Four Counties Marine Services


I’m a long established and hard working independent narrowboat engineer and started out working for a high quality Boat Builder nearly 20 years ago. I’m passionate about my work and my customers have total confidence that the job will be done properly, with care and with attention to detail. I work from my workshop in Leek, Staffordshire, a good central location to cover many of the most popular canals and marinas.

Over the last 8-9 years I’ve specialised in Electrolux & Dometic Travel Power generator repairs, diesel fired heating installation & repairs, alternator/charging system upgrades, electrical troubleshooting & repairs and solar installations. I’ve attended official factory run training courses for some of the products that I work with - such as Victron, PRM, Eberspacher, Webasto and Kabola.

I am always really busy with a long list of jobs booked in so please call to schedule a job well in advance. I can sometimes prioritise emergency/breakdown calls at short notice.

All work is guaranteed and new parts supplied have a full warranty. I am properly insured with £5M marine public liability insurance and the cover-note with when I'm working in a Boatyard or Marina. I don’t deal with cash and all jobs are invoiced afterwards with payment taken using online banking or cheque.

I’m slowly trying to improve my website. Here is a link to some case studies where I try to demonstrate the type of work I do.


“Very responsive, thorough, personable, reliable, and trustworthy.”

“There was no 'hard sell', just sound, considered and knowledgeable advice.”

“I want to thank you for a very professional job. I don’t think your bill is excessive but the quality of the work is excellent.”
