We offer bottom blacking for narrowboats and wide beams up to 70’. This includes high power jet washing and 2 or 3 coats of your desired coating. Whilst your boat is out of the water we can replace the anodes and do a general check of rudder and stern gear.  We also offer our customers jet washing or hardstanding only if they decide to undertake the blacking.

£6.00 per foot + VAT. Craning takes place on a Wednesday but your boat can be left with us on any day of the week for your convenience. Alternatively, if you would like to Black your boat yourself we offer hard standing (subject to availability) on which you can carry out the work.



Paint & Signwriting

We offer full repaints for narrowboats and canal boats up to 70ft. This can be anything from minor touch-ups to complete repaints. To finish off your new paintwork we can also get your boat sign written, either by traditional hand Signwriter or by stick-on transfer. You send us the design you require and we will quote for either service. All paintwork is priced on a quote by quote basis so please call us for a chat or for a comprehensive quote.


We are able to crane narrowboats and wide beams up to 70ft in length. Craning takes place every Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm.
