Welcome to the website of the historic narrow boat Beatty. Beatty was originally built in 1937 as a cargo carrying boat. In the early 1960s she was converted with a full-length cabin and continues to cruise throughout the waterways system.  This website contains details about Beatty’s history and present day use.
