New construction on wooden or fiberglass boats can be a new mast, new galley, or a new boat.
A custom built boat is your boat, designed and built the way you want it to be, for your own particular use.
You have a wide choice of construction methods: traditional, such as lapstrake, carvel, seambatten, strip, or contemporary, such as cold molded, plywood, or plywood stitch and tape. Your boat may be a dream for the future but I’d like a chance to help you realize your dream.

I have extensive experience in most types of traditional and contemporary wooden boat construction.
