Every Kestrel is hand built by our skilled workforce, the result is that every Kestrel is built to high standards and has excellent finishes.
Every Kestrel is built to your own exact specification. This can start with the choice of hull colours and may include extra reinforcement for training groups or extra location points for cruising storage tie downs.
The secret to building a good Kestrel is to find out how it is to be used and then to use the experience we have gained over many years to give a custom built product.
