Wild Rooster

Launched in summer 2023 -- Wild Rooster is a replica of a high-speed, low draft skiff originally designed and built by English designer Uffa Fox.

Built of Western Red Cedar and updated with modern cold-molded construction techniques this boat was shipped to Maine last summer and will feature in a Wooden Boat Magazine article in



Built in 1956 in Massachusetts and designed by the John Alden office -- Ooma has been undergoing an extensive restoration since she came under new ownership.

Our team fit a new stem, sternpost and horn timber. Many frame ends were then repaired before new mahogany planks replaced the original ones that were removed to do the structural work. New bronze keel bolts and fasteners as well as a new mast step all went in in 2023.

This year a brand new interior is being installed to complete the 

restoration and give her another 60 years on the water.

Powerboat refit

This Mainship 36 from the late seventies came to Old Town Boatworks for a complete refit. The boat was completely stripped to a bare hull and deck.

New engine, generator, bow-thruster and systems have all been installed by DCE Marine as Old Town Boatworks have built an entirely new luxurious custom interior of brightly painted bulkheads/deckheads and varnished Mahogany trim and sole.

The boat is due to launch summer 2024.

The new deck was milled from new teak and each board bonded individually.

1945 Fife 

The beautiful Nyachilwa arrived in Lunenburg in 2022. She needed her varnish stripped completely, stained and re-finished with Epifanes UV varnish.

To stain and varnish existing pieces involves a very careful (and longer than usual) sanding process to ensure we didn't lay stain over old varnish (can cause a 'patchy' look).

Nyachilwa should be sailing out and around Lunenburg Harbour Summer 2024.
