Depending on the complexities of the design, on average, an Aqualine canal boat can take around 12 weeks to build. During this time numerous different craftsmen will have applied their individual skills and trades to present a narrowbeam, widebeam or Dutch Barge boat of desirable finish.
The Aqualine teams are made up of a variety of personnel required to construct a boat from scratch and includes qualified welders, carpenters, electricians and fitters. All are highly skilled and have undergone full apprenticeships in their respective craft. This rich resource of skills is one of the main reasons we have chosen to work with these suppliers, who can fulfill our requirements to provide narrowboats, wide beam boats or Dutch Barges of immense quality.
As well as fully trained professionals, modern-day manufacturing techniques also play a pivotal role in the construction of an Aqualine canal boat, be it the use of specialist welding techniques or CNC wood-working technology where appropriate.
This perfect blend of time served tradition and state of the art manufacturing means that with an Aqualine canal boat, be it narrow or wide, or a Dutch Barge, you really do get the best of both worlds.
