Our Personalised Narrowboat Range

By opting for one of our Personalised narrowboats you are investing in the same hand-built quality you’d get with a bespoke build but at a fixed cost and with a design and layout that‘s tried and tested. This cuts down on procurement, measuring and design and that allows us to fix the cost. We use time proven and reliable products and our small build team know exactly the results they are after in producing your narrowboat.


Two popular layouts at a fixed price

Our Personalised narrowboats are based on one of two layouts. Either a standard configuration, with the bedroom in the stern, or the popular reverse layout with the bedroom at the bow. These can be specified in cruiser, semi-traditional or traditional styles and are offered at a fixed price.


Personalise your narrowboat

There is plenty of opportunity to personalise your boat by not only choosing the external style (traditional, semi traditional or cruiser) but by picking the colours and finishes to suit your tastes. From shower backings to kitchen doors and from worktop colours & tiles to hand basin shape there is a lot you can do to personalise your canal boat.

Below is what you can expect from the internal and external fit out specification on a Personalised narrowboat from us.
