Canal boat and Narrowboat specialists ABC Boatbuilding

Bespoke boat building operations are focused at the head office & marina in Alvechurch, on the Worcestershire border and beside the Birmingham & Worcester Canal.

They have been hand building high quality steel narrrowboats for over 30 years for both the private and hire trade.

Their qualified team of craftsmen build for the renowned ABC Boat Hire fleet, also maintaining private craft from servicing and repair to complete build and fit-out.


They provide a full design and build service for shells, sailaways or completed boats. All boats will comply with the European RCD and be built under a British Marine Federation contract.

Further boat building operations are located at their Hilperton Marina site, with various other boat yards around the country offering hull fit-outs as part of their range of marina services.
