Reverie Metal Co ( was Reverie Canal Trading Co) is a small, independently run business.

Between us we have a wealth of experience coming from a background in engineering & adaptation, of high performance motor vehicles for racing both on road and off road.
Inc the installation and tuning of engines, ground up rebuilds, suspension/handling modification & upgrades. Bespoke fabrication of exhausts & manifolds.
Fabrication and installation of MSA specification roll cages.
Chassis & monocoque modifications.

This then lead to us being requested to make alternative items for people inc BBQs, gates, trailers and sculptural pieces. Then Along came the opportunity to live aboard a narrow boat. This meant us looking at moving our work on to the canals starting with the manufacture of our own range of candles and leading into buying a second boat to work on and reinvent our fabrication business.

We decided to buy a Historic butty as we have a keen interest in history, and it gave us opportunity to save one from the chop. While giving us a beautiful place to work. Move forward a few years and with in house plasma cnc capabilities and our tool set growing along with our job list we have started to out grow the boats and our business will slowly migrate back onto land. Its one big evolving journey. Find out more about our Historic Butty Lyra here.
