Sign Writing

The art and design of Signwriting your narrowboat is something that is often deeply personal to each person, either encapsulating a wonderful memory, as a tribute or just as fun witticism or nod to the past. Whatever your desires it often completes a boat and we are happy to discuss your commissions and individual specification with you.

Full Boat Painting

Every boat started life as “show-room” new!  There’s no reason why your boat can’t be restored to it’s former glory or even receive a whole new look more to your liking.  When repainting a boat we take it back to metal and then build up with multiple coats of paint, finishing with designs of your choice such as coach lines, sign writing of any design you wish.
