What is your wish ?

The Boat Genie offers a range of services for boat owners and other users of the canals and waterways of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, and Humberside. We have boats ranging from 6ft to 40ft, cars, a van, and even an electric bike - so we can get to you more or less wherever you are on the waterways.


We are not a dealer or agent for any specific company “selling” anything - so our advice is truly independent. Although we carry a wide range of small items, we also do not "sell" major equipment from stock. If you want or need a piece of equipment we can order whatever make and model you choose, but we have to add a small surcharge for our time and travel. Alternatively, we are more than happy for you to arrange supply yourself and just use us to install / fit / connect.

Our main services

Electrical and electronic work.


We have many qualifications and years of experience, and we can install or repair practically anything with wires. Our typical boat jobs are such things as ;- replacing water, bilge, and waste pumps, fitting or replacing dashboard controls, gauges and switches, tracing and fixing relay and cable faults. We can do a complete rewire on an engine (inboard petrol or diesel, and some but not all outboards), but we are not a boatyard and a full fitout of a bare hull would probably be better done by a boatyard. We are also happy to work on hoovers, generators, invertors, TVs and so on, however please be aware that parts are often difficult or impossible to obtain, and where they are available the cost often makes the job uneconomical.

Solar Systems.


We can offer a full service starting with a power audit of your boat and a comprehensive load-test of your batteries, alternator(s), etc. through specifying a system to suit your needs (anything from from a weekender to full-time live-aboard), supplying all components, installing, and testing.  Alternatively we are perfectly happy to just connect up and test if you want to select, source, and install the parts yourself.

Comprehensive testing of batteries, alternators, solar controllers, etc.


We have a range of sophisticated electrical test equipment (and the knowledge to use it), so we can test your systems fully, under load, rather than just measuring a static voltage.

Supply and fit LED lights and bulbs.


We carry a small stock of the most common LED bulbs, and we can order almost any bulb or fitting. Alternatively we are happy to fit either bulbs or fittings you have purchased yourself.
