Hundreds of visitors for Beacon Park Boats Open Day

Saturday, the 28th of January, marked our 2023 open day, and what an amazing day it was. From 10 am, the car park began to fill, and we saw people from as far away as Reading turning up to look around our luxury boats and workshop. With hot drinks, biscuits and a slice of cake to greet them, we showed 400+ people around six of our boats, our new in-build boat Drake, and a look at our new ex-steam-powered day boat. Some had a ride on our all-electric boat Robin, as well as an eight-seater electric day boat. 

This is what our visitors said: “Having come here for the first time today, I’m in awe of this place. The workshop is fantastic, the people’s knowledge here is brilliant… we are absolutely delighted”. Another visitor said: “Everything was luxurious, a Nespresso machine on a canal boat, a Le Creuset Kettle, just loved it, loved it all!”. Alasdair Kirkpatrick, Owner and Designer of Beacon Park Boats, said: “It’s been a very busy day; I couldn’t believe it; the turnout was incredible”.

10% off a romantic Valentine’s getaway from February to 17th inclusive

Owl was one of the many boats available for viewing on the open day, and another visitor said “You could feel the cosiness as you walked down the steps… I could cuddle up in that bed, I could sit in that Jacuzzi… so that to me had a real feel of luxury, cosiness, everything you would want from a trip”.

We have a special Valentine's offer of 10% off a houseboat holiday on Owl, for a short break beginning on the 13th of February, till the 17th. Relax in the 5ft four-poster bed or take a step out onto the front deck and sink into its built-in hot tub.
