Here you’ll find our latest news.


We are proud to announce we’ve won the contract to supply the fly fishing boats for the World Fly Fishing Championships 2019 in Tasmania. Production has started on the first batch of boats that will be shipped in early June 2019.

V29 Demonstrator available for use now based in Southampton. We also have a V29 available for demonstrations near Inverness, Scotland on a private estate.

All new V17 currently in build, first 3 are sold, demonstrator available late April / May 2019.

2019 looks like another very busy year with 4 large pontoon projects on the go, Scotland, Wales and North England.

Brand new V24 on the drawing board, 12 person capacity plus crew, and with an option of a side opening door for access from alongside pontoon.

Lots of new products from Torqeedo including their uprated 1103, and larger deep blue models.

Suzuki outboards are still a big seller giving smooth, powerful performance throughout the range. Give us a go at pricing your next engine!

New range of trailers coming in 2019. All stock trailers are available to hire, long or short term.

Good luck for the new season, all at the Coulam team!



We are expanding more into floating pontoons and trailer manufacturing. New workshop facilities and a full time fabricator now mean we can build our steel pontoon frames and trailers quicker. New pontoons have been installed at Llangdegfedd reservoir in Wales, and another 3 are in build at the moment for Anglian Water and Severn Trent Water.

Not only are we building boat trailers, but we are designing and building exhibition units as well as catering and welfare trailers. Again, everything is bespoke built, so please contact us with your requirements. All chassis are fully welded galvanised steel, with quality running gear, with GRP moulded panels and various fit-outs. Everything is IVA tested by VOSA.

A brand new range of full LED trailer lighting boards are being developed – pressed Aluminium board, full LED lighting, all ‘E’ approved, super high quality designed to last. So if you’re fed up with the current crappy plastic boards from China breaking every 5 minutes, give us a call. Every board is built to spec, and lovingly handmade in our workshops. Stay legal – its 3 points on the licence for a light that doesn’t work whether on your car or trailer!

The Coulam V20 Wheelyboat order book is looking very full at the moment with 4 currently in build, and the trust is busy fundraising for several more, and the enquiries are still coming in. Just search “Coulam Wheelyboat” on YouTube!

J M Coulam now have the SUZUKI outboard engine dealership. Real good quality motor up there with the best. give us a call for best prices!

Many thanks to all our customers over the last 12 months, and good luck to all for another very busy season.

Remember, we make everything you need to run a successful fishery / beat……… except fish!

Seasons greetings! Here is the end to another incredibly busy and successful year:

Torqeedo customers – if you still use the older 401/801 motors, now is the time to part exchange them in for a brand new 503/1003 model. You can get up to 80% of the original purchase price of the old motor off the price of a new motor! BARGAIN!!!

The launch of the new Coulam v20 Wheelyboat. Look at the video on YouTube – just search “J M Coulam”.

The new Coulam 16 day hire boat. New pics on web site.

The new Coulam 15 day hire  boat – first one is in production now and will be launched in early 2015.

Only the third second hand Coulam 16 was sold this year. Find out why so few have ever been re-sold. Check out our Coulam 16 web page.

We now have a dedicated team building custom made TRAILERS. Each is individually designed to customers specifications, so if you have an odd shaped boat that just doesn’t fit an off-the-shelf trailer, let us have a look. If you are in need of a quality trailer, and don’t want to buy a crappy Chinese import, give us a call. We build boat trailers, box trailers, mobile display trailers, everything….

A bumper year for PONTOONS – We have replaced a water authority’s old plastic modular pontoons with our safe and stable steel framed pontoons. Optional fully welded stainless steel hand rails were fitted on all 12 sections.

Thank you to all our loyal customers, and new customers! We look forward to providing you with everything you need to run a successful fishery / fishing beat. JIM COULAM
