Luxury Canal Boat Hire – Narrowboat Builders – Marine Repairs
Welcome to Aqua Narrowboats, specialists in luxury 5 star canal boat hire & holidays, narrowboat builders of the highest quality with a marine repairs service offering narrowboat engineering, electrics and refurbishments. A company concentrating on growing British talent to produce beautifully crafted bespoke canal boats by a team of skilled marine engineers and boat builders.
Our luxurious fleet of narrowboats for hire is almost entirely owned by sponsored boat owners who have requested high specification boats for their own personal use, therefore you are able to hire the most beautiful boats on the canals – see narrowboat holiday reviews on our Facebook Page. Based at Mercia Marina on the Trent and Mersey Canal, we have a range of canal networks for you to enjoy your narrowboat holiday including the Four Counties Ring, the Black Country Ring, the Leicester Ring, plus many there and back routes. The canals have many attractions and places to eat along the way making your canal boat hire experience an adventure. Checkout our canal routes page for more details on places to visit.
If you are looking for a new bespoke narrowboat to your exact specification then we are here to make your design a reality. We specialise in a personal service: a custom made bespoke canalboat package, with all costs and optional extras given in your quotation, (basic prices can be found at the ‘new boat sales’ page), to a layout and design of your choice. This enables you to think about your narrowboat design and prioritise features to fit your budget. To view the quality and craftmanship of our bespoke boats look at the gallery page, better still make an appointment to visit us, just call Tel 01283 701041. Our past customers are more than happy to provide references when you are ready to progress with your narrowboat build.
