We at Collingwood are one of the few companies that construct canal boats from scratch. We build all our own shells. We then fully insulate them prior to lining the walls and ceilings whilst installing all your electrical wiring be it 12 volt or 240 volt. We also take care of all your plumbing needs from water for the bathrooms, central heating, waste tanks and plumbing for any of your gas requirements such as oven and hobs. Of course, we also fit all required tanks for fuel, fresh water or waste water. We then fit engines, generators and battery banks together with control panels for all the workings of your vessel. Should you wish us to fully fit your dream, we undertake all manufacture and fitting of kitchen or galley, bedroom and bathroom furniture together with all partitions required within the vessel to create your living space. Needless to say, we will fit out your bathroom or shower room together with wash basins and sanitary. Should a wood or coal burning stove be required then we would fit it for you. Should bow or stern canopies be required then your wish would be our command. We will then paint your vessel to a high standard and to a paint scheme of your choice using the following colours:
