New boats for 2019 for the Floating Holidays fleet

Coming soon to the Floating Holidays fleet will be 3 new additions for 2019. We are due to shortly take delivery of two 45ft boats and a 55ft boat. The boats are currently very popular due to their comfortable high quality finish, king size beds and large spacious bathrooms within their current hire boat fleet home, and we are delighted to be taking them into the Floating Holidays family of boats.

The boats are:

Casanova; a 45ft 2 berth cruiser stern narrowboat

Lady Sophia; a 45 ft 4 berth cruiser stern narrowboat

Columbina; a 55ft 6 berth cruiser stern narrowboat

We will take plenty of pictures and post several updates during our shake down cruise in December and in the meantime we will be preparing for their arrival. We have the boats advertised currently with some of their present pictures and will update those images again once we have them back at base.  Some taster pictures below:

“Just returned from 9 days/8 nights. Lovely 4 berth boat. Bedding and towels included. Dog friendly including dog bed, towel and treats (even poo bags included!). Beautiful canal from Poynton through the villages and past Macclesfield in a day then onto Bosley locks in the other direction Marple locks and/or up to historic Bugsworth Basin. Very well stocked boat. Just bring yourself and some food. Highly recommended.
