There are now 20 boats booked in to attend the Boat Share Show at Braunston on 12th and 13th April. We think this is more than even in the heyday of Ownerships and the basin at Braunston Marina will be packed!
Boats attending are all managed by one of the four management companies sponsoring the event - ABC Boatshare, BCBM, Carefree Cruising and Ownashare and all have shares for sale.
Visitors to the show can expect that most of the boats on view will have one or more of their owners on board - although in some cases it may be owners of a share in another boat. All of these owners will be able to talk about shared ownership and why they have enjoyed owning a share in a managed narrowboat.
If you're not able to get to Braunston for the weekend of 12th and 13th April, then why not visit one of the open days arranged by these companies? Three of the companies - BCBM, Carefree Cruising and Ownashare have events this coming weekend - Saturday 8th March, with the BCBM one at Overwater Marina continuing on Sunday 9th.
There's a list of forthcoming events here, and each of the companies can arrange a viewing if you identify boats you are particularly interested in. The best place to start your search for the perfect share is with the combined list of all the shares currently on offer from these companies. This is the most comprehensive listing of narrowboat shares to be found in the UK.
