We took Rakiraki into our fleet in May 2018 and she is an excellent narrowboat with room for large parties of up to 10 guests. 

She has all the mod-cons you could wish for including two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen, three cabins and the saloon converts to make an additional fourth sleeping area.

Rakiraki has cruised the canals of the north west extensively and has proved herself to be a capable and comfortable visit, she receives excellent reviews from guests and would make a great boat for your next holiday.

If you are interested in enquiring about hiring Raki Raki you can do so through our contact page or through our booking page, she is a 69ft 10 berth narrowboat.

A living museum

The canals are truly a wonder of engineering! Built some nearly 300 years ago without a JCB or hard hat in sight. A true testament to the men and women involed in its construction. See these wonders in person during your stay with us.
