Mallory is a handsome one-owner semi-trad stern Bridgeman Boatbuilders' narrowboat with a Josher bow and rivet details to the hull giving classic lines. She has been fitted out to a high standard by the first owner (a joiner and builder by trade) and the comfortable live-aboard specification incorporates some very clever design features. She was first placed in the water in December 2015 when she was issued with a new Boat Safety Certificate. Viewing is highly recommended.
'Pea Green' is spacious one owner live-aboard with much storage for two people built by the respected builder The Northwich Boat Company, with additional interior fit out by the owner.

She is ideally suited for use as an apartment boat but is equally well equipped to take out cruising on the broads. A survey from 2014 is available to view. Mooring available by separate negotiation.
Lucy Alexander is a cleverly laid out compact wide beam boat that has been specially designed for disabled use with a number of clever features built in.

There is also a separate ramp to allow easy access from the shore onto the rear deck.
Lilypad is a two owner, 70ft high specification live-aboard boat built by respected builder Debdale Wharf.

Moorings are available by separate negotiation.

Dolly is a cleverly laid out compact, two-berth narrowboat built by Liverpool Boats and fitted out by Jeremiah Boats Ltd.

The saloon features a comfortable chair that converts to single bed allowing for versatile 3 berth accommodation along with the Pullman style dinette.
