Marine Classics

 Four generations of master craftmanship in wood ensures a genuine tradition of excellence in our family company.

 The current manager John Coates has worked on many wooden classics repair and restoration projects. From superyachts, through medium sized power and sailing craft to dinghies. As well as extensive experience of  building new boats.

 Based on a wealth of experience of what goes wrong with older wood boats, we have designed our classic boats to have an abundance of classic style - without the restoration, safety and maintenance problems of an old  boat.

 John is also a Yachtmaster with thousands of sea miles experience. This shows in the rugged safety and practicality features built in to our boats.

 Our boats and launches are constructed from the finest mahogany and other hardwoods. Together with epoxy, kevlar, carbon fibre and other space age materials. These innovative construction techniques give our craft incredible strength with low maintenance.
 This makes a high quality boat which has the grace of a timeless classic, but the low upkeep of a modern boat. Something to pass down the generations which will have style and value in decades to come.

 Each one of our classic boats is unique and built to order. We will modify any of our designs for a particular use  or size. We will also custom make any fibreglass, mahogany or wooden boat to your design or requirements  up to around 30 feet.

 Our boats are used with pleasure and pride around the world.
