My Project – My Boat – My Dream

We will be closed for Christmas from 24th Dec to 1st Jan. Please order in-stock items by 12pm on Friday 18th December for delivery before Christmas. More information.

Coronavirus update: we will continue manufacturing and dispatching orders during the new lockdown and providing technical support but we have had to cancel our November and December courses. Our other courses are unaffected. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Welcome to Fyne Boat Kits, makers and suppliers of wooden boat kits, boat plans and boating equipment. Our range of recreational and performance watercraft includes rowing, sailing and motor boats, canoes and kayaks as well as surfboards and paddleboards.

We accept a few commissions per year for custom-built boats from the designs in our range. We can supply your boat fully finished and kitted out, or you can finish it yourself.

We also offer boat-building courses and we have workshop space available to hire.

All our kits are precision manufactured in our workshop in the English Lake District. We make some of the most advanced kits available, with pre-cut joints and pre-drilled tie holes. All our boat designs are proven by a series of prototypes – the kits go together well and the boats perform even better.

Building a boat is made stress-free by our step-by-step manuals and free expert support by phone and email. Most of our boat kits can be built to a high standard by complete novices.

We use only the highest-quality materials, so that your boat will last decades, not just years. All our timber comes from sustainable sources. Our kits are often cheaper than sourcing all the components yourself.

We can also cut plywood kits to other people's designs, with their permission.
