    We cannot thank this company enough for their assistance in selling a boat on behalf of an estate which we are administrating. Liam and his team are professional but also extremely helpful in our endeavours to convert assets into money for the sake of the beneficiaries. We highly recommend them.

  • A. Carey (Friday, July 20 18 03:42 pm BST)

    The team at Narrowboats and specifically Scott have been fantastic throughout the whole process. We would definitely recommend them and will come back for our next boat in the future.

  • Dave & Sue -Carpe Diem (Widebeam Sailaway Lined) (Friday, June 22 18 09:20 am BST)

    Excellent service before, during and after the purchase of our new build Widebeam. They were always ready to answer our endless questions. Liam has a great team of people who always have a smile for you. Thanks again!

  • Vaughan Lewis (Friday, June 08 18 03:31 pm BST)

    Scott is a very helpful member of the team. Throughout he has been very approachable and enabling, reassuring me throughout the process.

    No doubt this job has taken its toll on his skills but again throughout has used his initiative and remained approachable daily. Which he demonstrated fully completely and competency.

    Well Done Scott :) & Thank You Narrowboats Ltd.

  • Harry & Jacquie Ashworth (Friday, June 08 18 09:36 am BST)


    From our introduction, to finalising the purchase the service was second to none.

    Scott was so helpful and made this an excellent experience.

    Big thanks to you Scott and the entire Narrowboats Ltd team, we love our new boat!

  • Andrew Manning (Wednesday, June 06 18 03:09 pm BST)

    Selling a 10 month old Narrowboat - you'd think it would be a piece of cake. Well not necessarily. the experience of the team at Narrowboats Ltd was crucial to a effective sale. Scott's confidence and reassurance throughout the process was very important and now Lord Drinian has found a new home.Thank you to Scott and the rest of the team at Narrowboats Ltd.

  • Anonymous (Monday, May 21 18 01:34 pm BST)

    For the sale of our 45' Narrowboat we were very pleased with the level of service from all concerned and we would highly recommend selling through Narrowboats Ltd.

  • Nic & tracey (Saturday, May 12 18 04:27 pm BST)

    Scott, David & Liam were very knowledgable and helpful throughout us buying Sapphire Ford. We bought a 4 year old Pioneer and could not be more happy with her. High recommend Narrowboats Ltd.

  • Adrian Clarke (Tuesday, May 08 18 12:51 pm BST)

    I found the staff easy speak to and very knowledgable in all things boats. Very helpful when I needed assistance. I would recommend Narrowboats Ltd to any first time buyer of a boat. Great service from start to finish. Scott was great at keeping me up to date at all times throughout the process.

  • Dean narrowboats knot (Thursday, April 26 18 11:06 am BST)

    Excellent fast and helpful service with quick sale of my boat Not. I would highly recommend to anyone.

  • Mr Parvin (Tuesday, April 24 18 01:22 pm BST)

    This was the 2nd boat i have sold through Narrowboats Ltd. Scott was understanding and patient all through the sale. I would thoroughly recommend.

  • Mr & Mrs Harlow (Tuesday, April 24 18 01:20 pm BST)

    This is our first boat and Dave and the staff have been great and very informative.
    A few teething problems on delivery but the team have been great soothing them out with Dave coming all the way down to hand over and see if we were settling in.

  • Mr. Bennett (Friday, March 16 18 12:51 pm GMT)

    I have found that all my dealings with Narrowboats Ltd have been excellent, the staff have been most helpful in all my dealings with selling my boat 'Firbob'. I would recommend that if you are either buying or selling this is a great company to deal with.

  • Craig Scaife (Tuesday, March 06 18 05:49 am GMT)

    With thanks to
    Liam, Dave and Scott and all the team at Narrowboats ltd, for their support and services in the purchase of my first Narrowboat. The reassurance of purchasing through yourselves provided me with trustworthy direction and advice. Not to mention a boat to be proud of!

  • Robin (Friday, February 16 18 03:30 pm GMT)

    When I decided to buy a narrowboat, I knew very little about them. I did some searching online and decided what minimum features I wanted and then I went to Narrowboats at Wincham. There I found both Dave and Liam extremely helpful and patient. Fortunately, they had a boat which ticked all the boxes but that's not the end of it. Dave was able to arrange for the boat to be taken out of the water for the survey and then for some work to be done. Both Dave and Liam were then helpful in negotiations about the price because of the work that was needed. All in all, the whole process was made very straightforward and stress-free.

