Home – Nestaway Portable Boats


Inflatable, Folding & Sectional Boats For Sale


Here you’ll find the World’s leading collection of Folding, Inflatable & Sectional Dinghies, Canoes & Kayaks.

Nestaway Boats is often referred to as “The Portable Boat Specialist”, with an unmatched level of knowledge and expertise in the selection and sale of practical and lightweight boats that are easy to use.

What does that mean for you? It means:

  • Boats that are Easier to Transport & Store
  • Boats that are Easier to Own
  • Boats that can be Taken Where No Other Boat Can Go

Whilst our offering is selective, we do now have a very wide range of sectional, nesting, inflatable and folding boats. The advantage of that is we’ve no need to push one particular brand or portable boat type… we enjoy listening to what you want from your new boat, and helping you make the right choice.

Besides inflatable, folding and portable boats we also offer the petrol and electric outboard motors you may wish to put with them. In recent years Electric Outboards – which are ideally suited to portable boats – have become a big part of our business and we are the only UK dealer who stocks both leading brands: Torqeedo and Epropulstion.

We hope you enjoy our website, and we look forward to hearing from you.

PLEASE NOTE IF PLANNING TO VISIT:  you can come and see us, but Social Distancing Rules (and the size of our premises) mean this will need to be by appointment only. Please do not turn up unexpected, we may not have full-time staff coverage, and/or may have to turn you away if other customers are present. We are (and have been for a while) at 5 Avro Business Park, Mosquito Way, Christchurch, Dorset BH23 4FN. It’s only 3 miles away from the old place so won’t make much difference to your journey, however there are still some “ghost entries” on the internet that will tell you the old address. And if your satnav can’t find BH23 4FN – which is a new-ish postcode for new -ishindustrial estate – try instead Grange Road BH23 4JE. (Avro Business Park is located just off Grange Road.)
