With Narrowboats three of the main questions we will ask are has the boat been blacked, surveyed and have a BSS. On the inland waterways boats need to be kept to a certain standard and if a narrowboat hasn’t been blacked in a while it could mean the hull needs work. This can be costly on narrowboats and barges. A boat must also have a Boat Safety Certificate that is in date. If your boat hasn’t got one the new owner will have the expense of getting one. This will affect the price we can offer.

Also if the boat has a mooring license or a continuous cruising license matters. This will affect the boats value as if someone can take on a mooring for a narrowboat it may be more attractive than having to immediately move the boat on.
