Welcome to the website for UK working boats here you will find details the lists of ex-working boats we have compiled, do feel free to copy this information but please give us a link back for it. This information has been compiled from many sources but Roger Fullers Website deserves special mention and is well worth a visit by anyone with an interest in Narrow boats new and old!

The headers to our information lists are reproduced with the kind permission of Roger.

We are in the process of compiling a list of the early hire boat fleets if you have any information please post it on our email address.

While every effort is made to keep the lists as up to date and as accurate as possible we know there are errors in the site, if you spot one please feel free to drop us a message pointing it out and offering corrected information. Any errors are the responsibility of the author of this site and not of any individual contributor.
