About Bennett Boatyard
Holiday Boating- we make it easy for you! Bryher Boat and Kayak Hire from Bennett Boatyard allows you to explore the tranquil clear waters of Scilly at your own pace. Cruise between the islands, visit uninhabited shores, fish from your boat (fishing lines available to hire), take a picnic, moor up and explore... The possibilities are endless and with a safety boat doing regular patrols and staff always ready to lend a hand if you are at all unsure, this really is an option available to all. We are based at Green Bay on Bryher. We have hire points on St Martin's and deliver to Tresco by arrangement. If you are staying on the other islands, please make your way to Bryher, Tresco or St Martin's for the day and we will fit the hire around your inter-island launch times. We hire small boats with outboards, a range of sailing dinghies and stable sit on top kayaks. We provide buoyancy aids, full safety equipment and give comprehensive instruction on boat handling. Wetsuits and fishing lines also available to hire. We hire from 9.30am to 6pm with half day hires from 9.30am - 1pm or 2pm - 6pm. We can also arrange hire times around inter-island launches. We are here to help, call us to discuss your hire requirements. Thinking of keeping your boat in Scilly? We offer year round storage for all boats in our safe and sheltered enclosure. We cover all aspects of boat care and provide a full maintenance and repair service to give you a hassle free boating holiday.

Dan looks after our boat for us and offers exceptional service. He helped us to ship it over here, when we arrive it's always on a mooring. Any tips or advice he's always there. Superb thanks Dan.

Pleasurable afternoon spent exploring the coves of st Martins, Tresco and Samson in a 16' motor launch from Bennetts. The rental pickup was very quick and equipment well explained by knowledgable staff. The cost was reasonable.

Friendly staff. We hired a double kayak for half a day and paddled to old Grimsby on Tresco for an ice cream. Great way to see more of the island.
