It Takes Two No.162

Why design and build a Braidbar boat?
We had owned a share for a number of years and had tried out a cruiser in Holland and a white boat on the Thames before opting for a narrow boat. We had researched numerous narrow boats, both second hand and newly built, before we decided on Braidbar. We had viewed Braidbar at Crick early in the process, a fine traditionally finished boat, proudly shown off by its owner. So Braidbar were always on the shortlist. What finally swung the decision for us was pure chance, n/b Serendipity. We were moored up below Stone locks and a Braidbar boat, on its maiden voyage, moored right behind us.

It must have been the glow from the newly painted bow that distracted me. The owners kindly agreed to show us around. We were very impressed with the finish and light modern feel of the boat. This told us that Braidbar could master both traditional and modern and the owners confirmed that they were thrilled with their boat and the whole build process.
