Every Wayfarer is hand built by our skilled work force. The result is that every Wayfarer is built to high standards and has an excellent finish.
Each Wayfarer is built to your own exact specification. We can provide a wide range of options starting from your choice of hull and spinnaker colours to specific racing upgrades such as: wood epoxy foils, tapered spinnaker sheets, high performance fittings, black spars, twin spinnaker poles, hi-spec control lines and a whole host of other tweaking gadgets.
The secret to building a good race Wayfarer is to find out who intends to use it and then to use our experience to build you a custom built boat to suit your size, strength and weight range.
Our race boats are made from glassfibre and polyester resin GRP. We use uni-directional glass cloth and internal stiffening ribbed structures for extra rigidity and strength. Building in GRP means that accidents, bumps, and damages are easy to repair and most importantly it is hard wearing with the result that your race boat will hold its stiffness and therefore it will be able to perform well for many years.
