Trent Lock Dry Dock.

We have been based at Trent Lock Dry Dock since 2018  it's an amazing place to work from, the opportunity arose for us to take over the new workshop located on the Erewash Canal, the Trent Lock Dry Dock. The dry dock is a water-based workshop which has been on the Erewash for centuries and will comfortably accommodate widebeams, barges and narrowboats up to 70' in length.


We intend to continue building our bespoke boats at Shardlow Marina where we have been based for the passed 10 years, whilst the undercover dry dock will allow us to put more focus on quality boat painting.

The dock is available for hire for DIY use or we can provide a complete blacking service for you, prices start at £10 per foot for bitumious blacking. 

The dry dock is able to take boats of up to 14ft x 72ft or two narrowboats side by side.

As the dock is undercover topside repairs and maintenance can be carried out whatever the weather.


We can also undertake hull blackings, grit blasting and 2 pack coatings.
