Essex Shipwrights and Boat builders, wooden boat building and repairs
Maldon in Essex has a nucleus of shipwrights and boatbuilders who carry out restorations, repairs, take on new builds on a host of different wooden vessels. We also fit out steel, GRP, or ferro cement hulls.
Our onsite Shipwright team are capable of a small repairs to large restoration projects or new builds. they can lend their hands to fine yacht interiors and cabinet making upto the larger more robust woodworking skills required when involved in the rebuilding of Thames Sailing Barges and East Coast Smacks. The skills that we have to hand are second to none,and with the wealth of knowledge and experience in wooden boat construction there is no task that cannot be undertaken.
The East Coast and the River Blackwater estuary are a hub of traditional working boats with a large number of the East Coast Smacks having been completely rebuilt and the Thames Barges being continually maintained and rebuilt. The restoration of these vessels has created a knowledge and skill level that is seldom found to such a degree in other areas.
