unparalleled Experience

Craven Boatbuilding offers the increasingly rare art of the Master Shipwright, an extensive knowledge of wooden boat construction and joinery coupled with the mastery of woodworking.  


Gained by the centuries old method of apprenticeship, and honed by extensive experience, this age-old craft is carried on through us. That expertise leaves us qualified to undertake any repair on wooden boats of any size, from 3-ton classic racing sloops to 100-ton Coast Guard-inspected historical ships. With wooden yacht experience in complete re-builds up to 60', historic restorations, new construction, and every repair in between, your wooden classic can be entrusted to us with confidence.‚Äč
