Crick 2024 - almost ready to GO!

19th April 2024

Benjamin Franklin once said, 'if you want something done, ask a busy person!'

The logic is that busy people are better able to manage their time, are more effective in weighing up how long a task will take and the better they become at getting things done because they don't waste time.

This can certainly be said about the Ovation Team but in addition, each of our Team are passionate about narrowboats, love what they do and have a sense of pride in every boat they build!

With two boats being taken to the Crick Boat Show in May, the pressure has certainly been 'ON', but for the Ovation Team every day is another day to enjoy what they do!

Crick is a mere 5 weeks away now, but not content with that date in the diary, the Ovation Team are having an Open Day at Redhill Marina on 4th May! 

So, why not pop along to our workshop for a sneak preview of the boats we have on offer!? You too could soon be escaping everyday pressures by joining our 'Ovation Family', retaking control of your life again, and having some much needed fun in the process!

We currently have three boats for immediate sale: a 42ft all electric Charnwood Hobbit with semi cruiser stern,  70ft project boat (Bliss) with traditional stern, and a 60ft Charnwood Edge with semi cruiser stern - including cratch cover & pram cover.

For further details about our Open Day or any of our boats, whether for sale or commission build, please contact Chris Williams on 07963 974 793 or email