  • Terry Basley (Friday, December 15 17 05:28 pm GMT)

    Excellent service from Liam and Dave. Apart from the purchase, they also organised the cranage, hull blacking, and gave recommendations for insurance.

  • D Stanforth (Friday, December 15 17 03:12 pm GMT)

    Had offers on the boat as soon as it had been put in water after being blacked, thanks to Liam and David the boat sold before being put on the open market.
    Sale was trouble free.

  • Jane Bowles (Thursday, December 14 17 12:26 pm GMT)

    A very big thank you to Liam and the whole team at Narrowboats Ltd. They went way beyond the call of duty to enable the smooth purchase and ready the NB Jador for me. I have many years of sailing behind me but narrowboats are quite different.there is so much to learn and experience aboard my second home. Thank you once again for everything.

  • Ray & Helen Robinson. (Monday, October 23 17 03:56 pm BST)

    Having just completed the sale of our narrowboat " Robin " we would thoroughly recommend " Narrowboats Ltd " for their professionalism.David has been excellent, friendly, efficient and a good communicator which has made for a smooth and trouble free sale. Many thanks.

  • Nicolene Evans (Monday, October 09 17 08:23 pm BST)

    I would like to opportunity to thank Liam and his team for the excellent service on the purchase of our slimline widebeam through Narrowboats LTD. We are very pleased with our purchase and the sale was very straightforward. Liam's effort and determination completing the sale was top notch. Thanks again for all your help and support.

  • K Neil (Monday, October 02 17 10:39 am BST)

    Great Service from both Liam & David. They arranged for a crew and quotes for work to make the boat a live aboard prior to my offer as well as organising all of the work to tie in with my delivery date. I asked Liam for a 'whole' package of work, transport and information and he provided all before his estimated timeline. They also negotiated the price several times on my behalf to the vendor and I was very pleased with the outcome and service.

  • Gerard Hastings (Sunday, October 01 17 10:24 am BST)

    When I bought my widebeam from Narrowboats Ltd, I was a complete novice. I hadn't even sailed in a boat. So I was feverous and apprehensive. Dave and Liam guided me through the whole process every step of the way. They were helpful and sensitive to my requests, changes of mind and indecisive situation. They helped me with various queries and were a mine of information at all times. Now I am living on board they still give me follow-up calls to see that everything is going well and I feel comfortable about calling them for additional support now and again. The decision to buy a houseboat was the right one for me. I should have done it years ago. I'm very proud of my new home and grateful for the support offered during the process of purchasing her. I would recommend this amazing team to anyone considering buying a boat. Thanks guys - you've made all the difference.

  • Debra Lindsay (Tuesday, September 26 17 03:57 pm BST)

    Having purchased a beautiful new Pioneer we have been very pleased with not just the service whilst planning/purchasing but the aftercare too. We are now living the dream thanks to Narrowboats Ltd and their amazing value Pioneer concept. We have had the boat a fair while now and recently had a slight problem with an interior panel which was promptly attended to and repaired as good as new. They attended the boat at our mooring over 70 miles away - distance wasn’t a problem. This was excellent aftercare service and we would highly recommend them

  • Nathan Julien (Monday, September 25 17 05:45 pm BST)

    Narrowboat limited helped me buy my first boat about 5 months ago and I have nothing but good things to say about them! From first contact to date they have been nothing short of amazing! Helping me with the sale and even giving me advice over the phone about any problems I've had on the water. They really did make buying a floating home a easy as buying a new tv!

  • Peter Owen (Wednesday, September 20 17 10:00 pm BST)

    Friendly and helpful sales team, the purchase and transportation of my 60' x 12' Collingwood sailaway went smoothly.
    Have now owned/sailed the vessel for several months on the Leeds & Liverpool. I am gradually fitting out interior, intending to move aboard full-time after sale of house. She regularly receives compliments and admiration from passers by and other boaters we meet on the cut.

  • Steve T (Saturday, August 26 17 11:45 am BST)

    Many thanks to Liam and his team at Narrowboats LTD for their help in selling my narrowboat for me as I had to move off it for health reasons. They were extremely helpful throughout the sale and kept in touch all the way. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of selling or buying as I bought my first boat from Liam 4 years ago! All the best Steve.

  • Paul Radcliffe (Nb Hannah) (Wednesday, August 09 17 04:05 pm BST)

    Highly impressed with the friendly, professional attitude of the staff at Narrowboats Ltd. Boat sold within 5 weeks of going on sale. Whole process very smooth and efficient. Would recommend.

