Charnwood Hobbit - the paintwork is almost complete!

19th April 2024

The exterior paintwork on our all electric 'Charnwood Hobbit' is almost complete, and now sporting the popular colour combination of greys and black, is looking very smart indeed!

Jon, you've done an excellent job!!

Our Charnwood Hobbit is currently for sale and will be sold at the Crick Boat Show, if not before.

With an inviting season of cruising beckoning, and the chance to jump our boatbuilding diary, who wouldn't be tempted!?

If you would like to see this cheeky little narrowboat before Crick, why not have a day off and pop along to the Ovation open day on 4th May!?

Not only can you view the Hobbit but take a sneak preview of the Charnwood Edge as well as our project boat, 'Bliss'!

We're not far from the East Midlands Airport - being just off junction 24 of the M1 - and if you follow the signs for the East Midlands Parkway and Redhill Marina, you can't miss us!

For further details of our 42ft 'Charnwood Hobbit', 60ft 'Charnwood Edge' and 70ft project boat 'Bliss', contact Chris Williams direct on 07963 974 793 or email
