Winter 2023 – Ned has just completed a ‘Foster10′ made from Huon Pine, this dinghy will be going to Vic and now its time to lay down his boat building tools and continue to focus on his furniture and sculpture.

Ned has been a traditional wooden boat builder, specialising in custom made clinker dinghies built from beautiful Tasmanian timbers. Ned has been built these handcrafted boats for over twenty-six years. We moved from Gordon in December 2016 to Woodbridge where we now run our business and Ned now works between shaping a sculpture to stringing a uke 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.

If you are visiting the Hobart Maritime Museum there is also two of Neds’ Foster10‘ dinghies, one made from Huon Pine and the other from Australian Red Cedar on display.
