About Fine Wooden Boats

We specialize in working with all manner of classic boats, from the smallest dinghies to motor launches


We provide a complete boat care, repair and restoration service; from basic preventative maintenance up to full scale, show quality restoration, and always with the highest quality of workmanship and dedication to precision.

Our work is carried out using a mix of modern and traditional methods and materials with a view to breathing new life into your boat, whilst retaining the integrity of the original build.


Having worked on a wide variety of craft, from steam and electric launches to classic Riva motor launches, we can guarantee you quality service and an aftercare package to suit your needs.

The team is led by Tom Neale. Tom served a full three year woodworking apprenticeship in fine furniture making and trained for a further four years as a boat builder at the renowned Matteri Yard, Lake Como, Italy.

If you have a boat in need of restoration then please contact us so that we can discuss your needs in detail. Normally the client will be responsible for the delivery and collection of the boat to and from the workshop. Depending on the size of the boat and the distance from Huntingdon, we may be able to assist at a reasonable cost.
