Narrowboat Jubilee was commissioned at short-notice in early 2002 for revenue-earning service as the new trip boat to be used on the Ashby Canal. She operating from Sutton Cheney Wharf in Leicestershire, and also from Shakerstone during the annual Shakerstone festivals, racking up around 1,000 engine hours per year. She was named by the Mayor of Bosworth & Hinckley Borough Council, a brass plaque carried documents the name matching Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002. The original design consisted of a full-length roof, with half-length cabin sides. A horseshoe of seating for the guests was in the hold-area, with a L-shapped galley and toilet in the fore-end of the cabin (both accessed from the hold). The rear doors provided access to a separate, short engine room. The original engine is a modern four-cylinder Isuzu high-speed diesel. Pictures from this era can be found on the wall of the pub in Shackerstone, plus from online.[nb. Balmaha]
