A new generation and creating memories!

5th February 2024

As we get older, life always seems to get in the way of having fun, but at Ovation Boats not only do we build boats, we build memories too!

Whenever the opportunity arises Chris Williams and Julia will take their 40ft traditional narrrowboat, 'Florrie', out for a spin, and if the kids & grandkids want to come along too then so much the better!

Chris, Ayla and Jackie

Chris's love for narrowboats and the UK canal system began as a London schoolboy, when an inspirational teacher took a group of lads out on a canal boat...........Chris never looked back!

For the the grandchildren though, their first experiences of boating started much younger, and on each subsequent trip, the memories grow!

Steady as she goes
Ayla is learning fast

With some basic instruction under her belt, 10 year old Ayla was soon confidently steering 'Florrie' towards The Wharf Inn for Sunday lunch, followed by a cuppa from 'Florrie's' side doors before heading back to the mooring!

Anyone for tea??

Could there be a better way to share family time and build memories!?

If you would like to create memories with your own family, and feel a smaller boat would be ideal for you, why not give Chris Williams a ring on 07963974793 and enquire about our Charnwood Hobbit range (27 - 42ft) or email chris@ovationboats.co.uk
