Photo collections of each of our boats

Mordiford Dragon is our latest Diesel/Electric Hybrid build. A 60 foot Tyler Wilson hull with a spacious semi-cruiser stern and a reverse lay out fit-out, built for Rob & Karen.

Oyster Moon is a 58'6" semi-traditional narrow boat with a reverse layout, a Beta 43 HP Greenline engine, a Vetus Brushless Bow Thruster and 10 roof mounted semi-flexible solar panels.

Paintbrush is a 58’6” Diesel/Electric Hybrid, which we actually completed in February 2020. Unfortunately, due to the global pandemic situation, Matt & Toy Hoff (the owners, who live in California) were unable to come over from the States to start their cruising as planned. As soon as travel restrictions are eased, they will be over to test the special features on their new boat. Specifically (1) the Cinderella incinerator toilet (electric version), and (2) the bow & stern brushless thrusters – meaning they can parallel park! Paintbrush also features our duplex dinette for maximum flexibility and convenience when their family visit.

Adventure is the first wide-beam boat we have built (10ft wide x 54ft in length). She was built as a day trip boat for the Cotswold Canals Trust and truly is all-electric. Propulsion and water/space heating are all electric powered – via a massive bank of superior lead carbon batteries (1000Ah), a 5kVA inverter/charger, and over 2kW of solar panels on the large roof area. Propulsion is via a Lynch Swordfish 16 Marine Drive System which features 2 x 8kW motors. At the bow there is a Vetus brushless bow thruster, plus a large wheelchair platform lift. Completed in December 2019, unfortunately the COVID-19 situation has delayed the official launch of the boat, which was due to take place in April 20.
