Rugby Boat Sales is the premier high quality brokerage service. Whilst we subscribe to to the time honoured values of friendly and comprehensive customer service we also take a thoroughly modern approach to marketing in this internet driven age.

Originally started by Dominic Miles, a boat owner for 30 years and a long standing contributor to waterways magazines, Rugby Boat Sales has become established as one of the best brokerage services on the inland waterways. Dominic retired from the business in October 2016 and James and Claire Millsop, who having lived aboard for nearly seven years, acquired the business - continuing to run it with the same philosophy and professionalism as before.

The business now operates from a premises on the Grand Union at Stowe Hill, Weedon, and also has brokerage arrangements with Blisworth Marina on the Grand Union in Northants, Bugbrooke Marina on the GU in Northants and Lechlade Marina on the Upper Thames

The company is a member of the BRBA, the brokerage arm of the British Marine Federation, and as such we operate under their Code of Conduct which includes a proper protected client account for customers funds.

We provide proper paperwork for each sale and ensure that any boat being sold has the RCD certification in place, where applicable.

We produce high quality photography using professional Nikon equipment, not just a snapshot camera or worse, a mobile phone.

Our brochures are available to everyone in a format designed to work on all home printers without the need to fill out off putting web registration forms to obtain them. They are noted for focussing on the important detail in a concise and easy-to-read style and are not padded out with irrelevant waffle about curtain colours or the serial number of the fridge.

Our advice pages are extensive and are based on direct experience and boating knowledge. Most of our staff are boat owners so our love of boats is genuine and first hand.

Running Water is a 60ft x 9ft Collingwood Pioneer widebeam which appears far larger internally than it is due to the light and airy fitout. The completion last year after launch in 2016 is with light painted panels and gloriously rich woodwork in the galley, saloon and cupboards throughout. She is a reverse lay out with the galley entered down steps from the cruiser stern. As you might expect on a boat of this size, there is a lot of cupboard space in the galley. Lovely walnut and T& G units encompass an eye level oven and hob, along with a 12V fridge. The galley is open plan to... read more

Eliza is a 50ft BCN tug style narrowboat with an interesting history. It was built as a 40ft craft in 1983 by Warren Bros of Burton on Trent, in an attempt to save the works from closure. Warren’s principal business was the fabrication of steel pressure vessels for the brewing industry. It is said that the quality of steel used may therefore be superior and a recent survey by Steve Hand (2013), confirms the good condition of the hull. The boat was surveyed again in 2016 and minor remedial works carried out. The boat was “stretched” by 10ft in 2000 by Streethay Wharf. The ma... read more

Hattie is a superb example of a Norton Canes quality boat, fitted out by the well thought of Blue Haven Marine and with hatches and back cabin wonderfully decorated by the late Ron Hough making it a piece of canal history too. No expense was spared in creating the original boat and this has continued through the owners with no expense spared with on-going maintenance. Entering the boat from the front end there is plenty of storage in lockers which have padded seats and a drop down table hiding another locker under the canvas cratch cover. As you step down into the saloon, the richness of the... read more

Godstow is a 2006 57ft Cruiser stern narrowboat, with a hull by the highly regarded Colecraft, and a fit out by Oxfordshire narrowboats with whom she spent 4 years as part of their hire fleet. She has all that is needed for comfortable living aboard; we sold her a year ago in Dec 2017 and she is back for sale for personal reasons. Prior to that she provided a warm and cosy home for the previous 7 years, so she is a tried and tested liveaboard. She has a semi-reverse layout. The very easily managed steps from the large stern deck lead into the saloon. A cosy room housing the Boatman stove, ... read more

Bubble is a 60ft cruiser stern narrowboat built in 2001 for the hire trade with ABC and in private ownership since 2014. Since then much work has been carried out to improve her with a large flat solar array, roof box, cratch and pram covers and a new stove being fitted amongst other works. The very large cruiser stern at the rear has an oversize gas locker which doubles as a seat with storage. Under the boards is the powerful Nanni Kubota engine - more than adequate for canals and easily able to cope with rivers. Entering the boat you first come across a small cabin previously used as a... read more

A cosy area with a comfortable Ikea armchair and footstool, a solid fuel stove and various cupboards and shelves.

Narrow Waters is a reverse layout 58’ ‘go anywhere’ cruiser stern narrowboat. She was built by Pendle Narrowboats on a Bridgeman Hull in 2015 and feels modern and stylish. Her livery is very unusual and apt for both the World Cup and Brexit year - the Union Flag is emblazoned on both sides and the front doors, and the pram hood and cratch cover are the Union colours also. She is a very social boat; the large stern deck seats 5 comfortably around the table, there are 3 double berths and two toilets. A real party boat! The stern deck leads past two floor to ceiling cupboards ... read more
