Boatworks Roundup – Our Top Picks!

This is Patterson Boatworks Roundup – featuring our favourite builds and projects. With SO MUCH to celebrate we picked our top projects to share with you!

Our Version of Black Beauty

In 2017 we were commissioned to build a 8 meter foam composite hybrid motor launch finished in metallic black. Head boat builder Hamish says “She was a joy to build from start to finish, with many exciting challenges. She looks stunning in the Italian sunshine!”

Windermere 27

It’s been a busy year for our Windermere 27 – from her being the centre stage at London Boat Show to her gleaming in the light at London On the Water and Windermere Boat Show.

Our beautiful Windermere 27 is now at her new home on the Norfolk Broads.

7.5m Whaler Type Rowing Boat

In 2017 we were approached by The Outward Bound Trust to design and build a beautiful but very stable 16-man rowing boat. Patterson Boatworks worked closely with Naval Architect Jack Gifford on this amazing project.

This a commission for 10 boats for The Outward Bound Trust, so Patterson Boatworks decided that GRP would be the way forward so we have developed and built hull and interior moulds to enable us to build them at pace over the next few months.

The boats needed to be bombproof as they will be living outside on the water 365 days a year and will be used by various groups – from school groups to college and graduate groups.

The first one went out two weeks ago. It looks amazing and is doing as we envisiged – helping young people develop a passion for the outdoors.

We are polishing up the mould for number two…
