Narrowboat Manchester City Centre

Located in: Manchester »
The Captain is a home from home, a interesting city centre boat that will cater for your every whim. Beautifully designed by Will Trickett this is not your average canal boat! The boat is bespoke and hand crafted with reclaimed woods from Somerset churches and schools, with amazing carpentry and a genuine warmth.

If you can't access your dates do get in touch and I will see what I can do as I leave a days rest for the boat (and me) either side of bookings that I can always shift.

The space

The boat is officially a wide beam narrow boat - meaning it is the same shape as a canal boat but double the width, giving you space to stretch and spaces to play hide and seek.

The boat is pretty unique and the perfect place for families, couples and friends to stay over whilst also being pretty perfect for business too.

It is a cosy sanctuary minutes away from the city bustle in the heart of Cottonopolis. It is a unique boatique experience and one which have you going home and packing it all in to come and join the river rats.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the boat as their own and all fresh laundry will be provided.

The boat is moored 10 minutes from the Northern Quarter and has marina facilities such as extra showers, toilets, barbecue area and picnic tables.

Interaction with guests

On arrival and departure only. Unless in emergency or if complaints are made by neighbours.

Other things to note

The boat is moored on a beautiful spot looking out over New Islington Marina. There are few things to note...

The boat is twice the width of your average canal boat so you have extra space to stretch. On entering the Captain you clamber down Edward VIII's very own steps salvaged from his yacht the Nihall. You can then relax on the sofa or have long lunches around the table.

Sorry the boat has no land line and therefore no internet (sadface)

The toilet is simple and electronic and swirls all things away into a massive tank. However it will not digest any wipes or sanitary products so please never put them down. You will be charged for a call out plumber.

By all means have an ace time but the marina is a quiet neighbourhood and noise and unsocial behaviour will not be tolerated. The hosts moor on the marina and will be alerted if anybody is upset or put out by guests behaviour and the deposit will be taken as compensation to those put out.

We LOVE our neighbours, the marina is full of the loveliest, kindest and best people in the world and we do not want to anger any of them. They range from new-borns to re-borns so please do respect. Just be considerate - that is all we ask.

1. the loo is not a normal loo so NEVER EVER throw wipes, sanitary or any thing but... down it. You will be charged for a call out plumber to fix it if this happens.

2. The boat functions just like a house, with the odd tick - please look at the Captains manual we have made for you and this should answer all your questions - if not then give me a call and I can tell you all.

3. The boat is static and not licensed to be moved.
