‘Y Knot’ Another Successful Boat Build and Launch from Foxhangers

The latest bespoke narrowboat to be built by the Foxhangers Team has been launched and new owners, Mr and Mrs Rawles, have taken charge!

Built to the highest standards, using the finest materials Foxhangers were very proud to hand this narrowboat over to the new owners.

At 65 Foot, the boat is spacious, modern and comfortable and the layout has been well considered. This boat has two double cabins, one bathroom and a large saloon. The well-equipped galley has all the comforts and equipment you would expect in a bespoke kitchen as well as underfloor storage.

Mr & Mrs Rawles are pictured here choosing the colour scheme and the fixtures & fittings. Nigel and David, who head up the Boat Building Team, were always on hand to give advice and suggestions.

The Master Cabin offers plenty of hanging storage. There is a large wardrobe as well as easily accessible under the bed storage.

The guest cabin at the bow of the boat has been designed with the family in mind. The bed extends into a full 6ft wide king size bed so there is lots of space for the grandchildren to stay.

Why Knot has two sources of heating which will keep the boat warm throughout the winter. Thin radiators were built into the furniture and, a 5kw multifuel stove was installed in the saloon to ensure the Rawles’ stay cosy in the coldest winter.

Customers and staff alike were very excited as the boat was launched by specialist crane on our wharf.

Mrs Rawles can’t believe it! After the months of planning and building, her dream has finally come true! We love how happy she looks!

With over 2000 miles of canal network to explore Y Knot will take them around the country as they enjoy their new lifestyle. We wish them Bon Voyage!
