Spiercraft 24ft Narrowboat

Can anybody help me track down any info on my boat?
I do believe it was built by either N&M or M&N Narrowboats between 1990 - 1995. The model is Spiercraft 24ft with an Honda GD1250 engine. Any advise or info would be of great help😊

It would have been built by M&N narrowboats- their Minaret and Spirecraft range were built in lengths of 20 to 35ft, with the smaller ones often powered by outboard motors, or inboard engines like yours- though Vetus engines were a common installation.
I believe that most of the boats were built with a 6/5/3mm plate specification, which was common for boats of that era. Good paintwork and regular replacement of anodes can help with longevity.
I can probably dig out some further information from my archives if that is any use- if you have specific questions, please feel free to email me at mark.langley@waterwaysworld.com and I will do my best to try and answer them!
