About our Boats


Bedding Each bunk is provided with an under


blanket, fitted sheet, duvet and duvet cover, pillow and pillowcase. All fixed double beds have interior sprung


mattresses and four pillows. Extra bedding is always available.


Carpets & Flooring Many of our boats have fitted carpets


except in the galley and bathroom. All non- carpeted boats have modern vinyl flooring with two or three large carpet mats.


The Galley The well equipped modern galley has a full


size cooker, electric refrigerator and a full inventory of crockery, cutlery, saucepans and cooking utensils (see page 15).


Our Narrow Boats


..... ‘provide the key to unlock the treasures of the beauty and tranquillity of the British canals’. The boats are built on the traditional lines


of the working narrow boat and are designed and fitted out to the highest standards for luxury living afloat.


All boats have been specifically designed


to cater for the needs of an increasingly sophisticated holiday market. The tiller steering is much more precise,


quicker in operation and has more feel than a wheel. It is also a great advantage to have the whole boat in front of you when steering.


Headroom & Bed Size All boats have headroom and bed lengths


of over 6ft 2in (1.88m). For individual heights please see the boat plans. If you have tall crew members please


phone our office for individual bed lengths, as some boats have up to 7ft (2.13m) beds and 6ft 8in (2.03m) headroom.


The Engine All craft have reliable low carbon


emission Kubota diesel engines (no ignition worries or fire dangers) with a single lever control, to operate both the throttle and gear shift. Engine rooms are well sound-proofed to


reduce noise and vibration both inside and outside the boat.
