Owning a narrowboat is a great investment as it allows you to access the beautiful canals in the UK and gives you the freedom to travel the country. According to the ‘Residential Boat Owners Association, there are about 20,000 people in the UK who live on narrowboats, and a large number of people who own a narrowboat for leisurely purposes.
One of the most common questions asked when considering buying a narrowboat is ‘are they really worth the money?’ This all depends on the type of boat you buy, the condition of the boat and what you intend to use it for.
For most people, a narrowboat is a primary home but for some people, it’s also used as a second home, where they can go away for the weekend or for the holiday period. You can find out more about this brilliant type of boat here, in our Narrowboats guide.
