From November 2018 to March 2019 our boat ‘Gloria’ will be available for a continuous, static hire. The hire cost is £895 per month. The boat will be based at the Bridgewater marina (our base and 9 miles by road from Manchester city centre). Most of the year we run holiday hire but for winter ‘Gloria’ is only run as a static hire whilst our other boat ‘Queenie’ carries on as a holiday hire boat 12 months a year.
Have you ever dreamed of living on the water for a while? Would you like to try living on a boat before you decide whether to buy your own? Or do you just fancy spending 4 months living on a houseboat. The boat is set up for comfortable winter living, it has central heating and a solid fuel stove. There is outdoor space just near the boat and a car park at the marina.
Here’s what Charlotte wrote of her time aboard ‘Gloria’ from Nov 2017 to March 2018:
“I lived aboard ‘Gloria’ over the winter months of last year (until March this year). I was ready to live on my own for the first time and I’ve always wondered what life would be like on a narrowboat. I’ve made so many good memories and this has been the best year of my life so far! It’s amazing how just a few months can change your life. Hester has transformed ‘Gloria’ into a beautiful, contemporary home. I didn’t need to add anything to make it feel homely. Everyone at the marina was so welcoming. I felt safe and I got to know the local area quite quickly. I was never too cold and it was so peaceful at night. I loved waking up to see swans outside my bedroom window. I worked in the city centre, so I had the best of both worlds. If you’re looking for something different, or just time to reflect, ‘Gloria’ is the place to be!
This static hire is available for the full duration for 1 person only. This will be the fourth year running that we have successfully offered static hire throughout the winter months.
The price for this static hire is £895 pcm. If you are interested in the November 2018 to March 2019 static hire please get in touch.
