Many people enjoy narrowboating each year, some are lucky enough to do it more than once a year, but often many never get to purchase their own boat. An affordable way to cruise the canals in a boat that belongs to you is to purchase a Boat Share.
This is a way to own part (normally 8% or 4 weeks use per year) of a boat to enable you to enjoy our beautiful canals, but still share the initial purchase price and annual running costs. The boat is managed for you so that you spend your time cruising rather than on administration and maintenance.
If you are thinking of buying a share or you would like to know more why not come along to the open day on Saturday 28th January from 11 till 2. You’ll have the opportunity to view the boat and chat to staff about how the scheme operates.
A share in the boat is a one off payment of £8,250 and for that you will have 4 weeks holiday per year on the boat. In addition there is a monthly direct debit payment of around £80 which covers, moorings, insurance, licence and maintenance. You can view a virtual tour of the boat here. For more details and for a 360 tour of the boat go to the Boat Share website.
