Here at Weltonfield we have been building boats for over 30 years and have helped many customers to realise their dreams. In total we have built nearly 70 narrowboats and have fitted out a number of wide beam boats as well.

Our aim has never been mass production, with each one of our boats being individually tailored to the customer’s needs. We have built boats of all different lengths from 40’ to 70’ and from the traditional boat with a Gardner Engine in a central engine room to a number of ultra-modern boats.

Above all we aim to provide the customer with a boat that will give many years of service at a realistic price. Whether you know exactly what you want, or whether you need to be guided through the many possibilities and pitfalls, we will help you all the way.

If you would like to find out more, give us a call and come and visit our canal side building facility, where we can show you a number of boats that we have built.
