Craven Boatbuilding Fine Yacht Woodworking/ Carpentry

As boat builders carrying on the centuries-old craft of fine yacht joinery and yacht aesthetics — instead of house carpenters or cabinet makers who have adapted their craft to boats —clients can trust the finished product will be both beautiful and lasting, even in the most extreme sea conditions. With over 25,000 miles of blue water sailing experience, we know how to design and build for maximum functionality and quality. From minor fine cabinetry and repairs, to new custom boat construction, our skills and experience let us professionally manage and complete any project.
