Restorations

Through our extensive experience with complete, historically sensitive restoration of classic wooden yachts, we have proven time and again that quality older traditionally built boats, even in very poor condition, can be brought back to fulfill modern yachting needs in a cost effective manner. We utilize appropriate modern techniques and materials where they can reduce maintenance and improve longevity without detracting from appearance.

Here is a partial list of some of our recent restoration projects:
