Every Wayfarer is hand built by our skilled workforce, the result is that every Wayfarer is built to high standards and has excellent finishes.

Every Wayfarer is built to your own exact specification. This can start with the choice of hull colours and may include extra reinforcement for training groups or extra location points for cruising storage tie downs.

The secret to building a good Wayfarer is to find out how it is to be used and then to use the experience we have gained over many years to give a custom built product.

The boat is all glassfibre and polyester resin construction, with un-directional glass cloth and with internal stiffening ribbed structure, accidents, bumps, and damages are easy to repair when using glassfibre construction and most importantly are hard wearing and will give longevity to the boat.
