Why Narrowboat Sales Have Skyrocketed in 2022

It’s probably no surprise to find out that the sales of narrowboats and widebeam boats is set to skyrocket into summer 2022. Given new international travel restrictions and the fact that more people are now being encouraged to take a ‘staycation’ or a holiday home, many people are expected to turn to the countries stunning canal and riverways, not just for a holiday, but for something with more permanent standing - a narrowboat of their very own.

A narrowboat, or a widebeam boat should be considered as a second home from home, or, perhaps even as a new primary home for some buyers. The purchase of a narrowboat is indeed a large investment, however it’s an investment for your future, with happier and more peaceful times ahead. By owning a narrowboat you get access to endless days spent on the UK’s stunning canal and river network, allowing you to literally travel the length of the country from the comfort of your own home.
