A brand new wheelchair accessible Wheelyboat, designed to provide disabled people with independent access to waterborne activities has been launched in Dorset. It'll enable disabled adults and children to join in the fun on the River Frome.
At 5.3m long it is a versatile craft with a carrying capacity of eight people including wheelchairs. It is fitted with a drive-from-wheelchair console enabling people even with quite severe impairments to experience the thrill of driving the boat themselves.
