ALT8V visits Peter Nicholls at

We recently met Peter Nicholls at his Braunstone-based boat yard. He was working hard on a commission to create a bespoke barge built to a very specific purpose and high quality. It was a great opportunity to draw upon Peter's 30 years of boat building experience.

Peter and his team were also responsible for the design & construction of the Princess Matilda - which is the boat that Timothy & Shane Spalls used in BBC 4 series 'Back at Sea' to cruise around the British Isles.

Coincidently, my neighbour moored at Poplar has a similar boat built by Steelboats; they are some of the most active boaters in the marina, as their boat enables them to go anywhere and do anything.

Keep up the good work Peter and put me on the waiting list!
