In May 2019, Swan exhibited at the Crick Boat Show, Britain’s biggest inland waterways festival, for the first time. There was no need for first-time nerves as the team was greeted warmly by the many other boat builders and market leaders. Everyone enjoyed the long weekend, and the compliments received overwhelmed the whole team.


The boat chosen to show off Swan’s skills had been commissioned by Paul and Ruth. Adding to the excitement was the fact this would be the first time they’d seen their finished boat. It was love at very first sight and they set about making the most of the show specials on offer. They’d given Ian and his team considerable freedom with the build, allowing them to put their own spin on it, making it the best it could be for such a fantastic show. The finished product fitted everyone’s brief. The team had loved every minute working with the proud owners.
