Building Process

Wood for starting new boat

Jointly we discern your dreams, needs and hopes for your new boat.

Roeboats will build the best boat for you. The boat building process starts with initial discussions on what you want from your boat. It takes time to refine your dreams into a beautiful, workable and affordable boat. At Roeboats we take the time to create your vision, build your boat and realise your inner serenity best found afloat.

Creating your vision

Once your overall vision is created, it is time for you to decide, with our guidance, on an existing design that may suit you or alternatively Roeboats has an extensive network of designers that we can engage to create your perfect boat.

Crafting your design and vision into a beautiful handbuilt boat

Tiernan will then select the finest materials and skillfully build your boat. Providing you with regular updates throughout the build. You are very welcome and in fact encouraged to visit the workshop at any time. This gives you an opportunity not only to try the boat on for size but it also gives you an insight into how your boat goes together. Often times a workshop visit will lead to improved functionality or styling of your boat. Once complete we are happy to spend the time getting you completely familiar with your new boat. We are also very happy to help you whenever you have a query regarding your boat in the future.
