About Laughing Dog Boats
Laughing Dog Boats was established by Susan Meredith in 2010. The canal environment had captivated her from early childhood. Her love of boats, the inland waterways and the vibrant, diverse community that canals support eventually led her to buy a boat and to begin cruising through her retirement!
After living on a variety of narrow boats for several years, she bought 'Laughing Dog' and conceived the idea for Laughing Dog Boats!

In 2016, Escape the Rat Race acquired Laughing Dog Boats as a means of diversifying their offering of liveaboard boats. All boats are suitable for extended cruising, properly licensed, insured and maintained at a realistic cost. So you too can live the dream!


"Hi Susan, although we are both glad to be home we are missing Goosey like mad. We really enjoyed life aboard her. I have started sorting through all pics we took so I am reliving the holiday as I sort them out. So instead of living the dream we are now remembering the dream lived!"

"TA! Iris and I will never forget this fantastic holiday, and the adventures we have had on board 'Laughing Dog.'' We wish you well with your new enterprise and are sure it will be successful.
Until the next time, Lots of Love"

"Hope you are well. Have been thinking about Goosey as it was a year ago yesterday since we moved on. Hope the couple who had her after us enjoyed it as much as much as I did. Best Wishes"
- Fran, stayed on Goosemoor
