Steel Boat Kits

If you have ever wished to take on the project of building your dream boat from the very ground up, this is the perfect opportunity. Start with a Steel Boat Kit.


What: Our steel boat kits are designed by our own qualified experienced staff, using the very latest 3D CAD technology.

This ensures, that every part is professionally and accurately cut using the latest C.N.C. steel cutting equipment before it’s delivered to your address.

How: We make sure all the parts are numbered, cut to tolerance and ready for delivery. A big part of the prep work is already done, ready for you to start the build.

By following our detailed instructions, your boat will start to take shape from the base plate up, adding one part at a time.


Because of this you will benefit from more efficiency overall the building process.

Why NBC: We have years of experience in the boating industry.

With expert CAD designers directly involved every day in the business, designing shells and full interior fit-outs.

A huge amount of work has been put into this kit, every single part has been cut to the correct size and shape and matches its neighbour part exactly, meaning you can start from the baseplate up, one part at a time giving you a huge advantage when purchasing a steel boat kit from Nottingham Boat Co.
