Albert Ross Review:

“Regardless of your budget, commissioning a new boat is a big financial commitment and as such it can be a bit of a leap of faith when deciding on whom to build it for you. Fortunately, we needn’t have worried when we instructed Ashley and Martin of Stone Bespoke Narrowboats and Nick of Nick Thorpe boat building. The whole process from the laying of the first sheet of steel base plate to the final lick of paint was a genuinely pleasurable experience. The enthusiasm and ‘can do’ attitude from this professional team is a joy to behold. We had owned our previous boat for 20 years and as such had a good idea of what we wanted from the new one however it was through the vast experience of the team that resulted in our dreams being realised. Nothing was too much trouble and we ended up with a much admired boat.”

Mac Review:

“The whole process of working with Ashley, Martin and Nick has been very enjoyable.As a team they have listened to my requirements and worked collaboratively to find innovative solutions. Most importantly they were able to deliver for my required budget and on time. just honest conversation – often on a daily basis it was never too much or too little. Externally I have a shell which looks great and performs like a dream. Ashley is a genius when it comes to carpentry and together we have created a boat that feels much bigger inside than her 45’. MAC puts a big smile on my face. Thank you Stone Bespoke Narrowboats. I’m looking forward to many years of happy cruising.”
