The Floating Boatyard offer maintenance, repairs and painting for canal boats and narrowboat bilges on the inland waterways and canals in the UK.

When it comes to stoves and heating, most canal boat and narrowboat users go for multi fuel stoves. They require the user to be educated in their correct use. Once the user is confident in their operation, multi-fuel stoves are one of the most reliable heating systems available for boats in the UK. Other systems include engine calorifiers with radiators and diesel heater systems.
