Style Of Boat

#Canalboats can be any length but typically larger ones are 60-70ft. The stern will vary in design to meet different needs. A large external space at the back is good for recreational cruising and entertaining but reduces the available living space. A typical live aboard vessel will have less space at the rear to give more internal accommodation.

Canal Boat Basics

‘Canal boat’ is the term often used to refer to narrow boats and wide beam barges. However all #narrowboats (actually a modern use of the two words!) are 6ft 10 inches wide.  They tend to be made of steel, tough wood and GRP (glass reinforced plastic) are also found.  Wide beams are more than 6ft 10inches wide, with Dutch Barges being the name used to describe the widest of these vessels.

#Cruising  & Power #Boating

An increasing number of owners are choosing to berth their motor boat to #Liverpool . Vessels become a weekend pied a terre to enjoy everything that the city has to offer. When the mood takes them they enjoy a day out to Hilbre Island or North Wales; and slightly longer passages to Northern Ireland and Scotland are convenient.
