About Us

We have been in business for more than 45 years and are experts in antique and classic wooden boat and ship design; lofting; building; restoration; fine woodworking; wood and fiberglass repair. We are based in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, covering the Bayshore area as well as New York, Connecticut, New England and the entire east coast to Florida.

While we specialize in restoring antique and classic boats - we do much more. We are custom craftsmen, applying our skills to any project requiring a high degree of quality performance and creativity.
