Boat Fit Europe is an English company owned by Paul Croly. He has been a joiner and boat fitter for 25 years and boats have formed a significant part of his working life. During this time he has been involved in building or restoring a wide range of craft from luxury yachts to narrow boats and Dutch barges.
All the boat fittings undertaken are largely based on the ideas and requirements of the owners and are completed to the highest standards. We always feel it is important to concentrate on one project at a time so your boat will have our full attention from start to finish irrespective as to whether you need a partial re-fit, full fit-out or maybe just some help if you’re doing the work yourself.
We are mobile boat fitters so can work anywhere in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia which means you can avoid expensive boat yard fees. However, your boat does need to be somewhere accessible so we can work near to it and perhaps make some mess! This requirement usually rules out some marinas with strict policies.
We also make and fit boat windows, sky-lights, wheelhouses, masts and spars. For more information use the contacts page.
As all my windows are hand made they can be any shape or size
All the boat ﬁtting I do is to the highest standards based on the requirements
Skylight’s can vary greatly in size from a small Pigeon box for a Narrowboat
There are two main categories of Wheelhouse, ﬁxed or folding
Paul made the windows and wheelhouse then went on to ﬁt out my Dutch Barge over an 18 month period and transformed it into a most beautiful and comfortable vessel.His work is of the highest standard and he has idea’s to match.I’ve no hesitation in recommending him if you are seeking a quality ﬁt out at a reasonable price,Check his work at www.foweybelle.com–Neil Harkness,Fowey Belle
I have had BoatﬁtEurope’s Bow Top Windows in my Narrowboat for seven years,I am very satisﬁed with them.The big bonus with them is that they are Double Glazed keeping condensation to virtually nil. A wipe of Teak Oil or similar every six months keeps the outside woodwork in good condition–Keith Scammell.Kerridge
Paul ﬁtted double glazed windows and doors to our boat White Friar,on the Exeter Canal last year. He was the only person we could ﬁnd who was prepared to make and actually ﬁt them. He is a very skilled craftsmen with wood who charges reasonably and we would highly recommend him–Brian & Janet Hutchins,White Friar.
Patrick and I were very happy with the efﬁcient and professional way Paul at BoatﬁtEurope dealt with our requirements.Owning a classic Dutch Barge over a hundred years old comes with a lot of responsibility,Paul was sensitive to this and discussed the windows with us,which we feel enhance the beautiful classic lines of our boat.–Lady Michelle Helly,De Zwerver
Very pleased with the end result, she now looks like a real ship !. Thank you, your exploits, dedication in such conditions did not go unnoticed with so many people mentioning to me their admiration.–Robin Nettleton,Wimbry
