The focus of this website and our business is boats that not only live in your backyard but can be constructed there. Built of wood,by people like you, who with some time, drive, common sense and the ability to use basic tools desire to construct a boat. Beginning with a kit or from scratch using just a set of plans to guide them they have a common goal getting on the water in a craft they have put together themselves.
We have partnered with Noah’s Marine Supply in Toronto to supply our kits, this allows us to offer kits at a much more competitive price point then we are able to on our own. While your kit will come from Noah’s plan support will still be with us should you have build questions we are just a short e-mail or phone call away.
You can order kits directly from Noah’s web site or place an order through this site by placing a deposit using the Buy Now button on the order page. As each kit becomes available directly through Noah' s the kit price will be underlined and appear in blue as do links on most sites, simply clicking on the highlighted kit price will then take you directly to the proper page on the Noah's Marine web site.

We try to use the Facebook page to keep everyone up-to-date on what we are up to in the shop and the designs we may be working on, including building albums of the boats as they are under construction, this can help you gain an understanding of the building process even if the boat you are considering is not posted.
On the Blog some of the boats have write ups about their build and design, and some of the posts are just simply commentary.
