Restoration of Caprice

 

Caprice

Built in 2014
Double Cockpit Runabout
18' length
52" beam  
6" draft
Substructure plywood
Vancouver, BC, Canada


Caprice is a home built boat, originally she was built in the 1960's. The hull was built using plywood then glassed and painted white. During our restoration we decided to plank the hull in Honduras mahogany. The result is stunning. A new deck was also installed using the same matched Honduras.

 

Euphemia

 

Euphemia

Built in 1927
Type of Boat
50' length / 11' beam  / x' draft
Construction Method
Victoria, BC, Canada


Euphemia is a great example of a boat that will never get the title "restored" Since her beginning she has been maintained to a high degree. Every year a section of the boat would be serviced with great craftsmanship.

 

Teak Bird

 

Teak Bird

Built in 1963
Designer BillGarden
50' length
Built in Hong Kong at the Cheoy Lee yard

Restored
Victoria, BC, Canada


TeakBird was a joy to work on. All the materials chosen by the customer were top quality and the craftsmanship was to be of equal standard. It was a perfect fit for us. During the restoration Teak Bird received a new John Deere engine, prop and shaft. All the tanks were built in stainless. All new deck beams, Carlins and solid teak decking. Basically the whole boat is new with the exception of the majority of the hull framing,  planking and keel. She now lives in Seattle.
