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.

There's still some work to be done but delivery is imminent.

Narrowboat stern in progress

The stern area is still in progress, we have gone for a slightly different type of back deck, allowing for the most sociable cruising area. I will post more pictures tomorrow, when I visit to see the completed back deck before it is primed and delivered.

Once it is in our boat yard, we have a lot of work ahead of us in order to fit it out in record time. This narrowboat will be our new hire boat and although we intend to make it fit for a king, we also want to get it on the water ready for hire by the Summer.
