Welcome to The Wheelyboat Trust

The Wheelyboat Trust is a registered charity dedicated to providing mobility impaired people with the opportunity and freedom to enjoy waters large and small all over the UK in our wheelchair accessible Wheelyboats. Our role is to help and encourage venues open to the public to acquire Wheelyboats for their mobility impaired visitors and to help groups and organisations acquire Wheelyboats for their own use.
