Salterns Boatbuilders are builders of traditional dayboats, dinghies and skiffs, and specialise in gaff rigged craft of all types. We undertake all sorts of specialised construction and repair work, for example, making new lee boards for, and refitting, a 60' Dutch Barge, and we will design and build one-off boats. Based in a small, very traditional yard on the River Hamble, Salterns produce a range of beautiful gaff-rigged boats with excellent performance including the OGA race winning Memory 19, the Tela Dayboat and the Hamble River Skiff. We welcome enquiries about our service and boats.
Sanders Sails has been in business for over 33 years and have regularly been making sails for historic and classic yachts throughout that time. We are one of probably only three lofts who have the in-house experience to offer hand seamed sails, if necessary, and we are pleased to replicate sails of a bygone era. A good example of this was the 'Mathew' where we built a suit of sails in the style of 500 years ago. We work in Cotton Duradon, Clipper Canvas and Polyester to provide authentic looking sails with a high quality of hand finishing. We regularly work with the best designers like Colin
