S M Hudson Boatbuilders is an award-winning builder of Josher-styled, traditional narrowboats.

From the construction of the steel shell to the delivery of the finished boat, all work is carried out by skilled craftsmen in our workshops at Glascote Basin.

We are probably best known for our traditionally-styled boats with engine room forward of a boatman's cabin, but we are equally happy to fit a modern Beta 43 engine in the stern while keeping our traditional look outside.

Although we have various price levels for fully-fitted boats, the price reflects the amount of detail and level of specification, not the quality of our workmanship or the materials we use, both of which are consistent throughout our boats.

If you would like to visit us at Tamworth to see work in progress and discuss your new boat, please contact us to arrange an appointment.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our web site which contains details of our boat specifications, pricing and terms of sale as well as photographs of boats in various stages of construction.
