Restoration (something old, something new)


As well as our production boats, we have long experience of building quality wooden dinghies, including Salcombe Yawls, which has given the Boatyard at Beer the skills to carry out restorations to a high standard, respecting the past whilst drawing on the best of modern technology and materials.  We can provide a range of options from a full restoration to re-decking itemised internal work i.e. new boxes, thwarts and knees.  Restoration of foils, stocks and tillers, to a fully rigged boat complete with fittings, ropes and wires as required.  Repainting and re-varnishing can be done to the highest of standards reflecting the wishes of our customers

We have photographed the restoration of the National 12 and the Graduate.  Please click on the images to see the whole process, stage by stage.
