About Ovation Boats

We are small personal team of professional boatbuilders with a range of skills from apprentice to experienced.

Offering a broad spectrum of ‘Charnwood’ fully fitted steel boats from the all-electric short narrowboat ‘Charnwood Hobbit’ to the Dutch barge style ‘Charnwood Euro’.

The ‘Charnwood Edge’ on spec narrowboat and ‘Charnwood Choice’, built to your specification, remain ever popular.

Collectively, and with many years’ experience both at a personal and professional level, we understand what works well and what makes for a good boating experience.
