Here at XR&D we can build narrow boats to any length or style and to whatever guage of steel the customer requires.
All our narrow boats are constructed from EN43A standard, de-coiled steel, which reduces the likelihood of ripples.
Standard specification 10:6:4 is used right the way through - hull joins are welded on both sides.
