Find your escape on the waterways

Things are really hotting up for the inland sector at SBS BoatLife Show 2023 with an exciting display anticipated for the second year. To date we have a fantastic range of narrowboats being exhibited on the NEC floor, including three 60ft+ beauties from Collingwood, and potentially more to join the line-up! These include:

1 x Viking Widebeam
3 x Collingwood – 2 x 60ft (inc 1 x Widebeam), 1 x 70ft Widebeam
1 x Swan Boat Builders
1 x Lakeland Leisure

These boats are here for ticket holder to explore, from barges to narrowboats to holiday companies, the area will give you a taste of the inland waterways. If you haven’t taken a trip on the canals, rivers or broads then you are missing a treat!
