This Luxury Canal Boat With Lavish Interiors Makes For The Perfect Manchester Staycation

Escape from Manchester, to Manchester.

The first of a fleet of stunning luxury canal boats has officially taken to the water at Castlefield Locks, and it promises to provide a unique stay for those looking to explore Manchester for all it has to offer. Sitting pretty on the historic canal, The Vätten Hüs is ideally located – with a number of fantastic bars, restaurants and beer gardens right on its doorstep.

Designed and developed by duo Erin and Harry – who are behind PW Boats (inspired by Prestige Worldwide from Stepbrothers) – the 6 berth, 70-ft long boat has been designed with friendly getaways in mind, providing space enough for six to comfortably coinhabit the space.

Flawlessly designed by interior designer Claudia Chez, the boat boasts French, art deco inspired finishes – providing an air of elegance for those who get the chance to stay. From king-sized bedrooms to an open plan kitchen and living space, the boat is literally 10x more lavish than most actual homes – and even features its very own outdoor deck that guests can use to soak up the sun with a drink.

Teaming up with Frog Manchester for the finishing touches, the boat also features a number of gorgeous social media moments, with showstopping floral displays taking centre stage from the ceiling including a huge pampas grass installation above the kitchen, and a pretty hydrangea display meandering above one of the beds.
