Build Specification

Our preferred hull and superstructure supplier is Stourport Canal Craft, who provide us with a steel hull and superstructure to your preference. 

Many customers opt for bottom 80mm, sides 60mm, cabin sides and top 40mm; but should you be based on a shallow canal and so want a thicker bottom then we can oblige accordingly.

Stourport Canal Craft provide a modern looking hull and superstructure that meets with your preferred criteria of cruiser, semi-trad’ or traditional style.  However should you prefer a more traditional style of hull, perhaps based on an old working boat or tug shape, then we can source this from specialist builders.

You choose your preferred window type and style based on your cruising/live-aboard needs.  Our standard window size is 36" or 15" for a porthole; though alternative styles are not a problem.  Indeed 18" portholes are becoming a very popular choice.

Double glazed units and/or units with top hoppers are also available.

Most customers opt for a combined action of windows and portholes; the most popular supplier being Worcester Windows because they feature a complete glass panel to let in maximum light, which tilts to provide some fresh air or can be completely removed on a very hot day.

The glass panels can also be replaced by steel if the boat is being left in a vulnerable area.

Should you want a more traditional looking window, then again we can work with you to source the window that meets with the vision you are seeking.

Window Coverings
On the inside customers opt for a wide selection of coverings.

Whilst for windows Roman blinds are a popular choice, for portholes customers typically select bungs or our wooden shutters.
