Narrowboat For Sale Pix - Illustrate Canal Boating Holidays

These high quality pictures of a private narrowboat for sale show exactly how the interior is laid out and give a very good impression of what to expect from canal boating holidays in an English narrowboat. Many live aboard boats are quite different, but this one really is just like a hire boat.

This is quite tempting really, the sort pf boat that gets hired out for narrowboat canal holidays, but in this case for sale after having been used by a couple for six months. The boat looks immaculate , but was in fact built in 1989 so it's 21 years old and they do tend to depreciate with age, so at less than full length for just under £30,000 maybe a bargain, or it may be just a bit steep. Not sure about this one.
