Our boatshop is capable of constructing or performing repairs on any type of wooden boat up to 20 feet in length. If you are in need of a yacht tender, fishing boat, recreational watercraft, or custom oars, please let us know.
In addition to wooden boat construction, our boatshop interns and staff build cutting boards, Adirondack chairs, outdoor furniture, and wooden toys for sale.
