We’ve all experienced a lot of change of the last couple of years, but we invite you to celebrate a positive change with us now.

This year sees the introduction of a new boat class – our Signature range – plus a brand new look for Black Prince Holidays!

Black Prince Signature range narrowboat

Exactly 35 years ago Black Prince launched the newly designed ‘QE’ range from our base at Stoke Prior – does anyone remember that far back?

Since then, our specialised team of boat builders have developed and innovated narrowboat design, breaking new ground with the latest in modern trends, to create a more comfortable and enjoyable boating experience

New for 2022, we are excited to launch our Signature range. This new narrowboat design will be implemented across all our fleet moving forward and will gradually arrive at all our nine hire bases across the UK.

To celebrate our boating innovations, we have refreshed the Black Prince branding to better reflect our new and modern approach to holidays on the UK inland waterways.

This new branding was created following feedback from our guests, regulars who have experienced our holidays first hand and know them best. They told us that the history and royal connections of ‘The Black Prince’ was important, together with imagery that reflected our friendly and approachable ethos. So, with that in mind we are proud to reveal our new branding that will take us forward into 2022 and beyond.

Black Prince Signature range – new for 2022

Hand built with a contemporary bespoke design, this new class firmly puts the Black Prince stamp on the future of modern narrowboating.

As well as the fresh decor, we’ve enhanced the practicalities: there’s a larger kitchen area with more worktop space making room for a microwave. We’ve included all the modern necessities such as multiple USB sockets for phone charging, wireless charging ads and a flat-screen TV. Plus, our new black-out blinds and bespoke mattresses will ensure a good night’s sleep after an enjoyably busy day.

The new Signature range will be available at our Worcestershire (Stoke Prior) and Warwickshire (Napton) bases for 2022.
