New and Used Boat Company

New and Used Boat Company

Chris Hill formed the company in 2000, after a decade of experience in the boat-building industry.  His aim was to provide high quality yet affordable vessels that were suitable for newcomers and those with long experience of the waterways alike.  It’s a ‘one-stop shop’ concept that means we offer something for everyone, whatever type of boat you are looking for and whatever your budget.

Over the years we’ve expanded and refined the range of new boats and now offer a fantastic choice of narrowboats, wide beam boats and Dutch Barges in both new and used boat options.  We have conveniently located marinas at Droitwich and Willington, where you can spend time on board deciding upon the right boat for you, with the assistance of our friendly and knowledgeable staff.  And when you buy a new boat from us we provide a comprehensive handover and a fantastic after-sales service backed up by experienced engineers.

What makes The New & Used Boat Co unique is the emphasis on tailoring everything – from the boats themselves to the financial arrangements – around the needs of the customer.  Whether you are buying a holiday boat or looking for a floating home, you’ll find every requirement catered for.

With a proven approach that has resulted in national awards, great press reviews and fantastic customer feedback, The New & Used Boat Co is the company that has made boat-buying a pleasure in itself.
