Hello, I’m Malcolm and live aboard a narrow boat called Still Magic, currently cruising through the London waterways. Living on a house boat is a great way of life,  however as we all know boating life is not always a smooth cruise with multiple engine, plumbing and hull maintenance issues to stay on top of. Personally, I found it a steep learning curve to start with and really struggled to find good tradesmen to help me with various issues, which also appears to be the case for numerous boaters.

Boaters Yard has been developed with the view of introducing a collaborative and transparent platform for fellow boaters to connect with service providers and review each other’s experiences, so we can all stay afloat with confidence.

Our aim is also to help boat tradesmen and companies develop their reputation and customer base within the boating community, through connecting them with jobs aligned to their specialisms.

As we all know, no two boats are ever quite the same!
