Our previous new-build stock narrowboats

Our previous new-build stock narrowboats are a mixture of those built entirely in advance of sale and those sold while still a work in progress for which we were able to include a degree of customisation in the fixtures and fittings, creating a harmonious balance between their owner’s preferences and the ability to begin their travels on the waterways as soon as possible.
