Here we see a small selection of the restoration projects we have undertaken.
'Barn Owl' won the 'Best Restoration' prize at the 1992 Windermere Classic Boat Festival. She was originally built early in the 1900's and was restored at Swallowtail Boatyard in 1991/2.
Vintage day launch 'Barn Owl', from bare hull to sheer elegance!
'Peace of Mind' began her life in 1963 at Richardson's Boatyard in Oulton Broad as 'Swiftway' No 1. She is a 37' all wooden, traditional Broads Motor Cruiser, built specifically for the hire fleet. She remained in hire until 1991, when she went to her first private owner. She was acquired by her current owners in 1995 and has been substantially rebuilt.
After many hours of painstaking work, 'Peace of Mind' back home with her owner.
