Overwater Boats is based near Thursby in Northern Cumbria, just outside the Lake District National Park. We offer: secure boat storage; bespoke boat building, refurbishment and repair; and boat building courses. Located in a former stable block which has been updated with new power, lighting and alarm systems we have a large versitile space ideally suited for boat building, courses and boat storage.
We have winter storage space for about 20 boats, and a smaller amount of space for storage at other times of the year. For more information please Contact Us or visit the Boat Storage page.
Always wanted to build your own boat but lack the space or don't know how to get started? Come on one of our boat building courses and learn on the job with expert tuition, and leave with your own boat at the end of the course. We offer a range of courses including: canoe building, coracle building, sea kayak building, and paddle making. For more information please visit the Boat Building Courses page.
We offer bespoke boat building and repair and restoration services. Recent commissions include a wooden canoe, repairs to 3 GRP racing kayaks, and restoration work on Ruadh, a David Boyd Piper Class dayboat. For more information please Contact Us or visit the Boat Building page.
We regularly update our Projects page with information including pictures of recent commissions.
