Hand-crafted wooden boats and bespoke joinery

We build beautiful wooden boats of a vast range of types and styles up to 25 feet long

The Beautiful Boat Company specialises in making traditional wooden craft, to order. Working closely with our clients to agree specifications, we can build to almost any design imaginable, from a luxury lake boat to a coastal cruiser. Based in the stunning Jurassic Coast town of Lyme Regis, creations to date include the “Rascal“, a high-speed 1930’s two seater “roadster” launch, which we are also able to build as a four seater model and the Beaulieu Scow, a traditional sailing dinghy for a crew of one or two.

We are also delighted to have worked with Hestercombe Gardens to build a replica of a 1904 punt, from photographs taken more than a hundred years ago on one of their lakes. The punt launched at Hestercombe on Tuesday August 28th 2018 – see our media page for more details. We can build up to 25 feet long, and ship worldwide.

Alongside commissions for new builds, the team is also happy to undertake restoration, renovation and rejuvenation work as well as smaller projects inspired by the water. In Lyme Regis, we offer a mobile harbourside maintenance service for yachts, dinghies and other craft, helping to speed you on your way if you encounter joinery or related technical problems at sea. When time allows, we are happy to extend our joinery services to non-marine work, currently in Dorset, Devon and Somerset.
