Narrowboat Overplating and Repair Facilities at Whilton Marina

We have all the facilities required to enable us to carry out most narrowboat engineering and repair work on site.

Many older boats can be given a new lease of life if after a survey the hull is found to have “pitted”

We now have a new Narrowboat refurbishment building which is capable of holding three 70ft narrowboats simultaneously for repairs and maintenance works under cover and out of the water.
We also have a  Wise 40 tonne hoist to lift and transport the narrow boats to the new refurbishment workshop, which, along with our lifting wharf, two slipways, wet dock and dry dock mean we are fully equipped to undertake any maintenance work required to the narrowboats we sell.

We have a GAS SAFE registered gas fitter who visits the site once a week to ensure all our gas work is compliant with the latest Safety Standards.

We can also undertake hull blackings on narrowboats and widebeamed boats, to find out more look at our blacking page.
