FREE Design Consultations

Prior to the consultation we encourage you to create a list of questions and/or areas you would like further advice & guidance on, so right from the off you’ll be developing your knowledge and understanding, which all plays a key role in the design process. Our aim during the consultation will be to fully understand what and how you’re proposing to use your canal boat to help create and prioritise a list of potential on-board equipment and extras which will benefit you the most and give optimum value for money.

Post-consultation we’ll create and provide you with a detailed quotation and proposed delivery date. Included within the quotation will be a price break down of all the on-board equipment and potential extras to help you with the decision making process.
