Our history

The National Association of Boat Owners is dedicated to promoting the interests of private boaters on Britain’s canals and rivers and lakes. Volunteer members work with Navigation Authorities and public bodies so that boater’s voices and views can be heard when decisions and being made. This can only take place if boaters are informed, engaged and have the time to formulate policy and consider views. NABO has over 25 years experience and a strong track record of achievement.

We recently explored our early minutes of meeting. See this article on the early days. https://nabo.org.uk/index.php/reference/nabo/1213-happy-30th-nabo
