In this day of fibreglass and wood veneers, where does a prospective boat owner go when traditional quality timber boat restoration is paramount.

I had the pleasure of acquiring the last Halvorsen Viking Sportsman 32 built. In need of work and lots of it.

The craftsmen shipwrights of Cottage Point Boat Shed were my first and only choice. Their eye for detail and honesty, so rarely found these days, made my 18 month restoration journey a joy to experience.

To return a vessel to be better, stronger and safer than the day it was launched takes exceptional, knowledgeable and dedicated trades. Cottage Point Boatshed abound in these qualities.

I cannot recommend them highly enough.
