Nineteen boats coming to Braunston

There will be nineteen shared ownership narrowboats to view at the Braunston Boat Share Show on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th April.

The boats attending include Adagio, Dawn Chorus, Dawn Mist, Dragonfly, Enterprise, Heartsease, Lilaea (new this year), Little Dawn, Oakmere, Serenade, Shadow, Shearwater, Sojourn, Sundowner, Swallow, Viceroy and Winding Down.
Launched in 1993, Sojourn is the 'old lady' of this
year's Braunston Boat Share Show.  She's a 58ft
semi-trad boat with an unusual 7 berths.
The bunks in the rear cabin can sleep
up to 3 people, but can also be arranged to
provide two single bunks or a double bed.
Our first share was in Sojourn,
so we know her well.

All of the boats on view are managed by one of the professional management companies who sponsor the event - BC Boat Management, Carefree Cruising and Ownashare Cruising.

Shares are on offer in all these boats, ranging in asking price from £950 up to £10,950.  The boats vary in length from 40ft up to 62ft and in age from brand new up to 22 years old, so they represent a good cross section of the 96 shares currently on offer from these companies and listed here.

The show - at Braunston Marina (NN11 7JH)  - starts at 10am each day, with free parking and admission.


  1. Any news of the l names of the 18th and 19th boats yet?

  2. I'm still waiting for Ownashare to let me know.

    Sojourn will not be there now as all the shares in her are now sold. Whether my post and tweet affected that, I don't know - but I would like to think so!
