About Black Pearl Narrowboats

Black Pearl Narrowboats is a division of Staffordshire Fabrications, established in 1993, a family business run by MD Paul Tombs. The company is a member of the BMF (British Marine Federation) and the CBA (Canal Boat Association). Black Pearl manufacture the narrowboat "shell", the heart of a quality canal boat that will give many years of reliable service. All our canal boat shells are "CE" marked as proof of compliance with the RCD (Recreational Craft directive). Our boat shells are of robust construction, for example we build in heavy duty floor bearers for added strength and durability. Our narrowboats enjoy good resale values thanks to the quality of manufacture and materials used.

Black Pearl Narrowboats have good relationships with a number of well established canal boat fitters, who can complete your dream narrowboat down to the last detail. Alternatively, if you already have a fitter you wish to use then we are more than happy to work in partnership with them.


"We use Black Pearl shells
because they are very robust
and of the highest
quality construction"
