Half-Models

We can construct new boats using four traditional wooden boat building technologies. Carvel, clinker, cold moulding and strip planking.  The size, use, weight and other considerations determine, in consultation with the owner, the best method for the new build. Check out each sub-section to learn about the techniques we use.

Regardless of the method of construction all new boat build projects are only started once a suitable half-model has been crafted and the necessary naval architectural criteria calculated.  Our half-models provide an insight in to the look of the finished boats hull shape and provides reference points for the manufacture of the construction templates.
