About us

Living life to the full is most people's dream and owning a boat and spending time on the water can be a dream come true, it has never been easier to own a boat of your dreams, custom made and at the right price.

Based at Trent Lock in Derbyshire, Cherilton Narrowboats has Graham Ford at the helm. Graham is a time served, City and Guild qualified, engineer. For the past 27 years, he has also been designing and making furniture. Graham brings his furniture-making skills to his boatbuilding.

Graham has, for many years, specialised in producing bespoke furniture in oak and various other timber types, making furniture for bedrooms and kitchens.

Graham's expertise and knowledge are reflected in his fitted narrowboats, he crafts his furniture to fit within the confines of a narrowboat, giving the impression of space, whilst maximising storage opportunities.

Graham works from his purpose-built, covered workshop and dry dock, enabling him to offer a well-equipped one-stop shop for all of your needs. Graham has always painted his bespoke built narrowboats and is pleased to be able to offer his boat painting skills and services to the general public. Give us a call for a quote.
