A choice of three great
Sailaway boats from the
one name you can rely on

Whilst we don’t build any boat ourselves you can rest assured that we have used all our many years experience and influence, working closely with our chosen manufacturer, to help develop a selection of Sailaway boats that offer the best possible start.

Deciding on a Sailway project is an exciting choice as you to get to build a boat that is purely engineered to your tastes and exact requirements. However even for the competent DIY’er it can be quite a challenge and a commitment. So we wanted to make sure we had a choice of boats that would complement your skill level exactly. But please don’t make a decision on anything before talking it through with us fi rst. It could just save you a lot of unnecessary pain further on down the line.

All our Sailaway canal boats share the same hull specification and as standard include a comprehensive list of integral parts.

Sailaway Basic

Narrowbeam and widebeam

As the name implies even with our Sailaway Basic you’ll be able to sailaway as the propulsion system is fully installed. The hull comes with many integral parts as standard including mushroom vents, windows, doors, ballast, sub floors and a sealing coat of primer.

The Sailaway Basic Range of Narrowboats & Widebeams put you in full control of the 12v and 240v electrics, the plumbing / heating and lining/trimming. If you are considering this type of sailaway all we’ll be looking for from you is the location of the doors, mushroom vents and windows.

All our Sailaway canal boats go through to our dedicated designer who is always more than happy to cast an eye over your design concept before producing you a bespoke manufactured drawing set for approval pre-manufacture.

VAT FREE – Could you be eligible for a VAT exempt canal boat?

Widebeam vessels of a certain size may qualify for zero rate VAT. Qualifying a boat to be VAT exempt is a complicated process and you have to adhere to strict HM Customs & Excise rulings.
Incorrectly specifying a boat as VAT exempt can prove very costly further on down the line. With The New & Used Boat Co. you can have complete peace of mind as we’ve done all the hard work for you, in terms of research and hard work, to ensure you are protected. For example all our VAT exempt boats can be supplied with a Tonnage Certificate issued by an Approved Tonnage Surveyor which will legally prove that you have a qualifying boat. At The New & Used Boat Co. we turn VAT Free into Worry Free.
