Over 250 listings in our new section for Narrowboats, Widebeams and canal craft

narrowboat or narrow boat is a boat built to fit the narrow canals of the United Kingdom.

 

The term  “narrow boat” refers to the original working boats built in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries for carrying goods on the narrow canals where locks, tunnels and bridges, would have a minimum width of 7 feet (2.13 m). In fact  some of the  locks on the Shropshire Union are even smaller. The term is extended to modern “narrowboats” used for recreation and more and more as houseboats. On the wider canals ad rivers “widebeams” up to about 15 feet wide are popular.

Our latest section “Canal and Narrowboats” lists over 270 of these fascinating vessels currently for sale.

Welcome to the new look website.

After 12 great years, The Houseboat Centre website has been completely redesigned.
The reason is that internet buying has changed completely in the last two years.
The leading force for change, growing in sales-produced faster than any other, is – – Facebook.
So we are integrating with facebook establishing links and feeds which means that adverts tend to be spread virally between people with an interest in Houseboats. It does mean we deleted our entire website, (“omlettes & broken eggs”)some elements will be restored later, including the lists of Houseboats for sale.If you are a broker and want your list of boats to be sold much faster in a new channel, or a private owner selling your houseboat yourself, here is your chance.
