East Manchester Community Boat Project
NEW WEBSITE COMING FOR 2018
Community Spirit 2, is a specially built 57 foot narrowboat, centrally heated, with extra large cabin windows to allow all passengers a wonderful view of the passing countryside. We can take up to 12 passengers in her light and airy open plan cabin. A lift at the bow and a specially designed gangplank allows us to take up to 4 wheelchairs and can be used for our less mobile passengers too.
Our galley has a water heater for that essential cuppa, we provide the cups, cutlery and water, we ask that you supply your milk, tea and coffee.
A unique feature allows our passengers to steer the boat from the cabin, thus allowing disabled passengers the opportunity to enjoy a new experience and be a complete part of the trip.
We offer 2/3 hour day trips to Droylsden and Hyde, or a longer trip to Marple will take around 6 hours. We also can take a less scenic route to Stalybridge where passengers can experience the lock system. Stalybridge trips are limited to 10 passengers as more crew are needed to work the locks.
Explore our website and come and book a trip with us. We sail all year round, depending on weather conditions in the winter months.
