Launched in 2020, the Graceful Swan pioneers the way in canal experiences as the first all-electric canal dining boat in Great Britain. When dusk falls, the floodlights on the roof of the Graceful Swan illuminate the vistas on both sides of the boat, providing a floodlit scenic cruise while guests enjoy a delightful dining experience, but also wonderful for day time sailings with lunches, afternoon teas, in fact whatever takes your fancy!

Designed to capture your imagination as you step on board to a well-appointed interior, the new electric dining boat caters for up to 54 guests, making it a unique venue for a number of occasions. Private group hire is available up to 36 guests, as well as exclusive private hire for smaller private groups and special celebrations.

Operated by the management of the Rendezvous Hotel the Graceful Swan is moored adjacent to the hotel’s canal side conservatory, on the Leeds Liverpool Canal just one mile south of Skipton. The boat has been specifically designed so that the Rendezvous Hotel’s kitchen team prepares food in advance, which is then finished on board in the purpose-built galley. Offering similar dining choices and quality as enjoyed in the hotel’s restaurants, the Graceful Swan also has a fully licensed bar on board to replicate the sommelier’s choice from the hotel’s wine and drinks selection.
