Our shop

Although you may plan nothing more adventurous than a weekend cruise with the family on Long Island Sound or Buzzards Bay, your boat should be built by people who understand the demands of the sea. With over 16 trans-Atlantic voyages under our belts, we know how to build a sound vessel that can withstand the test of time.

Our crew and shop are equipped to handle all the lofting, woodworking, machining, welding, foundrywork, fiberglassing, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, painting, varnishing and rigging necessary to build a custom boat. We can accommodate vessels to fifty feet LOA and fourteen feet BOA.

Working with a roster of the world’s best designers, engineers and marine suppliers, we complete commissions on time and on budget—and at a price that is competitive with production-built boats.

Quality production boat builders charge from $20 to $30 per pound of displacement. We can produce or refurbish a boat in that range—and give you more satisfaction than anything you’ll find off the factory floor.
