Advantage boatshare        Shares For Sale


This whole web site has moved to

If you are just looking in general please go to the new site
This site now just holds some OLD templates.




Most shared ownership narrow boats fall in to a single bracket, they are around 60' long, they have six berths, they have semi-trad hulls and have a mid galley.

There are SOME variations on this theme and this is where the search facility comes in.

SOME have a rear galley, SOME are shorter, around 45' and SOME have (say) four berths. Also SOME have "school holiday option" shares for sale. Some are based in France, some on the Norfolk Broads etc.

Suppose you want a boat that is around 58-60 feet long, type in 61f in the box below and all shares for sale on boats AROUND 58-60 feet long (or greater) will come up.

If you click on refine at the foot of the search results you can add a second term to narrow your search down even more. By example, suppose you want a share in a "standard" 58-60' boat but one in a managed scheme, enter- (61f) AND (mngd)-and it will only show pages where BOTH these terms apply.

If you want a share in a smaller boat, or a wide beam craft, type in 45f and shares in these boats will come up.

This should only show up on boats where there are shares actually for sale at the time of your search.

A full glossary of search terms is below - when doing your search you might find it easier to have this page open as well. So click here and have it open again for you to refer back to as you search.

Shares in boats based on the River Thames


Share in boats that are deemed
"Pet Free"



See note below

Smoking: Some boats are deemed no smoking, where users may NOT smoke inside the boat, others not.

This is actually somewhat misleading as on a number of craft there is a "gentlemen's agreement" that people do not smoke on there but it is not actually laid down in the agreement.

If you have a need either way regarding this issue best bet is to ask the vendor where it says it is allowed to see if it actually happens in practice. In most cases although it says it is allowed nobody actually does.

If there is a search term you think I should add please do let me know, but please not canal mooring location in the UK (as boats move).

Of course you can pop anything you like in the box that you think might help!!

So, from the list on the right above just pop your preferred criteria in the box below BUT please note that within the searches found this page may also come up!!
