Canal Boat Holidays In the heart of Cheshire – Cruising UNAFFECTED by the Middlewich breach.


Entry into service 14th July 2018

Be the first to sail our brand new boat.

Serenissima is the second of our new line of boats that offer the most spacious, comfortable and beautiful boats in the Industry.  The boat is 50 feet long and as just a 2 berth boat, it means that the bedroom is larger, the bed longer, the Central Heating is switched from “sitting up in bed”,  it has a “Walk Through” bathroom, and the new “Wave Art” Galley providing unrestricted passage and ease of use. We have tried to make this the very best boat available and it comes with enhanced levels of service and provision,……..   unless of course you don’t like Prosecco.!! .

The open plan saloon has leather reclining arm chairs and foot stools, a 23″ flat screen digital colour TV with DVD player, Freeview and a USB plug in for playing your own videos and music. There is also a separate USB plug in charger socket for laptops and phones.

In the bedroom, the king sized bed is actually 6’6″ wide as well as 6’6″ long with a 9″ thick “Coolmax” memory foam mattress. Memory foam pillows can also be provided upon request and fluffy “Venetian” bath and hand towels are provided. It has Egyptian cotton bed linen and as many pillows as you wish.




The fully-equipped galley has a 4 ring cooker, oven & grill. It has a huge refrigerators for a boat with a 15 litre freezer box on top of a normal sized fridge so you will always have ice for your gin and tonic. Of course, cutlery, crockery, saucepans and cooking utensils are all provided, as are T-towels, washing-up liquid and cleaning materials along with useful kitchen items such as waste bin, replacement liners, rubber gloves, and the

welcome pack comprising tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bacon, eggs, bread, beer and wine……to your selection. There is a presentation of sachet sauces, preserves and butter to help you settle in as well as a 5 litre bottle of drinking water to ensure you have pure water for drinking. The inventory even includes a cafetiere, a teapot, and for the budding chef, mixing bowls.

The “in bed” TV is a 17″ screen and you have a hot water bottle and Teddy to keep you company on dark nights.. There is a switch panel next to the bed which switches on the central heating and all of the various lights so you no longer need to brave the cold to make your early morning cuppa.

As you can see from the photo’s the “walk through” bathroom has the same beautifully curved surface as the galley, as well as a full sized flushing toilet and full sized quadrant shower unit.

Under the surface is also important on this boat as it has an 800 liter water tank and dual water pumps to give you a full speed shower, just like at home. It also has a hospital silencer on the exhaust to make your cruising as quiet as possible.


The photographs are of Lady Isabella as Serenissima is still in fit out with an expected completion date, ready for proving trials of 1st June. It will effectively be identical.
