Together with Kiki Too, we have now got the full compliment of Marine Cruises’ boats available for viewing, now that the hire boat season slows down. It’s usually very difficult to view these Narrowboats for sale whilst they’re on hire and out and about, but they now look fabulous all lined up together and ready to view.
The thought of an ex-hire boat is usually the marmite choice of buying a Narrowboat. But they are really worth considering before being dismissed out of sight. Ex-hire boats are:
- The most serviced and best maintained boats cruising the canals
- Extremely practical layouts making the most of the space available on a Narrowboat
- Robustly fitted out to survive the rigours of hire boat cruising
- Replacement items, especially for the fit-out, are easy to find and at a reasonable price
- A good blank canvas to work with if you’re planning making personal changes to the layout
If you’re thinking of buying a Narrowboat – please don’t forget to think ex Hire Boats.
