The Laird is a compact 50ft cruiser stern canal narrowboat, introduced for 2020, ideal for a couple for extended cruising, which is probably why she is fully booked right through to November 2021! She is built in a contemporary ‘reverse’ layout with the main bedroom in the front of the boat, opening on to a fully enclosed bow deck with traditional cratch and covers. The Laird has a stylish private owner livery matching The Squire and The Count. Pet-friendly.
