360° tour of Simply Be, narrowboat for sale

I am delighted to have done some 360 photography for Glascote Basin this week, hopefully the first of many much jobs, as I absolutely love doing 360 tours - and what could be better than doing them on narrowboats on the canals!

If the tour above doesn't work too well in this page, here's a link where you can view it online.

Simply Be, Bickerstaffe, 58ft
Virtual Tour | Lying at Glascote Basin

This is Simply Be, a 58ft enclosed cruiser stern narrowboat, built by in 2022 by Bickerstaffe Boat Company, who many will know as the manufacturer of Narrowboat “Silver Fox”, made famous by the Foxes Afloat and their YouTube channel. It's a lovely boat, in super condition, and I really enjoyed my visit.

Here's some of the details from the Basin:

Simply Be has a striking exterior, painted in deep metallic blue with black detailing, and with chrome fixtures and fittings, she also has bonded opening windows with privacy glass, giving the boat a modern look. The bow and stern are fully covered with folding canopies, the stern being a large area, with seating, doubling as a great area for entertaining.

She is powered by a modern 42hp Vetus engine located under the aft deck. She also has a Vetus bow thruster to aid manoeuvrability.

You can download the full details here:


If you'd like me to do a tour of your narrowboat please get in touch - whether it's to sell, to share with friends, or to show possible hirers. I will drive up to about 30 minutes from Glascote, more if I'm doing a batch of boats, or you can cruise to me!
