Twyford Wharf Narrow Boats to build new 40ft Day/Overnight boat on their slipway

Twyford Wharf Narrow Boats will start a new build on their slipway at Twyford Wharf on Monday 15th May.  This is a really exciting venture!  Having a boat build on your own doorstep.  The shell is expected to be completed by the end of July with all other fitting out completed by end of December 2016.

The boat will be named ‘Comet’ after ‘Chieftain’ and ‘Conqueror’ – all British Army battle tanks.

Comet will have overnight accommodation for 4 – one double and two camp beds- shower, pump out loo, galley and a great viewing area at the bow.  Steve Emery is building Comet and Colin will be his ‘laborer’.  Engine will be supplied by Canaline ( 32hp) with all interior equipment being of a very high specification.

Watch this space for regular updates and photos as we progress to the completed boat.
