Solar Electric Boats For
The Inland Waterways

Modern Technology

There’s nothing new about electric boats

Electric boats are almost maintenance free, they’re reliable and easy to operate. In fact The Immisch Electric Launch Co. had a fleet of 60 of them on The Thames in 1898.

The development of the combustion engine at the turn of the century and the effects of the First World War proved the death knell for electric propulsion – and steam.

However, the tide is turning back in favour of electric boats with improvements in battery technology and a need to reduce emissions. In truth, electric motors really suit narrowboats and river boats.

In nature

Enjoy the inland waterways

We want you to feel the joy of motoring along in near silence and fully present to the natural world; birdsong, buzzing insects and the ripple of the water in the knowledge that you are not costing you or the earth anything.

People respond to nature and natural products. Go below into the cabin. Here the majority of timber used is reclaimed, often hundreds of years old.

That said, there is nothing old fashioned about our design. It’s fresh and every thought is given to the feeling of space, we make contemporary narrowboats.

Leading the way

Thinking of the future, enjoying the present

“For many people a day’s boating would start in a cloud of exhaust smoke as a poorly maintained and cold diesel engine coughs into life.

There’s a cost to the environment. Simply put, it’s not fair to the wildlife that depend on clean rivers and canals. Electrical power is a good alternative however, this power is not limitless which is why we aim to build efficient  electrical systems that best use the power available.”
