She is a custom designed and built 60' x 13'6" beautiful widebeam canal barge sleeping upto 6 people with two luxury bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lovely lounge, dining galley area with outside spaces front and back.

The business is now well established with an impressive online presence with bookings received worldwide through Booking.com, AirBnB, TripAdvisor, Expedia, Facebook and own website at www.boatstay.co.uk. Booking.com recognised our efforts with a 2018 Guest Review Award scoring us 9.5 out of 10 and Tripadvisor awarded Castlerose a Certificate of Excellence 2018.

Castlerose is moored in a fantastic spot in central Manchester on The Bridgewater Canal.

Features of the boat can be viewed here: https://www.boatstay.co.uk/the-boat/

"Enjoy social time using the bow & stern deck areas allowing you to enjoy the fresh air, fantastic views and al-fresco dining whilst enjoying your stay or cruise."

"The homely Lounge - Dining - Galley room on the boat can be used in a multitude of ways: Relax around the log fire, enjoy dinner for up to six around the dining table or, at the end of the day, turn the room into a sumptuous double bedroom."

"You can look forward to your stay enjoying the highest levels of comfort & relaxation. With a bedroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge the boat sleeps four in comfort. The bedroom can be made up as either a super-king size double or two single beds and shares a stylish house bathroom with guests sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge."

Expansion Potential:

Expansion to the business is possible in lots of ways!

Competition / Market:

Reasons for selling:

The business is being put up for sale as the owner has a full time job and is unable to meet the business’s potential for servicing mid week business and the higher value cruising holiday market.
