In 1986 Graham took over the running of Norton Canes from Malcolm Braine, Malcolm had almost reached job number 1000, so Graham decided to number his craft starting with No. 1001. The first boat that was built under his ownership, Tilbury, was given this number.

It is intended for this page to showcase all boats built at Norton Canes over the past 30 years. If you have a photograph or any information relating to our boats please use the 'Contact Us' section on the website to get in touch.
