All Electric MK Community Boat Commissioned Today – 6th October

The MK Community Boat, commissioned today (6th October) by the Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust, will be completely eco-friendly. Based on a 54ft long traditional narrowboat, it will use a ‘state of the art’ all-electric propulsion unit, instead of a traditional diesel engine. This will not only provide a unique experience by gliding almost silently along the canal, but also greatly reduce emissions.
