The New Boutique Narrowboat – Paper Kite
Our new luxury canal boat, Paper Kite, is a 47 foot narrowboat being built by us at Boutique Narrowboats during 2024. Everything on Paper Kite is being designed especially for our guests – from the beautiful lines of the prestigious Tim Tyler hull, to the interior carpentry in our bespoke style. The design drawings on this page give a flavour of the layout.
This canal boat is the perfect small size for novices but is big on comfort. The king size fully-sprung mattress is permanently set up the in the bow of the boat, so there is no need to make up the bed every night. The bathroom features a roomy shower with designer basin. The kitchen, although petite, is perfectly-formed, with full size oven, fridge and microwave. A little induction hob does away with the need for gas on this canal boat.
