Welcome to Live the Dream Narrowboats based in the picturesque village of Fradley, on the popular Trent and Mersey Canal near Lichfield in the West Midlands. We specialise in building bespoke narrowboats,  which are available from sailaway specification or full build.

Most of our customers dream of living aboard their narrowboat full time and want to escape the rat race to enjoy a quieter, more leisurely pace of life. Our full build narrowboats come with a high specification containing just about everything you would need to comfortably enjoy life on the water but we offer a number of upgrades to the standard specification so you can really personalise your boat. We are also seeing a lot of young people who are looking for an alternative to the housing market and like the freedom living on a canal boat can offer. With the average house price in the UK being £205,000 and forty year mortgages becoming increasingly common, we believe that making a boat your home makes sense economically as well as emotionally.

Whatever your ideas, we offer the flexibility of a good quality, high specification narrowboat that can be tailored to your individual needs and budget and as we always have a build in progress you are welcome to come and meet us we will be delighted to show you around.
