Whether you’re a seasoned boater or new to canal boating, “JONES FAMILY CRUISING” would like to offer you the opportunity to get afloat at an affordable price and experience the joy of the UK Canal Network on our privately owned boat “Maddison”

Maddison is based in the market town of Penkridge at Otherton Boat Haven with access to some wonderful canal routes.
She is an 8 berth 62ft cruiser stern narrowboat. She has a light and airy feel with two single beds at the rear with a handy private toilet compartment. Going forward there's a fixed double bed with pull out 'jumbo' storage drawers beneath. Beyond this is the bathroom with a second toilet, full size thermostatically controlled shower (I have to say it's very good) plus a vanity unit with giant mirror and plenty of storage areas for towels and you personal items.
