Hull Delivery

Today was the day, and what a beautiful one. The narrowboat and crane turned up at the yard on time, all hands were on deck to ensure everything went smoothly and the sun was shining with not a cloud in the sky.

Beautifully crafted

I love visiting Jonathan Wilson's boat yard for two reasons. Firstly, there is nothing better than entering a world where craft and skill are paramount. Premium steel, welding sparks, beautifully crafted hulls and good old fashioned hard graft, make the workshop feel and smell great.

Secondly I get to see the latest addition to our hire fleet in progress.

Not long now!

The hull for our new narrowboat is going to be delivered this week. lt is a Tyler Wilson, the best money can buy. We have worked closely with the legend that is Jonathan Wilson to create a beautiful design. So you can probably imagine, I was beyond excitement yesterday, to visit the boat yard and get the first glimpse of the boat in progress.
