Our custom-built hand riveted narrowboats mark a return to the older and more traditional methods of boatbuilding.
This vessel truly stands out as a landmark project in boatbuilding, taking a design from around 1900 and bringing it up-to-date using traditional techniques. The last such boat known to have been built using this design and method dates from over 60 years ago:
• 61 foot long
• 14 tonnes of steel
• over 8000 drilled holes
• 5000 hot rivets applied by hand
• thousands of man hours
• first boat of this design built since circa 1947
