We have recently taken over the site opposite the CRT repair yard in Northwich on the River Weaver. It has been unused for a number of years but houses a slipway, drydock and wet dock - all of which we have been busy refurbishing over the past few months. We are aiming to improve the services and facilities offered to boaters in the North West and hope to encourage more vessels (of all types) onto the River Weaver.
The 120ft x 22ft drydock is available for DIY and serviced dockings, as well as any hull repairs. The bostocks are a good height giving excellent access to the base plates for blacking.

Our fully covered wet dock/paint shed is 80ft x 18ft and is currently undergoing refurbishment. The heated wet dock has a removable pontoon down the middle allowing us to accommodate 2 narrowboats or a wide beam. The wet dock will be available for DIY hire and we currently have a business opportunity for a professional boat painter to take on the rent of one half of the wet dock. If you're interested or know of anyone who might be, please do get in touch.
