Tawhiri Boats is a small family owned boatyard, concentrating on repairs and building wooden boats with a classic appearance, designed by John Welsford.
The components of each boat are assembled by experienced craftsman hands to a very high-quality and beautifully finished boats, nearly maintenance free. The combination of marine plywood bonded and laminated with epoxy gives a very rigid and immensly strong structure. A unique asset rather than a mass produced polyester boat.
The 3 sailboats in our range - Navigator, Pathfinder & Whaler are a perfect choice for anyone who wants to participate in the more and more popular becoming Raids.
In addition to a builders license from John Welsford , we also act as an official distributor for the building plans and publications of John Welsford Small Craft Design.
