Specially adapted boat

Our canal boat underwent £50,000 renovation in 2012 including an engine overhaul, flooring repairs, windows refurbishment, fixtures and fittings replaced, and new galley facilities. The boat is specially designed and equipped for disabled people. At 55 ft. long and 12.5 ft. wide, she is wider than standard canal boats, giving you comfortable access for wheelchairs. Facilities include a medical bed, hoist tracking systems and a wheelchair battery charger. Our boat is adapted so that severely disabled people can enjoy steering.
