Please Click Here For Printable Details (Poppy)

‘Poppy’ is a 70′ Semi-Trad narrowboat built by Black Prince Holidays Ltd in 2001. It began its life as a 10 berth hire boat on the canals before being sold as a private vessel. The boat was refitted by a previous owner making it more suitable as a long term liveaboard. With the benefit of professionally installed solar panels, ‘Poppy’ is also well equipped for ‘off- grid’ or continuous cruising. The hull had an epoxy treatment in Autumn 2023. Viewings are available 7 days a week by prior appointment please as this vessel is lying away.
