As well as our usual highlighted Boat of the Moment, this week we are featuring three boats that have been reduced in price. If you’re hoping to pick up a bargain to begin enjoying this summer weather on the canals we may have the boat you are looking for right now. Click on the links below to see a full slideshow of images for each boat.

Trip boat 70ft narrowboat now £45,000

This wonderful large trip boat, (pictured) is being sold as an MCA coded trip boat for use in a business. She could also be converted to other use. She can also be sold in conjunction with an ongoing business on one of the loveliest parts of the Grand Union Canal, near Milton Keynes.

She is well equipped and newly painted with a solid queue of bookings.

There is also a day boat and permission to run a hire boat from the same wharf which is rented at favourable terms.

Viking 26 Cruiser now £11,950

This classic cruiser (pictured below) is at present being used as a liveaboard in central London and has everything required. It would also make an ideal pied a terre or weekend cruiser.

In good working order throughout, the boat has had a new hood, new front cabin lining and a new water tank during 2013. The outboard has also been serviced and is regularly used.

It is cosy in winter, with gas heating and an electric heater in the stern cabin. The boat is well equipped as a liveaboard and has both solar power and a suitcase generator for backup.

Narrowboat 69ft Semi Trad Ex Hire Boat now £29,950

This is one of a pair of ex hire boats that we have for sale in Bedfordshire. They are well built and superbly maintained.

These boats would make a great buy for a community boat or Youth Group project as they are, or could easily be re-fitted as a liveaboard or family cruiser. They can be refitted at a local boat yard to the buyers specification at preferential trade rates.


Appointments to view these boats can be arranged in advance six days a week directly with Jan.
