The Bespoke Boat Company wins favourite widebeam

Nearly 25,000 people visited the 24th Crick Boat Show, which took place at Crick Marina near Daventry, UK.

The event, which was organised by Waterways World in partnership with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Waterside & Marina, saw more than 200 exhibitors gather by the Grand Union Canal Leicester Line for three days of trading and entertainment, with a Trade & Preview Day sponsored by Haven Knox-Johnston.

Attendance was down slightly on 2023 levels, which organisers put down to the heavy rain on the Sunday of the show.

“Crick Boat Show is now firmly established as the focal point of the year for the canal boat industry,” said Peter Johns, publisher of Waterways World and show director. “Almost 40 boats were on display from many of the country’s top boat builders and boat brokerages, as well as a superb display of historic working narrowboats.

“Boat builders reported healthy levels of interest, with many orders secured, and our Preview Day worked well with most boat viewings fully booked and 1,600 trade and public visitors attending.”

Attractions at the event included free boat trips along the Grand Union Canal, free seminars and masterclasses on boat ownership, live bands, and a beer festival sponsored by LeeSan.

In addition, visitors were able to vote for their favourite boats in the show with the narrowboat winner being Highgrove from Kingsground presented by Lakeland Leisure Estates and the favourite widebeam being Luna from The Bespoke Boat Company. Crick Boat Show 2025 will take place from 24-26 May.
