Build finished!

We visited our boat builder today and watched Steel Away being brought out from the fit out shop into the yard.

The build is finished and we will stay on board over this coming weekend to try out all systems etc before bringing her to the Thames for launch at the end of March.

Here is a 3 minute video showing the build progress. 21 weeks from start to finish.   I’d say that is pretty impressive.

    1. Thanks for your kind comments James and Julie. We enjoyed visiting Abingdon when we did the “Grand Ring” on our narrowboat about three years ago and will certainly visit again in due course. We hope to meet you then, and good luck with your sale!
      David & Angie
