Yes a narrowboat is a long,narrow and rather flat boat, a barge so to speak.Depending on your context you can translate it with Kanalboot,Lastkahn or Hausboot,it depends on what it's used for.If your text talks about travel I would translate it as Hausboot since it is possible to rent them for this purpose.
