We act as brokers for a number of builders of new boats. As such we regularly have on our brokerage list new boats that have been built ‘on spec’ – as opposed to newly built ‘bespoke’ boats that have been completed to a customer’s order.
‘Spec boats’ are normally built to the builder’s own specification and to his own agenda. Consequently they are often sold at prices well below the bespoke boat level and often to a similar quality. These boats have for years been seen as an excellent way of acquiring a new boat at the best value. New boats are sold with full warranty and the correct certification.
Cruiser style narrowboat has a large open cockpit at the stern, below which is the engine.
