The Pennine Moonraker
The Pennine Moonraker is a well equipped 70' narrowboat purpose built as a trip boat by Hancock and Lane Ltd of Daventry, England in 1984. The boat was extensively refurbished in 1996 and now boasts a well stocked bar, comprehensive galley and new toilet. The boat has a capacity of 50 passengers, a crew of 3 and can cruise at a maximum speed of 4 m.p.h.
The boat is skippered by John Lund, who has had a lifelong interest in canals. He holds a Boatman's Licence issued by the Registrar General of Shipping and Seamen in Cardiff (part of the Department of Transport). John has had a lifelong love of canals and takes an active interest in the current restoration of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. The boat has been in his family's ownership since 1991.
The Bar The well stocked bar includes Tetley's Smoothflow bitter and Carlsberg Export lager, both on draught. There is also a good selection of spirits and wines, as well as soft drinks. Tea and coffee are also available.
Fifty passengers can be comfortably seated in the bright interior. The large number of windows give everyone onboard excellent views during cruises. Looking Forwards
