Narrowboat Crew Online

20th Feb 2019 - A site-wide update has been passed! Please don't panic if you find a bug... but please report it.
The canals and rivers of England, Scotland and Wales meander through over 2000 miles through some of the finest, greenest countryside you can imagine. At Narrowboat Crew we aim to match up boat owners and crew for their mutual benefit.

So, if you need crew for your narrowboat, barge or other canal vessel, please register as an owner with us and search for the right staff for you. If you need crew urgently, but have not registered as an owner with us, you can contact crew here...

Alternatively, if you want to join the crew of a narrowboat, why not register as crew and we will put you in touch with boat owners who need your skills.

If you have used our services, please provide feedback so we know how we are doing. Thanks. You can view our feedback here.

If you need to, please contact us.

News: To cover the cost of maintaining this website, I will be introducing two small charges for Crew. From 1 August 2015 new crew who join will be charged a registration fee of £5 which includes free membership for a year. From 1 August 2016 there will be an annual Crew membership fee of £10. Note that these charges only apply to Crew.
