Completed in 2008 The Pride of York is a 60ft Semi-Traditional Narrowboat and purchased under a private shared ownership scheme of six owners.  Each owner has two weeks luxury cruising per season (total eight weeks). 



A truly exceptional boat, professionally fitted out by cabinet maker David Clarke, who has used his 25 years experience of making and fitting furniture to create a new style of boat fitting.  The quality and unique details of the interior fixtures and fittings makes this boat “a cut above” the rest.


The light and airy interior is fitted out in White Ash plywood with spectacular blue detail lines and solid White Ash mouldings (no mdf on this boat).  White Ash tongue and groove ceiling.  Two Houdini hatches provide additional light and ventilation.


This boat will accommodate six people in comfort.  Equipment has been carefully chosen for luxury cruising and living.  Beta Marine 43 engine, Vetus bow thruster, Electrolux travel pack and 240v landline.
