Ned is a traditional wooden boat builder, specialising in custom made clinker dinghies built from beautiful Tasmanian timbers. Ned has been building these handcrafted boats for over twenty-six years. We moved from Gordon in December 2017 to Woodbridge where we now run our business and Ned now works between a boat in build to stringing a uke, shaping a sculpture, or building a piece of furniture.

Ned’s work can be viewed at our workshop/gallery which is opened every weekend 10 am -4 pm we are a working shed so we are available at other times and visits can be arranged by appointment. We have our Gallery flag out at other times when we are about and available. If you are making a special trip to visit, I would advise arranging a visit just in case its golf day.
