Nick Thorpe Boat Building

Styles of Boats: Semi-traditional

Although keeping the lines of a traditional boat, it offers a larger rear deck space by having an open roof area over the engine.

Specification

Semi-traditional style boats are built from BSAU 43EN steel, with a 4mm roof, 5mm cabin sides, 6mm hull sides and a 10mm base.

Each boat is finished with two coats of bitumen and two coats of red/grey oxide. Custom paint finishes, engine fitting and full interior fitouts are available. Please contact for more details.
