Custom Boatbuilding

If you have a boat design that you would like to have built please use the contact form at the bottom of this page and lets talk about your project.  If you do not have an exact plan in mind I would highly recommend looking at the plans located at Duckworksbbs.com for a design that will suit your needs.

Custom boatbuilding pricing varies by design and how many hours are estimated by the designer to build your boat.  The materials and supplies are billed to you at our cost.

My shop is small and this limits the size of boat that I can build to about 20 feet.


About Us

I built my first boat in 2005 and found the building process to be almost as much fun as being out on the water. Since that time I have built several boats, some for me and some for others.  

In December 2019 I decided to buy John Owens' business of making rudders, daggerboards and tillers for several production boats. I always found that these were some of my favorite parts to make during a boat build.  The foil is such an intimate part to the performance of the boat and making one that water would flow smoothly over fascinated me.

John has

a great reputation for quality products at a fair price and it is my intent to continue that tradition.
