Wincham Boat Services

Wincham Wharf has been a busy boat yard since 1777 and it still is to this day. As well as boat sales we have a wide range of services on site. Below are some of the more popular services we offer but if you require any work carrying out on your narrowboat, widebeam or cruiser give us a call for a competitive quote.


We offer bottom blacking for narrowboats 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.

To allow for bad weather we usually like to have the boat out for 1 week. 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 painting services for boats up to 70ft.

This can be anything from minor touch ups to complete repaints. All paint work is priced on a quote by quote basis so please call us for a chat or for a comprehensive quote.

To finish off your new paint work we can also get your boat signwritten, either by traditional hand Signwriter or by stick on transfer. You send us the design you require and we will quote for either service.


We are able to crane narrowboats up to 70ft in length. Craning takes place every Wednesday.

Marine Work & Engineering

We have several contractors on site that enable to us to take on any amount of engineering or maintenance work to your boat.
