Since 2003, we've been building and repairing traditional, cruiser and semi-trad narrowboat shells, up to sixty-five feet in length. Whether you're shopping around or looking to refurbish your current boat, you can cruise away with J.D. Narrowboats. We are the experts in bespoke narrowboat fitouts and sailaway specialists to the customer's exact requirements. We also undertake work on narrowboat widebeam, repaints and refits or part fits where required.

Having the advantage of our own slipway we can black the hulls for our customers and carry out any repairs required on site.

We can also arrange boat safety repairs so that it meets the current legislative requirements.

All work is completed on site so that the boat never leaves our premises.

Upon completion, each narrowboat shell is inspected by an Inland Navigation Surveyor and issued with a Quality of Work Certificate – guaranteeing performance, comfort and a long water life. Your new shell will then be delivered, primed and blacked, to a boatyard of your choice.
