In the spring of 2019, Miniport Ships Ltd opened their third site, at Intu Lakeside in Thurrock, Essex. With a large lake the electric boat hire rides are priced for a local boat ride in the immediate vicinity of the shopping centre, or a half hour trip across the whole lake.
The shopping centre is packed with leisure facilities at Lakeside, and the Miniport has thrived from the start.
Our various electric hire ship models look fantastic afloat - there were 9 electric hire boats at Lakeside in 2019.
Miniport Ships do thrive on bigger lakes provided there is not too much wind, and the boat ride business has done particularly well in this regard.
