Drift's End, 2 Victoria Road, Maldon, Essex, CM9 5HF
Thorough-going yacht and boat restorations and new building, from the 50ft gaff cutters Hardy (1910) and Fife’s 1898 Kismet, the 30ft Albert Strange yawl, Venture, to the humble Abbey Mill punt replica. Laid decks and deck joinery, spar-making, etc. Specialist knowledge of history/restoration of the designs of Albert Strange. Small boats in traditional and clinker-ply construction - many Iain Oughtred designs built, also the very successful Bufflehead cruising sailing canoe. Currently offering two restoration projects, G L Watson’s oldest extant design, the 27ft Spartan of 1886, and Venture’s very close sister Muldonich, by G L Watson & Co, 1930.
