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.

Started by Dominic Miles, a boat owner for 30 years and formerly a long standing contributor to the leading magazine, Waterways World, Rugby Boat Sales has become established as one of the best brokerage services on the inland waterways. The business skills Dominic developed during his 15 years working for Richard Branson as Deputy Managing Director of Virgin Music has brought a quality of salesmanship and organisation all too frequently lacking in the Inland Waterways leisure sector. Dominic retired from the business in October 2016. James and Claire Millsop, who having lived aboard for nearly seven years and were looking for an opportunity in the boating forum, acquired the business, and continue 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, RW Davis & Son at Saul Junction on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, Norton Canes Boatbuilders in Walsall, Bugbrooke Marina on the GU in Northants and Pitstone Wharf on the GU in Hertordshire/Beds border

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. All our staff are boat owners so our love of boats is genuine and first hand.

Drake, formerly a BW butty, was built by Isaac Pimblott & Sons, Northwich, at their Weaver Shipyard in 1959. She is on the Historic Boat Register. She was originally built as a deep draught butty to British Waterways specification for multiple cargoes, but was never used to her full potential as most canals are too shallow. She worked the Grand Union Canal network for 3 years and then all ‘Admiral’ class boats were decommissioned. In 1963 she was bought for motorisation and conversion into a houseboat, one of the first liveaboards on the system. She has had only two owners ... read more

Moriarty is a 58’ ‘go anywhere’ traditional style narrowboat in beautiful condition, both inside & out. She was built by G& J Reeves in 2004 and has had only two owners from new. She has been loved and cherished by both of them - and it shows. The well deck has a very good condition cratch cover with flexiglaze windows, and has storage under the seats. The carpet in here gives it a cosy feel and a nice entrance into the saloon. Fitted out in oak faced ply with sapele trim, the woodwork is first class and gives the boat a luxurious feel. The saloon is 10’... 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

Midnight Rambler is a 60 foot cruiser stern Collingwood shell with a light and airy Orchard Marina fitout. The boat is accessed from the rear cruiser stern deck which comes with some colour co-ordinated foot lockers to the taff rail. Steering position is good and the engine under the boards is the popular Canaline 38. Opening the rear doors and descending the cleverly designed steps which give more room to the bedroom, you immediately feel the extra headroom that the Collingwood shell gives you - 6’10” in this boat. The woodwork is a light oak finish throughout. There is lots... read more

About Time is a 60’ cruiser stern narrowboat and a rare opportunity to get a new boat without having to wait! She was built in 2018 by Pat Buckle on a Stan Hardy shell at Stibbington, and only has the delivery hours (51) on the Vetus 43 engine. She is, as you would expect, in mint condition. She is fitted out in ash and has carpet tiles throughout, except for the galley and shower room which is vinyl. The well deck leads into the huge saloon (14’ long). This is open plan and has a sofabed (which makes into a 5’3”x3’3” berth), a comfortable armchair and a... 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

Chusan is a 71’ 6” traditional style narrowboat full of charm and character. She was built by Stenson and fitted out by Stephen Reay in 2000, and has been a well looked after home to the owners since 2004. She was repainted in 2010, blacked in July 2015 (and the hull was surveyed at the same time), and her magnificant Ruston Hornsby engine was serviced at the beginning of 2017. The boat is mainly fitted out in oak faced ply to the ceilings and cabin sides, with carpet below the gunwales and to the floors. The back cabin is the lovely traditional scumbled wood. She has portholes... read more
