New Boat for the New Year.

Construction has started on a new wooden boat here at Roeboats. It’s an 18′ Faering that will also have a sailing rig. It’s very similar to the boats I’ve built for Game of Thrones and Vikings TV series. The client will use it as a day sailor and camp cruiser and has some ambitious plans for cruising the west coast of Ireland. Below are a few photos of progress so far.


Firstly we start with some sheets of Llyod’s register approved Okuome ply.


And then these are scarfed jointed. For long scarfs like these I use and electric planer finished with a belt sander which gives and nice clean feather edge.


These are then epoxy glued together to form 20′ planks of plywood from which I’ll cut the actual planks out of.

If you would like to partake in the excitement of having your own beautiful wooden boat custom built for you please give me, Tiernan, a call on +353 28 38973 or mobile +353 86 1586937 or use the contact page. The next building slot is already booked so don’t delay.
