Picture Gallery:

Alacrity is a semi trad style narrowboat, built by Ken Bonkowski, his boat are recognisable by the shapely launch style stern. The boat benefits from having much steel work done very recently following a survey report, at the same time a new stainless steel water tank and toilet tank was installed. Entering the boat from the stern you go into the bedroom which has a fixed double bed with storage under. Off the passage way is the bathroom which has a shower, pumpout toilet and sink in a vanity unit, a cupboard houses the water heater. The galley is well equipped with white goods, all recently bought. The saloon has a sofa bed , TV cupboard and multi fuel stove. There is excellent headroom throughout. This is a boat which has had a lot of work done, which should give years of trouble free ownership.
