The Fishing Boat
Add to wish list

Product Code: EPPHC090785

From £2,960 ex. VAT

You won’t need to travel to the sea when you can fish from your own boat in your own playground.

The Fishing Boat is a wonderful low level play platform.  It is accessible for children of varying agilities and encourages children to work together to develop wonderful stories as a backdrop to imaginative play games.

Our play boat has a decking base that sits below 0.6m (2ft) at all points and can therefore be safely installed on either grass or tarmac.

A wheelhouse or cabin sits proudly on the deck and has an open doorway and lots of windows so that children can keep an eye on the ship’s captain and teachers can keep an eye on the crew.  The cabin is fitted with seats to the front allowing the crew to have a rest from time to time.

Seating is also fitted to the sides of the bow of the playboat.

The bow of the boat has two large open portholes through which the children can crawl to make a surprise entry or exit from the boat.

The Fishing Boat is available in two sizes though the dimensions of the wheelhouse remain the same.

A pitched roof can be added to the wheelhouse to make it more sheltered; this incurs an extra cost 

*Please note the name plaque and steering wheel are not included

  • Guarantee
    • The product is guaranteed against structural and design defect for 3 years - this does not cover acts of vandalism, misuse or exceptional natural events

     As long as the maintenance instructions are adhered to, the product will last substantially longer.

    Maintenance Required

    • Ensure that an air gap is maintained under the base and around all sides; check on an regular basis to ensure that there is no build-up of debris.
    • Check edges and corners regularly to ensure that knocks to the structure have not caused a splinter hazard, if that has occurred sand down with sandpaper and re-treat the sanded area.
    • The wood preservative  will need re-coating every so often; (the same type of time scale as your house) this does depend on the prevailing weather conditions but would typically be 2 - 4 years.

    Be aware

    • If decking becomes slippery in the wet this is due to microscopic fungi on the surface, wash off with a diluted bleach solution.
    • If small mould growths appear on the inside this is due to lack of air circulation, wipe down with a diluted bleach solution as soon as visible.
  • Delivery & Installation
    • Delivery and installation to the UK mainland (with the exception of anything above Edinburgh/Glasgow) is included in the price of this product.
