Boat Building

With over 30 years of boat building experience , we have a reputation for making hard working and sturdy craft such as the Saltram Range of workboats. Some of these can be seen today operating as ferries around the west country including at St. Michael's Mount and Looe.

Cornish Shrimpers
Launch & recovery

We can rig your boat for you - so all you have to do is carry on sailing. We maintain a fleet of shrimpers and offer a range of services to ensure your boat is in the best condition for the coming season. This includes checking the rigging and ensuring it is in good working order, varnishing all the wood work and re-applying anti fouling. In our chandelry we stock many spares including Barton blocks.

We can launch, recover & moor your boat if required, at a time that suits (dependant on tides etc.)
