Bespoke Boat Building

We offer a genuinely bespoke service, so whether you’re interested

in a boat for use to live-aboard, for extended cruising or as a weekend

retreat we can help.


Built to your specification, we aim to produce only the highest quality

of craft, using the best of both modern and traditional materials and

techniques. Every boat starts with a shell from one of the country’s

most respected builders, typically Alexander Boatuilders,

Tyler / Wilson or Reeves. We only use the best equipment from

suppliers such as Victron and Beta Marine, and all fit-out materials

used are ethically sourced.


Each craft is as individual as its owner and we’ve yet to build two boats

that are the same. We actively encourage our customers to be as

involved as possible in every stage of the build process, from the

design of the hull, technical specifications and layout, through to the choice of materials and finishes used internally. We only build one boat at a time so you can be assured of our best attention at all times - we don’t put arbitrary limits on how often you can see your project progressing; our customers are made to feel free to visit whenever suits them.


All our builds are overseen by an independent marine surveyor, are fully warranted, and come with a complete set of certified documents as required by the RCD (EU Recreational Craft Directive). To provide additional assurance, we also provide with every craft a certificate issued under the UK’s Boat Safety Scheme. We are members of both the British Marine Federation and Canal Boatbuilders Association and hence adhere to their respective codes of practice.


As well as building to order, we also produce ‘spec’ boats from time to time. These are built to the same exacting standards as our bespoke builds, but are available to those who would rather purchase a fully completed craft. Our next spec boat is due for completion early in 2014 - for details please visit the Boats for Sale page.
