England is famous for it’s many narrow boats. And for a good reason: the typical distinctive design makes it possible to cruise the narrow canals of the United Kingdom. These narrowboats were originally built as working boats from the 18th till the 20th century, especially to carry goods. That is all history now, but the narrow boats are more hip and happening than ever!
Narrowboats for friends, lovers and families
Nowadays the narrow boats are carrying families, lovers and friends during unforgettable holidays. Some of the vessels are way over a century old, upgraded to suit the needs of the modern traveller. Other boats are newly built, but all of them have the same characteristic design: about 7 feet wide, maximum 72 feet long and painted with traditional designs, ready to welcome you aboard!
