Electra - A brand-new, fully-electric, 54-foot narrowboat launched in Milton Keynes for Canal tours

Inspired by the success of the John Bunyan boat in Bedford, and informed by other Trusts’ small trip boats, the BMK Waterway Trust will launch the Milton Keynes Community Boat in late spring 2021.

The 'Community Boat' has been given its name because it is run entirely by volunteers.

The official website for Electra says,

''Electra is a brand-new 12-guest, fully-electric, 54-foot narrowboat. It has full disabled access, with a lift and a toilet that take wheelchairs.

Electra will operate out of the new Campbell Wharf development in the heart of Milton Keynes and offer cruises on the Grand Union Canal towards Cosgrove and Fenny Stratford. It will offer public cruises, private charters, seasonal specials and ‘park & parish cruises’ for local communities.''
