BROMLEY YOUTH TRUST - ROSANNE NARROWBOAT

Bookings: 37A Sutherland Avenue, Biggin Hill, Westerham, Kent, TN16 3HE
Rosanne is a cruiser-style narrowboat (not a barge or longboat, so you can leave the Viking hats at home!). She is 70 feet long and 7 feet wide. This is the maximum size that will pass through all the locks on the extensive English canal system. Many locks will however take two narrowboats the size of Rosanne side by side.
Taking Rosanne out with your group may seem a little intimidating so Bromley Youth Trust provide familiarisation days when you can get the feel of the tiller whilst accompanied by an experienced skipper, before embarking on a cruise with your group.

All of our boats are available for hire by any type of group, and we can provide steerers if required. Everyone can enjoy a cruise and enjoy the fun of helping operate 70ft-long narrowboats along the canal and through some of the country’s deepest locks.
Over 90% of our visitors are local residents that come from a wide variety of groups including school groups, youth clubs and adventure playgroups, local businesses, organisations for people with learning difficulties, Scouts and Guides, groups from hostels, care homes and young offenders.
