Canaltime, the narrowboat brand developed in 1997 to offer timeshare holidays afloat on the UK’s waterways, has been acquired by CLC World Resorts & Hotels; its four locations bringing the number of resorts in the company’s rapidly expanding worldwide portfolio to 32.
This is the second company acquisition by CLC World this year – the first being Resort Solutions Ltd – both of which open new doors and holiday experiences to all RSL managed resort owners and Canaltime narrowboat owners, as well as CLC World members.
Canaltime holidays have previously been available for exchange through CLC World multi destination and fractional owners’ clubs – but this latest acquisition increases availability for all those families thirsting for a holiday adventure on water.
The fleet of narrowboats, which sail out of UK marinas Sawley, Chirk, Whixall and Festival Park, will continue to be managed by Canaltime, with its expertise in this form of holiday taking, but the team will have access to the skills and support of CLC World’s highly experienced resort management and sophisticated systems.
“We are delighted to welcome Canaltime and their owners into the CLC World family,” said Lucien Le Moing, CLC World product & business development director.
Fast growing, CLC World is expanding at an unprecedented rate and the current number of resorts has now surpassed the number of years the company has been established. Next year sees it celebrate three decades in the business, and further new resort announcements are expected.
