NB Betty receives some press coverage in August's waterways magazines.

She has a brief review in Canal Boat magazine:

Surely the most eye‐catching boat at the show.

The shell is by Mel Davis and looks fantastic, with fine shapes and smooth finishes.

The 5–paragraph article is on page 42.

There is more coverage in Waterways World with a 3–paragraph article on page 24:

… a very distinctive and traditional craft.

Pictures of NB Betty under construction are in the gallery.

It was great as always to see many old and potential new customers at the show. Our exhibit NB Betty was second favourite boat in show — a great result considering her radical design and fitout. Congratulations to Boating Leisure Services on their win.

If we have promised to be in touch then you'll be hearing from us in the next week or so.

If you are interested in purchasing a new hull, please give us a call to come and see the boats we have in build and in storage. Currently there two to look over. Weekends are not a problem, but do ring first so we can have the kettle on! We look forward to seeing you.
