Over the years that Boatshed Grand Union has been selling boats on the inland waterways, several questions have recurred time and time again.

I am therefore excited to announce that Phil and I have created an ebook about living on a boat packed with information, advice and beautiful colour photographs. It primarily deals with living on the UK inland waterways but many of the topics covered will be useful to anyone considering living on a boat.

I’ve been living on a boat for twelve years and Phil has been involved with boats and boating for many years. If there’s anything you feel we’ve not covered in the book we’d be happy to advise you personally so please do get in touch via our contact page.
