Any Questions? 2

In light of the fact that lots of our new readers are not necessarily boaters, I've decided to start a regular(ish!) feature called 'Any Questions?'. So, if there's anything about narrowboating, or living afloat  that you're curious about then please get in touch, by email, facebook, twitter, or formspring! Here's today's question and answer.

Hi there Amy, your life aboard Lucky Duck sound wonderful. I have always loved riverboats and wonder if you could point me in the right direction as far as finding a boat etc., and a rough estimate of the cost? Thanks

The price of a narrowboat can vary so wildly (ours was £25500, but they can go up to £200,000!) that it would be best to head to boat sales sites and just browse around and see what is available. Price will depend upon what you want from a boat, its age, fit-out and all sorts of other things. Head to Apollo Duck for hundreds of boats for sale privately and there are loads of brokerage companies selling boats too. Whilton Marina is a good place to start, but a google search will bring up many others.
Good luck!

  1. I have always wondered how easy it is to navigate one of your boats and whether there is a 'driving test'.
