Boat Paintwork

For topside repaints narrowboats are usually slipped and pulled into our undercover paint dock. Dave, our resident full time painter then gets to work, usually 7 days a week until near completion. A minimum of 3 weeks is usually required for a complete repaint, boats are sometimes finished off back in the water in our undercover wet dock.

We offer a good quality result at a very competitive price, using Craftmaster Coach Enamels by default. Examples of our work can be seen on boats moored here at Sileby Mill. Quotes and time schedules are realistic and adhered to.

Signwriting, Scrollwork and Artwork

Any signwriting, scrollwork and artwork you require is done by the highly talented and experienced ‘Letterknight’, examples of his fabulous work can be seen on his website.

We also welcome smaller jobs, if you just need your roof or other bits doing we can usually help
