Professional Narrowboat Building & Repairs

Every aspect of our narrowboat builds and repairs are carried out to the highest standards.
We accomplish this by using only the highest quality materials and components from the industry’s leading manufacturers.

We just bought our first boat and had to have a few bits done on it. We decided on a complete repaint. Jamie and the team have been brilliant and the result is amazing. Always happy to help with things we didn’t anticipate and was immediate in his response to needing a new Oven. It’s a big investment and having honest traders along the way is an important thing.

Called in yesterday with our boat, had an issue with our electrics not charging while cruising, these guys sorted it within an hour, having 3 mechanics/ electric services look at this prior and going away scratching their heads, all of them thinking it was the alternator which it wasn’t these guys found the problem straight away, replacing cables etc there and then. Can’t recommend these enough, booked in for some other work done too early next year so will see you guys then
Dean Griffiths
Jamie has made and fitted two pairs of side doors and a pair of rear cabin doors today.
His workmanship is marvellous. Highly recommended and on our doorstep too.
Already got the next project booked!
Thank you again Jamie.
Just returned to the boat after having its hull blacked at Jamie’s boat fitting. Excellent job done, Will definitely use again and would recommend to other boaters.
Diane Lee Glover
Jamie has just completed a beautiful galley refit on our NB Ladybird. Can’t thank him enough. We’ve owned the Ladybird for 11 years and have had many jobs done during that time which we’ve been pleased with, but Jamie’s work comparatively is in a class of its own… Outstanding! He is extremely hard-working, his communications have been excellent throughout, and his work is competitively priced. He completed the work well within the timescale suggested. He uses very high-quality materials and gave us excellent recommendations for appliances etc. We highly recommend him.

Jamie refitted my bathroom’s new toilet, basin and shower. He was on time extremely professional and as you can see did a fantastic job… one very happy customer. Thanks, Jamie
Alison Gallacher

Martyn Southgate
Jamie is a nice guy, he did a lovely job of my bathroom. He ordered all the materials at a cost I could afford. He worked hard and completed it in a good time frame. Chuffed thank you
Lisa Jarvis
Kitchen remodel done by Jamie on my narrowboat. I live 100+ miles away from my boat and I was fortunate to find Jamie. He came up with some great ideas, kept me totally informed along the way, was proactive with advice and problem-solving and he kept the job moving forwards to completion. His workmanship is great and he is 100% reliable. Space is very limited in my galley so he hand-built the units and I got an even better kitchen with great touches at an affordable price.

I’d 100% recommend him. In fact he’s coming back to do the bathroom next! Thanks Jamie
