Cygnet Wooden Boats
We invite you back to Cygnet Wooden Boats, a boatyard not open to the general public. The crew are nearing the end of restoration of late 1800’s built, New Zealand Te Uira and have been painstakingly replacing the Kauri Pine planks. If you came to the Maritime Trail in 2021, you will admire the transformation since then.
What looks like a disorganised mishmash of old apple sheds, is actually a haven for the keen wooden boat enthusiast and owner, Jeremy Clowes, who lends a hand in bringing a number of AWBF vessels up to scratch in the lead up to the festivals.
Maritime history enthusiast, Colin Grazules, frequents the shed with a varnish brush while Matt and Iefke (from down the road at Dave’s Shed) earn their money here before going back to Dave’s Shed to get back into their Tarkine build. Come for a wander with Colin, who will share historical stories of bygone eras onboard wooden boats.
