Canal Boat Designs:-

Though designed to suit 200-year-old waterways, the modern narrowboats feature everything you need to enjoy a high quality self-catering holiday.

With the holiday experience they provide, you could easily be mistaken for thinking that canals were built entirely for pleasure, but their history is strongly industrial.

The first canals were built to take boats just 7ft (2m)wide but 70ft (20m) long, hence the rather unusual proportions of the typical 'narrowboat'. However, you will find that every need is catered for in this intriguing living space.

Appointed to the standard you would expect of a country cottage, you have the added bonus of changing the scenery, without re-packing your suitcase, each day.

Narrow boats / narrowboats come in three stern (back end) types,Cruiser Stern (CS), Semi traditional (ST) and traditional stern (TS). The choice of which is very much a personal thing.
