The Northern Boat Show have announced that more narrowboats will be joining its line-up of power boats, ribs and sailing boats on show at Liverpool on the 23rd to the 25th June.

Canal boats being exhibited will include those from Tyler Broom, Narrowboats Ltd, Viking Canal Boats and  locally-based Collingwood Boat Company. Including narrowboats, broad beams and even a floating apartment.
