Narrowboat Builders?

We would like some suggestions, as to who to go to, to get quotes for a live-aboard new build. It may well turn out to be a “sailaway + bits fitted” for us to finish ourselves but we want the basics to be right for us and we don’t think we need/can afford a complete “bespoke” build.
We have already visited;

Wharf House narrowboats – very impressed
Tristar (Jeremy Greenwood)
Nottingham Boats

While I’m managing to post this, maybe you can advise on the relative costs of buying a secondhand boat and getting it altered/sorted to suit us?
