From our own experience before you embark on the design process we recommend you are absolutely clear on what your Canal Boat's needs and requirements are. The design process has to be one of the most important, but often overlooked areas of a Canal Boat Building Project. Space is at a premium and therefore clever, practical & refined designs are essential.
With this in mind we encourage you to download, print and complete our FREE 'Requirements Checklist' even if you're clear in your mind on what you are looking for, it can be beneficial to put pen to paper, especially with this prompt sheet designed to ensure you haven't missed or overlooked any important areas.
This requirements list can be a great tool when looking to buy a new or used boat. Why not print off complete and take it directly to a boat brokerage so they know exactly what you are looking or directly to a boat builder so they can provide you with an accurate quotation.
In summary this checklist covers:
Budget, Canal Boat Type & Size Options
Hull & Integral Parts List
230v & 12V Electric Equipment
Plumbing & Heating Considerations
Internal Layout - Fit Out Decisions
If you know of any useful additions for this checklist which could well prove valuable for potential canal boat buyers, new or used, please don't hesitate to jot the details down through the form below. Continuous improvement is a primary focus of ours and any comments are gratefully received.
