We're on Twitter now

Boatshare4u.co.uk now has a Twitter account so, if you're also on Twitter, please do follow us:


Most of our Tweets are about the Boat Share Show and include the hash tag  #BoatShareShow.  If you use that in your Tweets, it will help to spread the word about this first ever joint shared ownership show.

As a result of using Twitter, we've come across another forum with a shared ownership section - Just Canals.  There's now a link to it on the main menu.

Braunston Boat Share Show already half full

With a maximum capacity of 20 boats for the Boat Share Show at Braunston in April, the bookings from syndicates mean that the basin is already half full.
The four shared ownership management companies sponsoring the event - ABC Boat Share, BCBM, Carefree Cruising and Ownashare - each have an initial 'quota' of 5 boats.  One of the companies has already filled its quota and has a waiting list.

If there is a share for sale in your boat - and it's managed by one of these companies - then the Boat Share Show is the best place to find a new owner for that share.  Each company is taking bookings from the syndicates it manages, so please contact the company directly if you want to be at the first ever combined shared ownership narrowboat event.

And if you're looking for a share, make a note of the date in your diary - Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th April 2014.  There is no better way to find the right share than coming to Braunston to see the full range of what's available.  And, of course, you can use the share search facility on this site to create your viewing shortlist.

Most of the boats at Braunston will have owners on board to show you round and answer your questions.  They'll be there because they know shared ownership is a great idea - and the best possible value for your money in boating holidays. 

There will be no room for self-managed boats at the show, but owners currently in self-managed syndicates will have the opportunity to talk to each of the management companies about what they can offer - or even about a complete replacement boat for the syndicate.
