Your Helmsman, Boat Mover and Boating Coach

Giles, Your Helmsman.

Picture of Giles Williams

Iā€™m Giles Williams, a boat mover trading as Your Helmsman.

When you can't move a boat on the waterways yourself, I can do that for you.

I promise a swift, professional move for a fixed, low price.
And you can get a clear estimate of my fee and availability in less than a minute.


I logged over five hundred hours steering boats in 2019, including moving widebeams, smaller and larger narrowboats, and vintage boats, on rivers and canals, and often to a tight schedule.
Here are some recent testimonials.

I love moving boats on the UK's canals and rivers, It's why I became a boat mover. I take my craft very seriously, and I take great pride in manoeuvring boats with accuracy and skill. I'm a firm believer in continuously improving my skills and abilities too. I'm in the process of becoming and Inland Waterways Helmsmanship Certificate Instructor, and have recently acquire my VHF short range radio certificate so that I can navigate waterways where a VHF radio is required. My business is moving your boat, but it's also my passion. I hope I can help wou with a truly professional move for your boat. If you use my trip planning page it will produce a quick estimate of the days needed to move your boat. I charge per day so each boat move is calculated on that basis. You can find other boat movers. But in my experience I doubt you'll find one as well reviewed, committed and professional as I am. Thank you for reading this. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Giles was the true professional from start to finish. All stages were well planned and explained meticulously. Contact was above and beyond expectation and any problem that occurred was dealt with in a similar fashion. Very reasonable rates given the responsibility involved. I would thoroughly recommend ā€˜ Your Helmsman ā€˜ for any boat move. Thank you Giles from a very satisfied and happy customer.
Giles moved my narrowboat for me when I was laid up and couldn't reach it. His professional move was very, very much appreciated.
