Thames wooden boatbuilders maintaining the traditions of the past
Congratulations to one of our young employees, Sam Mottram, who has been named by Henley's elite rowing club Leander as their 'most improved athlete of 2013' after a year of gruelling training on and off the river.
We welcome to the boatyard team our newest recruit, Brian Reford, who first came to us as a student for a week's work experience. He made a big impression with his skills and work ethic, and after leaving school he went on to complete Lyme Regis Boatbuilding Academy's flagship City & Guild's course in boatbuilding.
Boats for Sale
We have been given the opportunity to find new homes for two remarkable boats that were privately commissioned and built in our boatyard. The boats can be seen on our Boats for Sale page, but for further information please contact Colin or Lucie Henwood.
Look forward to summer days on the river with our beautiful book by Colin Henwood and photographer Michael English:
