Canal boat paint and coatings suppliers

We list suppliers of specialist canal boat paints, painting materials and ready made lettering and signage. One of the most attractive features of our canals is the shining paintwork and colourful decoration of the boats. That ‘roses & castles’ and smart signwritten tradition survives today, on a wide range of modern and traditional narrowboats.


  • A wide range of special paints and finishes have been developed to provide colourful and lasting protection on modern canal boats.
  • If you want to find someone to paint or signwrite your boat we list canal boat painters and signwriters separately. Phil Speight offers advice on getting the best narrowboat paint finish.
  • If you are interested in paintings and drawings of the canals, or traditionally decorated canalware, such as Buckby cans and cabin stools, see our listings of canal artists, canalware and canal crafts.
  • We’ve also a full section on Canal Folk Art, exploring the origins and varieties of canal boat signwriting and decoration, written by the acknowledged expert, Tony Lewery.
