My Project – My Boat – My Dream

Build your own wooden boat on one of our five or ten day boat-building courses. Spaces are available from September.

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.

All our boats can be built at home with minimal tools or experience. If you lack the space or tools, simply hire a slot in our fully-equipped workshop.

The quickest and most fun way to get the bulk of the work done is to join one of our five or ten day boat-building courses. You'll build your own boat at our workshop among like-minded builders and you'll leave with all the skills and confidence to complete your boat at home.

We also accept commissions for custom-built boats from the designs in our range. We can supply your boat fully finished and kitted out or just ready for you to paint and varnish it yourself.

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.
