Our Busiest Days at Beacon Park Boats

Changeover days are the busiest of all at the boathouse. Wander along the canal near Beacon Park Boats early on a Friday, Saturday and or Monday morning, and you will see lines of green and gold boats moored up, ready to come in.  A few hours later, you will see the same boats spotlessly clean leaving the yard at the start of new adventures on the beautiful Mon and Brec Canal.  It’s all hands-on and below desks for the whole day!

We don't want the 'Ikea of narrowboats', so we build our own!

We design and build every boat we operate at Beacon Park Boats because we believe our customers enjoy holidaying aboard bespoke hand-crafted vessels which are something out of the ordinary.
