Welcome to Star Line Boats

We are a small but dedicated team producing top quality steel boats in the town of Nuneaton, Warwickshire. We have easy road access just off the A444 dual carriageway near to the George Eliot Hospital, on Bullring by bridge 20 of the Coventry Canal. Our site has a main building that pre-dates the canal, with three floors housing our offices and chandlery on the ground floor, electrical and wood workshop areas on the first floor, and storage on the top floor. A large attached ground floor shop is used for boatbuilding and painting.

Fitting-out is based in a purpose built steel clad workshop in the yard, together with our craning area and hardstanding storage yard for up to 15 narrowboats. Our site has a frontage of 200m along the Coventry Canal, we have on-line moorings for up to 20 boats, with all waterside boatyard facilities. This includes red diesel, pump-outs, Calor gas, solid fuel, and chandlery.

Our Work


We have been building bespoke narrow boats since 1997, fitting-out since 2001 and started building wide beam boats in 2002. Our latest products include a 60ft x 12ft beam Dutch Luxemotor, and 70ft x 12ft beam double-chined luxury river cruiser. These vessels have been designed by Tony Gallimore with Nick Branson of Branson Design and are available to order (in lengths from 45ft to 70ft) along with our "Measham" design of high quality narrow boats (these are available from 35ft to 72ft). We can advise on the suitability of each type of craft to the cruising area that you are considering, and can advise and help you with the layout and specification of your bespoke craft.

We also offer a wide ranging boat repair service from hull blacking to overplating, running gear repair or replacement, full plan ultrasonic hull thickness surveys, and electrical, plumbing, gas, and heating work, as well as all of the normal boatyard services.
