Information

Here is a brief overview of The QEF Jubilee canal boat operating out of Winkwell Dock

 

Design : The wide beam boat sleeps up to eight (with up to three wheelchairs) and is specially designed and equipped for disabled people. Wider than standard canal boats, giving comfortable access for wheelchairs. A large, covered seating area to the front and a large open deck at the stern. There is a wheelchair accessible boarding ramp for getting onto and off of the towpath and a hydraulic lift for access to the interior. A wheelchair user can enjoy using the joystick or wheel to steer the boat.

Features : Gas central heating
Two large water tanks supply the hot and cold running water.

Saloon : Two settees convert to beds for three people.

Kitchen : well-equipped galley with full size cooker, microwave and ‘fridge.

Berths : The main bedroom has a wheeled, adjustable hospital bed and hoist tracking system. Two further cabins with 2 bunks in each.

Bedding : Duvets and pillows are provided but please bring your own bed linen, plus towels and tea towels.

Bathroom : The boat benefits from a wheelchair accessible toilet and shower with hoist tracking system. There is also a separate WC. The overhead hoist enables a disabled person to move around the shower room

Electric : With the engine running, a Travelpower unit supplies 240v electricity to sockets throughout the boat. A small inverter supplies low-power 240v from the batteries (enough to run the TV and to charge a mobile ‘phone) when the engine is off. 

Additional Information: Our trained skipper will greet your party and give you comprehensive instruction, with particular regard to Health and Safety. He will instruct and acquaint you with all aspects of the boat and will accompany you through the first couple of locks to ensure you are confident in managing the boat.

If required, a skipper can accompany you on the trip at an additional cost of £80 per day. He would not stay overnight but would join the boat each morning.
