AN INTRODUCTION TO WIDE BEAM BARGES:

We have been building wide beam boats for mainland
Europe, the UK and Ireland since 1979 and can offer a
whole range, some seagoing Category C and B
(RCD),some for inland use only (Category D RCD).



You need the boat to be strong - ours are properly
engineered & and designed with more than adequate
internal framing. Many boats you will be offered fall
down in this area, for example even a 54' x 13' wide
beam barge will weigh in the region of 30 tonnes.
Bring that into a quayside or lockside and you
need a strong hull to give the boat a chance.
Similarly pick it up with a crane or take the
seagoing version to sea, and the forces
exerted on the hull are tremendous.

We can also offer, for inland use, the D Category Explorer
in a variety of sizes, most popular is 45' x 11'8" - an
ideal liveaboard whiich shows what can be achieved
by good design to the interior, based on our
wealth of practical experience.
