Where possible, we encourage you to join us for the launch of your new narrowboat. Take this opportunity to watch your dream take to the water for the first time and feel the pride and excitement that comes with this momentous occasion.
Unlike other builders, all of our boats are launched and thoroughly tested in the water here at the marina before handover so that you can rest assured you're getting the best. On the day of handover, we'll be alongside you the whole way, walking you through the boat step by step so that you're confident with all the systems and happily answer any questions you might have.
At Knights, our commitment to our customers doesn't end once the sale is complete. We offer a 12-month warranty on all of our boats, and our team is always here to support our customers - even after they've had their boats for years. If you have an older boat and need assistance, we're happy to help. At Knights, we are dedicated to providing top-notch after-sales support.
