Our Boat

On a boat I learn how little a person needs not how much.


The week we had on Rosemary was the best holiday we've had for a long time....Rosemary is very well equipped and we were greeted with a complimentary bunch of flowers and a lovely bottle of wine...


The Fletcher family,


...Rosemary is very easy to handle and never missed a beat the week we had her. Highly recommended by us.

However your group is made up, Rosemary can be adapted in a number of ways to suit you. Although capable of sleeping 6 people, you can choose whether to have two double beds, a double and 4 singles or two doubles and two singles.


Rosemary is a 55 foot, Cruiser style narrowboat which sleeps up to 6 people in a 4 + 2 arrangement - this just means there are 4 permanent berths and 2 to be converted from seating if needed.


Rosemary is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing cruise on the canals of England and Wales.


A Small table can be fitted if required for games or snacks etc.

Or, have no table fitted to give yourselves more room.


Rosemary is a cruiser style narrowboat with a large area outside at the front and rear for you to either socialise or just watch the world go by.


From the front entrance you step down into the saloon which is a comfortable dining and lounge area with plenty of seating. The choice is yours, whether to have the large table set up, or use the smaller table to give your party more room when not dining. This area can also be arranged into a double bed when sleeping 6 onboard. A TV/DVD player is fitted in the saloon for your entertainment, the system also has the facility to play music from an MP3 player or USB stick.


The galley has plenty of storage space, and is fitted with a refrigerator and four ring cooker. There is also a filtered drinking water system, as well as hot and cold running water. Water is heated by the engine or the central heating unit, so you will always have enough hot water for a shower.


The centre of the boat is taken up by a shower and toilet. Wash basins are fitted in each of the two bedrooms.


The bedrooms have ample wardrobe and under bed storage, the rear beds are able to be configured as a double bed if you choose. Each single bed is fitted with a reading lamp.


Rosemary is fully centrally heated with radiators in each compartment.


6 crew on board? Simply convert the saloon seating into a double bed.
