Litania is a 38 foot narrow boat equipped for day trips for up to 10 people with large windows, cushioned bench seats in the saloon and a large fore deck with side benches. With a semi traditional stern there is also safe seating at the stern during cruising. It is heated for all year round use and has a small galley with a gas hob, fridge and sink unit with crockery and cutlery for 10 who can sit comfortably around the two fold away tables. There is a small flushing toilet with wash hand basin. The boat can be used for day cruises, training in canal and boating skills days, and as a floating class room. Based in the Somerset Coal canal there is good parking and level access to the canal side for ease of boarding. The Coal Canal itself has a cafe and public and accessible toilets.


Litania is licensed with the Canal and River Trust as a training and day boat and is covered by third party and public liability insurance. She is an accredited RYA Sailability centre and is run as part of the registered charity ‘Canal Ministries’. The boat is maintained to the highest standards with commercial boat safety certification and appropriate safety equipment including life jackets for all those on board as necessary. Extra details have been added to help those with mobility problems to move around the boat safely. All appropriate safeguarding and safety policies and volunteer vetting processes are in place to give the highest confidence to any user group with children or vulnerable adults with details available on request.
