The Great British Waterways are the perfect escape from the humdrum of everyday life all year round. Once used to ship raw materials from city to city during the Industrial Revolution, the canals have become the perfect getaway for people wanting to relax and take life at a slower, steadier pace; with some even taking to the water to live full time.


Whatever your reasons for wanting to experience the waterways, Collingwood offer a wealth of experience when it comes to designing and building canal boats. Our aim is relatively simple, to build quality vessels that enhance our customers experience of life on the canals, whether as a form of recreation or as a way of life.

With that said, you’ll be wanting to know where your new Collingwood boat can take you, and there is plenty of the country to explore for both owners of wide-beam and narrow beam boats.
