless clean and nothing seemed to be a problem best holiday ever and we can’t wait to do it again.
