About Us

A Professional, friendly service from a quality Canal Boat builder that you can trust.

The Northwich Boat Company was founded in 2004, and since then we’ve built and sold over 200 boats.

From our factory in the Czech Republic, we specialise in bringing you outstanding quality narrow, wide beam and barge style boats at very competitive prices. We believe that none of our competitors can match our unique combination of quality finish and value prices.

Our range of boats spans sprayfoam sailaway narrowboats all the way through to fully fitted sea going Dutch Barges.

We appreciate that purchasing a boat is likely to be one of the biggest commitments that you will ever make. We understand that the various choices that you need to make can be potentially confusing and stressful. That why we provide helpful advice and guidance from planning what options to pick with your boat through to sailing away in your finished boat. And with more than 200 boats designed and built to date, you know that you are in good hands.

Here are two comments that customers have said to us recently:

“The advice and guidance you’ve given me so far has been second to none.
It’s really helped me make the right decisions and realise what’s important to me.
I’m very excited about picking up my boat and I know I’m in safe hands with you”


“It is interesting to look back at previous specifications and boats that we have looked at. While many of the boats that we saw were high on gloss and glamour, the Anderton 57 has a quiet air of understated quality and uncluttered spaciousness. Knowing what we now do about what goes on under the skin, we have chosen a more honest boat, whose worth and many extras are invested where we believe they matter most.”

We urge you to come and meet with us before you make your commitment to buy. And you’re welcome to visit as many times as you like during the building of your boat.
