At Andicraft Fabrications we build great quality, affordable narrowboats & widebeams- see our Gallery page for examples. This month’s example is a great value 57′ narrowboat currently being completed to sail-away stage, ready for the new owner to fit out to their own tastes and requirements.

What exactly is a sail-away though? For most shell builders selling sail-aways this means a bare shell with an engine fitted, allowing you to motor away and complete the remainder of the build yourself. At Andicraft, because we have over 30 years experience in building boats to all stages of completion, you can make your own decision as to how much work you’re prepared to take on.

This month’s build is a perfect case in point – we’re completing all the interior panelling and first-fit electrics leaving just the installation of kitchen and bathroom together with decorating to the new owner. This means all the potentially daunting stuff is done for you and what’s left is well within the capabilities of a competent DIYer.


One of the longest established boatbuilders in the country, we build bespoke narrowboats, widebeams and dutch barges to customer’s exacting requirements at the keenest of prices.
