Follow the building of our new Milton Keynes Community Boat to be located on the Grand Union Canal at Campbell Wharf Milton Keynes
Conference to discuss major development and economic growth opportunities surrounding the Oxford Cambridge Arc
The charity building the boat, the Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust, is appealing to the public for help, seeking suggestions for a name, ready for the boat which will be launched next spring.
BoatyMKBoatface, Jolly Roger, Super Trouper, Black Beard and Lekky Boatie have already been suggested, but the Trust is looking for ideas that reflect its ‘state of the art’ electric power and eco-friendly specification, together with its location on the Milton Keynes part of the Grand Union Canal.

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.
