    Classic Launch

Classic yachts and launches are cherished “souls”.  Whether the classic has been in the family or your dream one has found you, it is a legacy that we are all proud to honor and care for.  The craftsmanship of the highest quality that adheres as much as possible to the original design is our mission.  We do not cut any corners in the maintaining, the repairing or in the refit of these cherished classics.

For three generations, we’ve been deeply involved in every aspect of classic yachting including sailing one in our own family in regattas such as the annual Mahurangi Classic Regatta.

We’ve also designed and built modern classic launches as well as rebuilt, restored and refitted original classics.  Our extensive knowledge of the traditional methods will provide the most expert and informed solution and the best quality workmanship for your classic yacht or launch.
