Talk to any traditional boat enthusiast and the name Canal Transport Services is held in high regard. Note the flowing lines and quality of her steelwork, but the main talking point has to be the magnificent Gardner 4LK diesel engine, which sits majestically in its own cabin and produces the kind of mellow exhaust note that many boat owners can only dream of. At just over 57ft long and with 57hp on tap, Canterbury Swan is a craft on which to enjoy all the canals and rivers of the connected inland waterways system. Internally the fit out is in oak and painted surfaces forward of the painted engine room with a traditionally scumbled and painted Boatmans cabin. Creature comforts are provided by a Kabola diesel boiler which is complemented by both a solid fuel stove and a range. A full width shower room houses a composting toilet, along with the usual washbasin and shower cubicle. On board power is provided by a 24V system, with a 3kW pure sine wave inverter/charger and a 2.8kW petrol generator, the latter of which is housed in a separate compartment on the starboard side and which slides out on rails. Three 100W solar panels should keep your batteries in tip top condition.