  • M Rickatson (Memory Maker) (Tuesday, July 25 17 10:52 am BST)

    The largest single purchase in my life other than a house.

    But what a truly fantastic experience I was kept informed weekly with photos of the build visited the builder several times but nothing prepared me for the final breathtaking result.

    I could not be happier with my 57 x 11 widebeam, the quality, craftsmanship and attention to my requests was perfect in every way.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Narrowboats limited,and Collingwoods to anyone.
    We had a very small number of delivery hiccups as can be expected with any new Boat but all fixed without question quickly and professionally I would be a reference anytime.

  • Eddie Narrowboats Bodacious (Tuesday, May 09 17 04:10 pm BST)

    Narrowboats Ltd have been brilliant throughout the sale of my boat. I would not hesitate to use them or recommend them. They dealt with all of the sale from valuing by boat for paying me out hassle free. They did an excellent job of valeting the boat and sorted a few minor jobs prior to making the sale. All in all I'm very very pleased.

  • Terry Mills (Daisy) (Tuesday, April 11 17 10:55 am BST)

    Both members of Narrowboats could not be more helpful., As a total novice they were forthcoming in every aspect of the sale and helping me purchase my license etc.

  • Paul Tothill (Sunday, February 12 17 09:09 am GMT)

    Many Thanks for the quick and painless sale of our much loved "Sunset Song" We hope the new owners have as much joy from her as we did over the last 12 years.

  • Martyn sculpher (Friday, February 03 17 02:43 pm GMT)


    We purchased our first boat from Wincham Wharf Boat Sales in October 2016.
    We are currently moored at Wincham Wharf and will be until May when the Leigh Branch 'Vickers Hall Bridge No 56 works are completed allowing access to the 'Ribble Link' to Lancaster.

    The 'customer experience' we have met far exceeds our expectations.

    The services we sought, supplied by the Narrowboat Ltd Team, have been nothing short of quality. Friendly and executed in a professional manner. Always there and 'hands on'.

    Survey supplied by Narrowboat surveyors. (Independent).
    We had our Cratch Cover replaced. Quality.
    The hull blackened. Quality.
    Upholstery. Quality.
    On site Engineers. Qualtiy.
    Moorings, Standard price per lenght. Quality

    We would like to say a big personal thanks to Liam, Dave and Geoff.

  • Chris Cobb (Wednesday, February 01 17 02:15 pm GMT)

    A big thank you to Liam and David for pulling out the stops for me in getting my beautifully fitted out 57ft Collingwood widebeam on time. Excellent service and outcome. I thoroughly recommend Narrowboats Ltd.

  • Vince Young (Thursday, January 19 17 11:07 am GMT)

    After meeting Liam at Barrowboats Ltd I agreed to sell our Narrowboat through them.

    I found Liam and his staff to be very courteous and profession, most importantly giving me updates and feedback from potential buyers which was a great help.

    I am pleased to say that within 8 weeks my boat was sold in a pleasent, hassle - free transaction. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all concerned at Narrowboats Ltd and would highly recommend their services.

    Good luck in the future all,

    Vince: Knutsford.

  • Ian Bellis (Lovely Jubbly) (Monday, December 19 16 10:15 am GMT)

    Dealt with Liam from start to finish. Bought the boat several years ago from Liam and sold the boat again through narrowboats. A fantastic service, thanks once again.

  • S. Heels (Tuesday, November 08 16 12:32 pm GMT)

    Everybody has been amazing from start to finish. Very polite and friendly.

  • Mr. Walker (Wednesday, November 02 16 04:42 pm GMT)

    Very swift service which was trouble free!!

  • Mr. Latham (Wednesday, October 12 16 08:54 am BST)

    Boat was delivered for sale 11th August 2016 and was in the water for approx 3 weeks. I was advised to have it taken out of the water as it gave an underwater view of the boat and a more complete and
    easy access to view the boat. This had the desired effect and the boat was sold on the 23rd September 2016. I found both Liam and Dave very helpful and professional throughout the sale and I would
    not hesitate in recommending Narrowboats Ltd to anyone selling or purchasing a narrowboat.

  • John & Pat Holmes (Thursday, September 29 16 12:04 pm BST)

    Having purchased one of 'Narrowboats' Pioner craft from Wincham Wharf and dwelt on her for the last three months Pat & I can endorse the product as being a lovely environment within which to
    live. She completely fulfils our expectations and we'd like to pass on our thanks to the team for all their assistance.

