Our philosophy is quite simpleWe just love to build, restore and sail wooden boats with their beauty, unique feel and their irresistible attraction.
We love what we doWe admit unashamedly that we don't like fibreglass and that we relish the challenge of putting wooden boats together everyday. We specialise in restorationRestoring wooden boats is fun, it keeps your mind occupied, and the fact that you are creating a one-off experience is hard to beat.
The 'Gem Class' is a breath of fresh airThe inspiration for the 'Gem Class' came from the numerous gaff-rigged daysailers designed and built at the turn of last century. The inspiration for the 'Gem Class' came from the numerous gaff-rigged daysailers designed and built by Nathaneal Greene Herreshoff at the turn of last century.


Having just completed our 2nd 'Gem' we feel that we have reached one of the pinnacles of wooden boat building: 'Thight seam carvel planking in mahogany clear finished'. Our next challenge is to create the Class of 'Gems' that eventually can have a fun racing series all over New Zealand. Daysailer For the last 20 odd years, we have primarily repaired and restored wooden boats. If you are one of the people that is as crazy about beautiful wooden boats as us, we would like to hear from you. We preserve the authenticity, craftsmanship, beauty, and value of vintage mahogany watercraft for future generations.


That may or may not be true, but what most definitely was better were items that required countless hours of labor from skilled craftsmen, primarily antique furniture and classic mahogany boats.
