General comments about the boat

Celtic Kiwi is a smart 58ft semi-trad narrow boat launched in 2003. She is well laid-out for two to six people with plenty of living space. She is currently based at Wigram's Turn Marina, at the junction of the Oxford and Grand Union canals.

The bedroom has a double bed extendable to 5ft width; the bathroom a flush toilet, hand basin and shower; the kitchen a double oven, microwave, 4-ring gas hob and electric fridge.  The dining area has a raised dinette which converts to a double bed, with storage below the seats. Forward of this is a sitting area with more cupboards, two armchairs (which convert to single beds) and a multi-fuel stove.  For entertainment we have a Freeview enabled TV and a DVD/CD player as well as a DAB radio.

CK has a Eberspacher powered (fitted 2014) central heating system with hot water radiators throughout the cabins. LED lighting has recently been installed throughout.

A full set of equipment for canal and non-tidal river cruising is on board, including a heavy duty anchor, chains and warps for rivers and tidal sections. We carry a full selection of mechanical spares on board, a full set of Nicholson canal guides, and cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery are provided. Quilts, pillows etc. to make up all six berths are included, but linen (sheets, pillowcases, towels etc.) must be provided by the using owner.

Layout schematic is from a very similar boat


Celtic Kiwi was originally commissioned by the Boatshare Company, and the owners converted to private management in September 2005. We donít employ a boat management company.

We elect a 3 person owner-management team of Boat Manager, Treasurer and Assistant Boat Manager at each AGM (usually held in September), where we also set the plans for the year ahead. If other decisions are required during the year, the Boat Manager will circulate the owners who discuss and decide the matter by email.

CK has gold member RCR cover and has current BSS certification

CK has a gold licence covering BW and EA waters, which owners find useful for visiting the Thames and the Nene - both only a few days' cruise from Wigrams. Wigrams is also very well placed for canal cruising.

All owners follow regular guidelines (as with all narrow boats) and there is an agreed changeover procedure to ensure that we all find the boat in good condition. Owners can hand over at Wigrams or (by arrangement) anywhere in the country.

We welcome new owners, who should have some experience in operating a canal boat. Prospective owners without narrow boat experience must be willing to take a suitable short narrow boat course from an approved trainer.

Celtic Kiwi has been completely repainted in April 2018 and is beautiful and in excellent condition.

The operating equipment is all working reliably and is well maintained, and we hold a sinking fund to avoid unpleasant surprises.

I held six weeks in CK, and have just sold four of them to other owners in our syndicate.
