General Comments by vendor
Brock is a well-maintained Trad style narrow boat. With Sagar’s curvaceous steelwork, quality fit-out and furnishings she is much admired.
We are seeking experienced boaters, who share our aim to keep Brock to a high standard, to join our small friendly group which is keen on narrow boating and exploring as much of the canals as we can. With only 3 / 4 members we can offer reasonably flexible boating and link cruising if desired.
Based on the Macclesfield Canal at over 500ft we have superb views from our marina over the Cheshire Plain to the Welsh and Pennine Hills with a good selection of ring routes and access to the Peak Forest Canal even in winter.
We have regular winter servicing and dry-docking for comastic blacking etc doing such jobs as we can ourselves and using professionals as needs. Brock has a full 4 year boat certificate until April 2017.
We look forward to meeting you and showing you our boat.
