“Amanda and I would like to thank the team for a thoroughly enjoyable cruising experience. With the MBM’s guidance, support and reassurance, we have significantly enhanced our boating skills and confidence, ensuring our boating is much more relaxing and enjoyable in the future. The social side of the cruise was amazing, we met some wonderful people, ate at some fantastic restaurants and loved the pontoon parties. We learnt a lot 
from other people’s boating experiences and 
came away with a lot 
more boating knowledge.”
