70 ft Bluewater Boats Dutch Barge

When I was about 7 years old my parents built narrowboats and my job was to break up the concrete and re arrange in the narrowboats bilge for ballast. I remember working in any temperature and used to love getting as much concrete to fit in the gap as possible. Growing up with Narrowboats I’ve always had a love of the Inland Waterways, the people and the lifestyle, its a different world.

The boat shows are a fantastic eclectic array of jazz and folk bands, real ale (not for the faint hearted) and a whole range of Narrowboats, canal boats, motor cruisers and barges, all ages, antique and new.

At Boatshed.com we have a huge range of Narrowboats, Barges and Inland Waterways craft for sale in our Boatshed office locations world-wide. If you haven’t already registered on Boatshed.com, (Register here) then you can compare all the interior and exterior photos of each boat. Boatshed take now up to 80 photos per boat for sale so its very easy to compare the condition of gear and equipment and you can really see what the interior looks like. If you’re already registered login with your email address to view all the boats images in a new slide show format, click play and it will go through all the photos.
The great thing about Boatshed is that each office (there’s about 50 across the world at present) will go onboard and take their own photos and will list the full inventory included in the sale of each boat. It’s worth registering on Boatshed to just compare boat interiors and how you could update yours.
