Our cruiser stern decks are popular with young families and the less mobile as they offer easier stern access. They have a seating bench around the stern safety rail for up to 4 people to enjoy during non-cruising times.
Foxcub ~ at 45 feet (13.7 metres) is the smallest of our cruiser style boats offering spacious accommodation for a couple or a small family.
The fixed double berth cabin is located to the front of the boat with the galley and saloon at the rear. With the seating area in the saloon making up into either a second double berth bed or two single berth beds she can accommodate up to 4 people. With this reverse layout, the helmsman is not isolated from their crew during navigation.

Foxcub 15th - 22nd April 2017 This was our first ever narrow boat holiday. Customer service was second to none, from booking to leaving our little Foxcub. We had a little mishap and lost all steering Dave came out to rescue us much quicker than the AA. We had the best time, the boat had everything we could need and the whole week was fantastic can't wait to have our next relaxing break. The scenery and great people we met at the locks and just passing on the Canal it was better than we imagined. Thank you to everyone at Foxhangers. See you soon Mrs J Stoddart
Foxcub 27 August- 3 September 2016 Had an enjoyable week. Very pleased with boat and contents, layout and cleanliness. Hope to return next year Mrs Tapping
Foxcub 28 August-5 September I just wanted to say what a great time we had and how well equipped and clean the boat was. The introduction at the start was very good, considering this was our first time and we felt that we did pretty well considering. We went all the way to Bath and back in about 4 days so we decided to then tackle the Caen locks and went all the way to Devizes and back in time for delivering the boat back after 6 days of boating. I believe we did about 34 locks on our last day plus several swing bridges. Plenty of kingfishers were seen and the aqueducts and canal side pubs were great! Mr Richard Hollingsworth ~
Foxcub 9 to 16 May We had a relaxing time in Foxcub during a beautiful May week of slow cruising … to Dundas and back. Our fifth holiday with Foxhangers - we’ll be back for our sixth! Mr G Morris ~ Foxcub 13 - 20 September 2014 We had a brilliant time on the Kennet and Avon - we very quickly got the hang of navigating, and the training provided was really useful. People we met on the canal were really helpful and friendly and Foxcub was exceptionally clean and the facilities were great. The boat was surprisingly spacious and we very quickly made her feel like home! In one week we managed to make it to Froxfield in Berkshire and back to Seend Cleeve for dinner on Friday night before returning the boat on Saturday morning. We would definitely book with Foxhangers again if we return to the K&A. Many thanks for a brilliant holiday!
The Dewey Party ~ Foxcub 26 July - 2 August 2014 My holiday on Foxhanger's little boat, Foxcub, was memorable for numerous reasons but especially seeing a Kingfisher close up; herons, unafraid of approaching boats and the delight of moving through beautiful countryside and arriving in places of interest such as, Dundas, Bath and Bristol. The Narrow boat was well equipped and comfortable allowing me to feel I had enjoyed a really relaxing but active holiday. Brown-Hovelt ~ Foxcub August 2012 Thank you for such a lovely holiday on Foxcub August 13th-17th 2012. We had such a great time - everyone on the canal was so friendly and ready to help, and Foxcub was wonderful - only little but containing everything we needed. I think the fox on the tiller also liked the addition of a rather fetching red feather boa that we created for him for the trip. Thank you for an excellent briefing before we left off as well, which we definitely required! S C & N D ~ Foxcub June 2012 We were so impressed with Foxhangers from the minute we booked. Receiving such a comprehensive pack in the post prior to our holiday we knew the company was one we could trust. And with the convenience of being able to book groceries for our arrival, which were great, just added to the great service. They have thought of everything and our boat Foxcub was lovely and was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Thank you for a great holiday. The Jackson Family ~ Foxcub August 2011 The 'relaxing pub crawl' we had envisaged turned out to be more of a 'challenging adventure' for 3 ladies already in possession of their bus passes who had never done this before. Nevertheless, we had a great time and were extremely well looked after not only by members of Foxhangers staff but also numerous Fairy Godfathers along the way. Would definitely do it again, though possibly with a man on board! ~ FoxCub June 09 “Excellent Holiday aboard the 'Foxcub' (6/6/10-13/06/09) Ideal size for first timers.” Peter ~ Foxcub “Just wanted to thank you all for such a wonderful holiday on Foxcub - our beautiful, comfortable narrowboat for a week in July 3009. All the little touches such as the bed being made up, wine and chocolates in the fridge and the first class boat induction when we picked up Foxcub were superb, and all the staff were very helpful and attentive. Our boat was spotlessly clean and the inventory on the boat was also excellent - we didn’t even have to bother buying cleaning fluids - you thought of everything. We even hired our towels! We will recommend you all highly to friends and relatives and look forward to holidaying again.” Leona Reiter ~
