How we build our boats

Cambrian Cruisers

We are incredibly proud to say that all our hire boats are built here at Cambrian Cruisers. We are committed to the whole process, from the initial design, layout and dimensions, negotiating the delivery of the hull, to the finer details such as choice of splashbacks and upholstery. We take great care, many hours of deliberating, channelling ideas and learning from our mistakes.

Our photos will give you a small insight into the lengthy process involved and sometimes unsavoury working conditions. We are often joined by a whole host of inquisitive animals such as brazen otters, ducks, swans, kingfishers and also the pesky mink! 

Every winter all our boats must be sanded down, repainted and revarnished. We also carry out thorough engine checks, as well as cleaning out and repainting the engine bays. The inevitable damages have to be repaired or replaced. The upholstery and soft furnishings are washed and scrubbed until spotless and our amazing cleaners make sure each and every boat is ‘shipshape’ and ready for the season ahead. 

We want to ensure you that we go above and beyond to make sure our hire boats surpass expectations and your holiday on the beautiful Mon & Brec Canal is thoroughly enjoyable.
