Fair Dinkum, Fantessy and Freedom
42' Canal Cruisers Built for Comfort

Erie Canal Cruise Lines has combined the traditional style of English barges with the conveniences of modern live-aboard boats. The authentic appearance, simple operation, and comfortable interior make a Canal Cruiser the perfect choice for your canalling vacation.

Fair Dinkum, Fantessy and Freedom

Our Canal Cruisers are 42-foot long and 12-foot wide. Amenities include two private suites with full-size mattresses, separate lavs and heads, a large shower, a galley with modern conveniences, and a dinette that converts to an additional full-size bed. The social areas are located aft, while the private suites are forward. Convenient built-in steps on the fore and aft decks offer easy access to the cabin top for sunning or locking through. The turbo diesel engine, enclosed in a soundproof box, provides dependable and quiet power. Wheel steering and a bow thruster make navigating locks and tight channels safe and simple. The modified V-hull allows space for 350 gallons each of fresh water and fuel which provide ballast and stability.


A Boat Just Like Home

- Air conditioning for still summer nights

- Microwave to cook without heating the cabin
