This vessel is a purpose built traditional design steel narrowboat with a semi trad stern, suitable for cruising our waterways in the UK. In April of this year the owners commissioned a valuation by an independant surveyor on this boat. LOUNGE Entering the into the boat from the double doors at the bow end there is a fitted "L" shape seating area with storage units to left and right hand sides. Further back is the shower room with toilet and insert vanity wash basin the seperate shower cubicle is linned out with "Formic type" waterproof panels.The toilet is a manual vacuum operated flush into a holding tank.

Handover completed and the hirers sent off on their first narrowboat holiday after joining me for a glass of champagne to launch the boat.


Job done and no rest as our next shell arrives from Colecraft for a complete fitout and engine installation. The Isuzu 42hp engine with twin alternators to enable the charging of the battery bank whilst cruising. On Aqua Vie we’re utilising the space underneath the steps for additional wardrobe space. Above: Single berth cabin, the bed to the right can be moved across to form a double berth if necessary. Call Peter today for a no obligation chat, that luxury bedroom refit could be nearer and a lot less expensive than you thought. Here the mood lighting creates a relaxed area whilst surrounded by the signature white walls of the oak lining, oak flooring and bespoke media unit.
The Betty B is a 60ft semi cruiser stern, bespoke narrowboat built on a Colecraft shell and fitted out by our highly skilled boat building team here at Aqua Narrowboats. The reverse layout design creates a sociable area at the stern of the boat whilst cruising. The extending dinette requested by Richard has already proved popular, the bespoke boat build after next will also be having the same style of dinette. The cross bed flap design makes it quick and simple to make up – no more struggling with pulling out extending frames!
A large custom made mirror has been fitted to the bulkhead to create a feeling of extra space. The base of each cupboard contains a large storage area – you can just make out the access doors at the bottom of the photo. Therefore half can be accessed from the rear deck when cruising and the cupboard nearest to the camera can be accessed when inside the boat.
An impressive specification plus a choice of paint colours and fabrics enables you to make this boat your own, and for those needing more space a 60ft version is available. With the more traditional layout of the bedroom at the stern, this boat still has all the contemporary touches you would expect from a floating home, and a range of interior and exterior choices personalise the boat. Add to that a host of extras included as standard and these really are extraordinary narrowboats. Available at a variety of levels of finish, the Sailaway gets you on your way to creating a truly unique boat that you can be proud of.
The survey together with the valuation is available to inspect and the price is as per valuation.

Whilst every care has been taken in the preparation of these particulars, the correctness is not guaranteed and they are intended as a guide only and do not constitute a part of any contract. The team have made a fantastic job of the boat, many thanks to both Jordan & Stuart for all their hard work. This is a 57ft semi trad stern with reverse layout, two sets of side doors, pigeon boxes and portholes. As part of the new website we’ve also redesigned our logo which will be used on future advertising, we hope you approve of the new look!


I’m actually writing this on the 23rd Feb having uploaded these photos nearly two weeks ago, so there has been a lot more progress since.
As well as the engine and batteries Stuart has also installed all the electrics on board the boat and all the plumbing and heating circuits. Like most battery installations the starter battery is on a separate bank so there is always power to start the engine.
Should any water get through top joins the waterproof aqua panel prevents the wood becoming wet and consequently marked.
But typically with boats, nothing ever quite runs to plan… To cut a long story shortly after filling the diesel tank up ready for the first hire, and with only 5 minutes left before our first customers arrived, I discovered a leak from the fuel tank which had left a 4″ deep layer of diesel in the bilge!
Leaving the marina here you can see the boats already picked up a few scratches, a sign of a well used boat! The galley has been cleverly fitted with a range of beautiful units and modern appliances, utilising all available space, making this narrowboat an absoulte luxury to cruise and live aboard.
We’re already well underway with the fitout on a brand new bespoke narrowboat, updates to follow!
We’ve been very busy with both the boat build as well as carrying out a lot of maintenance and repair work on boats moored within the marina.
Just like Jordan he is a meticulus worker and has an eye for detail, even on wiring and plumbing hidden behind boarding! Therefore they can be left on for a number of hours without the worry of major battery drain – great for children sleeping in this rear cabin. Unfortunately both Colecraft and our Surveyor (+ myself) had missed an unused diesel outlet pipe hidden behind the Webasto which hadn’t been fitted with an Isolation valve. The internal wall lining has recently be repainted in a pale blue matt finish with varnished wood trim.
We’ve also been busy planning ahead for the bespoke boat fitout that will take place immediately after Aqua Vie is complete, the Colecraft shell for that build will be with us within the next few weeks. Luckily the leak was temporarily plugged until Colecraft could come out first thing on Sunday morning to permanently rectify the problem.
These can be pulled across and attached the steel cabin sides to enclose the cruiser sterns – ideal for kids and pets.
We’ve also had vinyl cushions made for the bow locker lids making for comfier seating. Along the starboard side are mounted several hot water radiators heated by a Alde gas fired heater. But the boat finally left the marina on Sunday morning and a good holiday on the Cauldon Canal has had by all. The only other issue was discovering a faulty light on the Tecma toilet control panel which was rectified when the boat returned on the following Saturday.
