Every Wayfarer is hand built by our skilled workforce, the result is that each boat is built to high standards and has excellent finishes.
Each Wayfarer is built to the buyers own exact specification. Starting with the choice of hull colour individual specifications could include extra reinforcement for training groups, more stroage, rear seats or even extra cruising storage tie downs points for example.
The secret to building a good Wayfarer is to find out how it is to be used and then to use the experience we have gained over the years to deliver the best custom built product to meet your needs.
The boat is constructed from (GRP) glassfibre, polyester resin and uni-directional glasscloth throughout with internal stiffening ribbed structures. Accidents, bumps, and scrapes are easy to repair in GRP and most importantly it is hard wearing and affords longevity to the boat.
