At our yard in the old port of Skippool we specialise in the building, repair and restoration of classic wooden craft from 8ft dinghies to ocean-going yachts. We have the skills and experience to undertake work in all the common construction methods, whether clinker, carvel, cold moulding or strip-planking.
The latter method has been used to build all sizes of our well known "Sea Otter" canoe yawls which range from 13ft and 15ft daysailers to 18, 21 and 25ft cruising versions, each one tailored to their owner's requirements.
All spars and fittings are designed and made in our workshops in order to maintain our high standards of workmanship.
We also provide outside storage, cranage, grp repairs, welding. We supply timber, plywood, rope, paint and general maintenance materials.
Current projects include
- restoration of a 1913, 7 metre racing yacht
- repair of an 80 year old steam launch
- building of a 12ft lugsail dinghy
