Braidbar Boats

it's better to travel than arrive



Integrity No. 153

Having hired narrow boats as a family from the early 60's and parents having two custom built boats during their retirement (I designed the second one), I knew when it was possible and practical we too would seek to have a custom built boat. However as a very experienced canal user, professional design engineer with a generally discerning and exacting nature I was going to have to be very careful in the choice of builder.

The boat was to be a fairly complex one with quiet hydraulic drives, traditional features and lots of woodwork. The short list was indeed a short one but it was Braidbar's recent build history that really stood out suggesting here was a company capable of delivering the engineering required. Reviews and a visit to the Crick boat show where an opportunity to see a Braidbar boat and meet the principals Peter and Susan sealed the deal with an order placed at the show.
