The Boating Lake, Redcar

In 2015 Lyndsay Eccles obtained 6 electric hire boats from us, and despite the sad closure of the steel plant on Teesside, and pressure on the local economy, these continued to operate until 2018 on The Boating Lake at Redcar.

The lake is a large shallow Victorian piece of water beside the vast beach, with concrete sides and a cafe and boathouse, making it ideal for a boat hire business using our pond boats as well as several rowing boats and pedalos.

The electric boats were happily moored afloat overnight under fitted covers, with the batteries taken ashore for storage and charging.

Sadly with challenging local economic conditions, The boats were sold in early 2019, but are now thriving at the new Miniport at Intu Lakeside https://intu.co.uk/lakeside/leisure/miniport
