Devon Wooden Boats
Devon Wooden Boats Ltd. are now based at Units 1 & 2 Lapthorne Industrial Estate on the Totnes Road between Newton Abbot and Totnes near Dainton golf course. We realised the majority of projects come to us by road rather than water and the rest remain floating in the various local marinas, so although it seems counter-intuitive working from an inland industrial estate we are only five miles from Baltic Wharf at the top of the river Dart, and 20-30 mins drive from all local marinas. We now have 3700 sqft of workshops for the same running costs of less than half that space shore side, along with the benefit of temperature and humidity stable workshops. The new workshops allow the company space to continue growing and for the first time to start building new boats on a commercial scale.
We offer a broad range of Shipwright Services from new builds to major restoration works and all aspects of general maintenance for private and commercial wooden or GRP yachts, launches and dinghies.
With our own BMEEA award winning Marine Electrical Technician, Kris Dunn who is BMET (British Marine Electrical Technician) and NMEA qualified MEI (Marine Electronics Installer) under the British Marine Federation schemes. We can offer a fully certified marine electrical service for both AC and DC systems. We cover the areas of Dartmouth, Kingswear, River Dart, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Totnes, Salcombe, Teignmouth and Shaldon in Devon. We offer a broad range of marine electrical services from installing new lights or gadgets to fault finding and complete rewires.
