Celtic Kiwi is a smart 58ft semi-trad narrow boat launched in 2003. She is well laid-out for 2 to 6 people with plenty of living space. She is currently based at Wigram's Turn Marina, at the junction of the Oxford and Grand Union canals.
The bedroom has a double bed extendable to 5ft width; the bathroom a flush toilet, hand basin and shower; the kitchen a double oven, microwave, 4-ring gas hob and electric fridge. The dining area has a raised dinette which converts to a double bed, with storage below the seats. Forward of this is a sitting area with more cupboards, two armchairs (which convert to single beds) and a multi-fuel stove. For entertainment we have a Freeview enabled TV and a DVD/CD player as well as a DAB radio.
CK has a
Eberspacher powered (fitted 2014) central heating system with hot
water radiators throughout the cabins. LED lighting has recently
been installed throughout.

Layout schematic is from a very similar boat
Celtic Kiwi was originally commissioned by the Boatshare Company, and the owners converted to private management in September 2005. We donít employ expensive boat management companies. We spend all our funds keeping the boat in good condition.We elect a 3 person owner-management team of Boat Manager, Treasurer and Assistant Boat Manager at each AGM (usually held in September), where we also set the plans for the year ahead. If other decisions are required during the year, the Boat Manager will circulate the owners who discuss and decide the matter by email.
CK has gold member RCR cover and has current BSS certification
CK has a gold licence covering BW and EA waters, which owners find
useful for visiting the Thames and the Nene - both only a few days'
cruise from Wigrams. Wigrams is also very well placed for canal
was our first boat share and we have thoroughly enjoyed both our
time on the boat and getting to know the other owners. We will be
very sad to give this up but the practicalities of working abroad
won't allow us to take advantage of it for at least 3 years.
