In the last Competition vlog, I mentioned that a lot of the viewers to this channel are overseas and I often get asked if foreigners can own narrowboats. The answer is “yes” and in this video I talk to an American couple who’ve done just that and are about to set off on their canal travels.
What do narrowboat brokers do and should you use one, either to sell or buy a boat? These questions and more are answered in a sit-down interview with James Millsop of brokerage firm Rugby Boats, based at Stowe Hill Wharf in Weedon, Northamptonshire.
What’s it like to go out shopping for a second-hand narrowboat at a brokerage? In this video I accompany a viewer, Paul Bush, on his journey to ABNB at Crick (where I bought my boat) and chat with him as he looks over two possible canal boats.
This is part 2 of my short series about the costs of buying, owning and living on a narrowboat. In this video I discuss what it costs to buy a narrowboat, from cheap second-hand ones to expensive second-hand ones, to new builds, sailaways, share boats and even GRP cruisers!
After months of people saying “but what does it cost?”, here’s the first in a series of 3 or 4 videos about how much money it takes to buy, own and live aboard a narrowboat. In this video, it’s all about the buying process.
