Carefree Cruising are pleased to confirm that, in conjunction with BC Boat Management and Ownashare Cruising, they will be sponsoring the National Boat Share Show at Braunston Marina in Spring 2016. This is the National Boat Share Show’s 3rd year and it promises to be better than ever. All three management companies will be exhibiting boats and this offers prospective owners a unique opportunity to see and compare the very wide range of shared ownership narrowboats available.

Carefree Cruising will be exhibiting their brand new 2016 syndicate 58ft Semi-trad narrowboat at the show, along with several of their existing syndicate narrowboats. Different styles and layouts will be on display, including pet friendly and the popular pet free syndicate narrowboats.

The show will be attended by Carefree Cruising’s Managing Director Artie Chalmers, Technical Manager Paul Wheeler and Syndicates Manager Christina Farrall, as well as current syndicate members. This provides an opportunity for prospective owners to obtain information from the management company, ask questions, research how shared ownership works; but most importantly to speak to current syndicate members to get honest feedback on how shared ownership will works for them and the quality of the boats in the syndicate.

A range of shares will be on offer at the event, with prices starting from just £995. Carefree Cruising has a unique allocation system which allows owners to specify in which season they would like to cruise and for how long; giving owners the peace of mind knowing that their chosen share suits their needs. Carefree Cruising offers shares with School Holiday Entitlement; these guarantee owners cruising in the school holiday at no premium!

The National Boat Share Show will be held on the weekend of 23rd and 24th April, 10am to 5pm. Entrance and on site car parking are free. In addition to the shared ownership narrowboats on display, there will be a range of marine related exhibitors in the main marquee and hot and cold refreshments will be available.
