Peace of mind with our credentials

It’s imperative to us that our competitions are fair and transparent. We’ve therefore taken the following measures to ensure our competitions are appropriately run:

  • SOLICITOR APPROVED: Our website and terms & conditions have been reviewed by a third party solicitor who has confirmed we are running the competition in accordance with the relevant laws and regulations (e.g. The Gambling Act 2005 and Advertising Standards).
  • SECURE PAYMENT METHODS: We only accept major payment methods (Visa, Mastercard, Apple Pay, Google Pay & PayPal) and we never see or store your card details.

Your Questions Answered

What are my odds of winning?

The odds of winning the boat with 1 ticket is 1 in 35,000. This increases to 1 in 7,000 with 5 tickets, or 1 in 1,000 if you have 35 tickets. To put this into perspective, these odds are 102 times higher than playing the lottery!

Is it the boat in the photos that I’ll be winning?

The boat in the photos is one we recently made and the prize will be very similar. We’ll build the boat especially for the winner after the prize draw has taken place, and the winner can choose from a range of design options making it unique to them. This includes the colour palette, fixtures & fittings, worktop surfaces, flooring, cupboard facing designs, tile options and the cherry on top… the boat’s name!

Does the boat come with mooring?

A 1-year Canal & River Trust boat licence is included with the prize. This means you can moor the boat for FREE (on a continuous cruising basis) along any public stretch of the canals & rivers that the CRT manages. We will offer our knowledge and guidance to the winner as we’ve cruised the majority of the UK waterways network! We firmly believe that continuous cruising is the most fulfilling and exciting way to experience the boating lifestyle! Alternatively, there are plenty of long-term residential moorings available across the country to suit a range of budgets (and are generally much cheaper than rent!). These can be found at marinas, boatyards and in towns/cities, should the winner wish to take up a more permanent location.

What happens if you don’t sell enough tickets?

In the unlikely event that we don’t sell enough tickets to cover the cost of the boat build, then we may need to cancel the competition. If we decide to do this, we will refund all ticket purchases (including payment fees) so there is absolutely no risk to you in taking part. We are however confident the competition will go ahead as planned, as we’ve had amazing feedback and support so far!

How many tickets are on sale?

The total amount of tickets on sale for the boat competition is limited to 35,000.

How do I enter the competition?

The easiest way to enter the competition is to answer the simple competition question and buy tickets online. Entrants may also enter the competition using the free postal entry method.

How many tickets can I buy?

The number of entries is limited to 75 per person.

Why are you running this competition?

Having lived on boats for years, we have experienced the magic and freedom that liveaboard boating brings. We want more people to experience this magic, and we are running this competition so that one lucky winner can have a life-changing prize. Not only do they win their dream adventure home, but they will also experience the boating lifestyle that we are so passionate about! And with a portion of the ticket proceeds going to charity, we’re together helping a few more people too.

Who can enter the competition?

The competition is open to all residents of Great Britain aged 18 and over.

Is the competition legit?

It sure is! It’s imperative to us that we run a fair and transparent competition. We’re a UK incorporated company, have thorough competition terms & conditions, we’ll publish all entrants names on our website, and the prize draw will be conducted LIVE on Instagram. We’ve even had a solicitor review our website to make sure we adhere to all relevant laws and regulations. Plus we’re super friendly and kind people! See our credentials for more info.

Will the competition definitely go ahead?

We’re confident that the competition will go ahead as planned, but should we not sell enough tickets to cover the cost of the boat build then we may need to cancel the competition. If this happens, we’ll refund all ticket purchases (including payment fees) so there is absolutely no risk to you in taking part.

Will the closing date or draw be postponed?

The closing date or draw date will only be postponed in exceptional circumstances (as per our terms & conditions), but we are confident that the competition will take place on the current closing date. So see you for the LIVE draw on Instagram on 30 November 2023 @ 9pm!
