BrasenoseParty narrowboat | Sleeps 2 – 12 | Mon and Fri start, full week and short breaks
For a big group Brasenose is the boat to book…
BRASENOSE IS 70FT (21.2M) LONG, BUT EASY TO HANDLE. (FULL TUITION IS GIVEN: YOU NEED NOT WORRY ABOUT HANDLING THE BOAT.) THE BOAT IS WELL PLANNED AND VERY COMFORTABLE EVEN WITH 12 CREW ON BOARD. BRASENOSE IS A FABULOUS BOAT FOR LARGER PARTIES, ITS FLEXIBILITY OF SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS MEANS IT CAN COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATE ANYTHING FROM A FAMILY OF FOUR WANTING MASSES OF SPACE TO A PARTY OF 12 HAVING A CELEBRATION WEEKEND, A HEN PARTY, STAG PARTY, OR A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY GET TOGETHER.
There is a large living area with seating for the whole crew and two dining areas. Two large bathrooms both have large showers and flush toilets, with a good size galley for preparing meals for the masses! Full central heating means cruising in the spring or winter is warm and cosy.
The dinette area is permanently located, so jigsaws and games can continue through the day. Outside there’s the large rear deck with seats for outside dining or checking on the steerer’s prowess!
Brasenose is available for reunions, hen and stag parties. (She offers a great way to have a bit of fun!). Our location (in the centre of Oxford) has many pubs, restaurants, and public transport etc. within 200 yards. (So gathering at different times is not a problem.)
