Scouting Venture is available for hire!

By Narrowboat Team, May 24 2017 07:04PM

The Narrowboat Committee is excited to announce that the refit of Scouting Venture is complete, apart from a couple of snagging items. This means she is available to hire for day/evening bookings from 1st June, and for overnight trips from 16th June.


As well as various electrical and mechanical improvements, the refit has included a new cassette toilet as part of a refurbished washroom, a fabulous new kitchen and the inclusion of sleeping accommodation, while retaining the small table day format, in caravan style bunk arrangements. If you haven’t had the chance to have a look, do make time - she is quite a contrast to when we got her and to Jubilee Venture…..who will be getting some TLC as the next project!


Sincere thanks go to all who have contributed time, energy, money and spouses to the project..…..it’s been an amazing journey and we are thrilled with the outcome……we hope you will be too! We will be sharing the story of both narrowboats at the District AGM in July, so do come along and hear all about it.


Bookings can be made through the website in the usual way, and we are running familiarisation trips for Masters - these can be booked through the website too. SV has heating so trips are not limited to the warmer months.
