Although the main work is restoration, Tom Neale has built many boats. The largest being the Super Launch shown at the 2016 London Boat Show. Built from the finest materials, this is probably the best river launch ever made in the UK. The most recent project is a Super Yacht Tender/Runabout 'Azzurro'
The focus of Fine Wooden Boat is the restoration of all types of classic boats, no matter what state the craft is currently in. We will take an overview of the vessel's state and advise you on what needs to be replaced or renovated and how we will proceed. Examples of restoration projects are shown in the Gallery
A fine example of our work is Lady Lina, a 1964 Riva Ariston.
Our workshop facilities allow us to repair, rebuild and even fabricate replacement parts where required. The Gallery pages show some of the projects we have completed and examples of custom made parts
For example we cast fittings in bronze, mould fibreglass and shape wood using both air presses and fine carpentry.