  • Robin Whittington (Thursday, September 22 16 12:03 am BST)

    I recently sold my 10yr old narrowboat, on which I had lived since she was built. In the I main I dealt with Liam,the manager at Narrowboats Ltd, who turned up to value the boat when he said he would
    ( another broker didn't turn up at all!). This was a good start that lead to a fairly problem free sale after about 2 months. Liam himself is an enthusiastic, empathic, and pleasant man and all the
    staff I dealt with were very helpful and good communicators. From my experience I'd be happy to recommend their services to anyone selling a narrowboat.

  • Lynn & Paul (Tuesday, July 19 16 12:57 pm BST)

    Would like to thank Liam for all his help with the purchase of our very first Narrowboat Sycamore which is an ex Hire Baot, which we purchased in December 2014 and having it transported via road to a
    more local place to us, and we didn't have to lift a finger only the phone, he was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process and kept us uptdate every step of the way, it has now
    been successfully converted and refurbished into a lovely home.

  • Andrew (Monday, July 04 16 09:45 am BST)

    A sincere thanks to Liam & Geoff at Narrowboats Ltd for all their support and efficiency in selling my narrowboat Prince Rilian. Bless you for going the extra mile and bringing the sale to a
    happy conclusion.

  • Colin (Wednesday, June 01 16 05:46 pm BST)

  • Mel Godwin and Mike Arnold (Saturday, May 07 16 09:03 am BST)

    Dear Liam, Jeff and John
    My dad and I just wanted to thank you all so much for assisting us with the purchase of Pukeko. It's fair to say, the purchase wasn't without it's challenges but your patience and understanding
    helped us to get there in the end. For this, we are eternally grateful. We'd like also thank you personally, Liam for you time and and understanding, especially for for always being friendly and
    professional during the many phonecalls we made to each other. Jeff and John for taking my dad out on the boat and for providing a first class induction to our new boat. We would highly recommend
    your service to anyone who is wishing to purchase a narrow boat and we wish you all the best for the future. Thanks again, for everything.

  • David Pye (Monday, April 11 16 05:35 pm BST)

    Many thanks to Liam and Geoff for dealing with the sale of my narrowboat.The whole process was dealt with in a professional and efficient manner.I was kept updated on progress regularly and my sale
    was completed in two weeks.Well worth the commission fee for such a fast and hassle free sale.

  • Walter & Carole (Wednesday, April 06 16 07:26 pm BST)

    What a team Liam,Geoff and John,full of confidence and very good at what they do,sold our boat within 3 weeks.Cannot thank them enough,well done lads.

  • Wendy Myers (Monday, April 04 16 12:29 pm BST)

    Really pleased with the very quick sale of our boat - Liam initially viewed and valued her- she was put on the website as we travelled to wincham wharfe which in turn meant that several people were
    interested before we arrived!
    The first person to view the very next morning after our arrival and she was sold - must be the quickest sale ever.
    Many thanks to Liam and the rest of the team for an excellent service

  • Paul houghton (Thursday, March 31 16 11:49 am BST)

    This was our first boat and we came to the idea as complete novices. We had been looking at boats for about 8 months and apart from the fact that we didn't see anything we particularly liked we
    didn't seem to get much in the way of input or interest from the places we went to look. That was until we came to Liam and his team where the situation was completely different. They took a real
    interest in us as customers, listened to what we were looking for, made suggestions and answered all those stupid questions that novices ask with honesty and enthusiasm. They never pushed anything
    and let us progress at our own speed and were always available and ready to respond to queries by email or phone and they guided us through the process very calmly and gently. A great team but the
    star has to be Geoff who obviously has a passion for boats and boating and went out of his way to share his knowledge and experience with us. What a star. We have our first boat now, have undertaken
    a major maiden voyage to get it back home to Lancashire and we are very happy. Very grateful to Liam and the team at narrow boats ltd for helping to make a retirement dream come to life

  • Bob collins (Sunday, March 27 16 07:11 pm BST)

    Narrowboat Tao.
    I would like to say a huge thank you to Liam, Geoff and john for all there help and support in the purchase of Tao, these guys could not have been any more supportive, after my initial viewing we did
    everything else through phone and email up till the day I collected the boat in under a month, even getting me pictures of the boat suspended in the air by a crane thanks Geoff. I'm looking forward
    to my new home on the water thanks to all of you guys.
    Kind Regards Bob.
