Narrowboats are an ideal option for families and couples looking to invest in an alternative holiday option they can enjoy year after year — and by buying yours on finance , you can bypass the upfront payment and get out on the water as soon as possible. Narrowboat finance is something most lenders are unable to provide. In these cases, a foot narrowboat may be the best option — offering your family the space to live comfortably, versus the 30 or foot alternatives traditionally associated with weekend cruising and canal boat holidays.
Our team of friendly and knowledgeable marine mortgage experts understand the unique challenges associated with narrowboat finance and are committed to getting every customer out on the water as soon as possible. Read more: buying a narrowboat.

These relationships enable us to arrange loans for customers with great and not-so-great credit scores — meaning every applicant stands a chance of getting approved regardless of their financial past.
The application process is designed to be as swift and straightforward as possible, giving you more time to track down the narrowboat of your dreams — rather than spending hours becoming frustrated with complex online forms and paperwork. Regardless of your circumstances, our team will do what they can to find a selection of suitable finance options and get you approved in as little time as possible. If you have any questions, give us a call on to talk through your marine finance options.

Originally named the Canal royal en Languedoc Royal Canal in Languedoc and renamed by French revolutionaries to Canal du Midi in , the canal was at the time considered one of the greatest construction works of the 17th century. Strictly speaking, “Canal du Midi” refers to the portion initially constructed from Toulouse to the Mediterranean — the Deux-Mers canal project aimed to link together several sections of navigable waterways to join the Mediterranean and the Atlantic: first the Canal du Midi, then the Garonne which was more or less navigable between Toulouse and Bordeaux , then the Garonne Lateral Canal built later, and finally the Gironde estuary after Bordeaux.
Jean-Baptiste Colbert authorized the start of work by royal edict in October, , with the aim of developing the wheat trade, under the supervision of Pierre-Paul Riquet , and construction lasted from to , during the reign of Louis XIV.

Narrowboat Hire and Holidays
Up to 3 days after your booking was made, if you find cheaper elsewhere for the same departure date and for the same boat model, we will refund you the difference. The hire price covers the cost to charter a boat, regardless of the number of people on board and the route chosen. This price relies on 4 factors: chosen boat type, start date of your cruise, country of navigation, length of your holiday. The season usually runs from March to October and our price list is divided into 5 pricing periods from low season at the start and end of the season to very high season during the summer.
In addition, we regularly advertise special offers on our website and in our newsletters that are valid for a limited period. Stay tuned! However, to benefit from the largest selection of boats and departure dates, we strongly recommend to book well ahead. Eventually hiring a boat and renting a car are very similar when it comes to the extra costs you pay on top : you have to pay for your diesel and you must leave a deposit in case of damages. The deposit will be retained in part or in full at the end of your cruise if the boat is damaged.
