Confidence is born of experience, and your experience with us will leave you confident in the bones of your boat.
"I can't thank you all enough for your help - I have had a few other boat yard experiences and I have talked with a bunch of folks about it, and it is clear now that the generosity you guys show in sharing information and experience is really unique and I am more grateful for it than I can say." - Owner, S/V Sirena

Cabinetry and Interior
Using traditional craftsmanship and skills, we have designed and built many fine interiors, from classic yachts to commercial fish boats and everything in between.
We've won awards at the Victoria Classic Boat Festival, and gained the admiration of the northern troll fleet at the same time because we understand what a boat needs in the way of finish.
"Haven restored my Concordia yawl over a 15-16 month period in 2007-2008. The boat had everything done to it and the workmanship and finishes were without peer. This is not just my assessment. "Vintage" won the Best Restored Sailboat and the Best Overall Sailboat (in 2009 and 2011) at the Victoria Classic Boat Festival against some of the best wooden boats in our region. Simply put, if you want the best finishes (varnish or paint) in the Northwest or the most competent repairs or restoration to your wooden boat, you can be confident that Haven is up to the task." - Owner, S/V Vintage

Rigging & Spar Making
We are active commercial fisherman and sailors; we have traversed thousands of ocean miles cruising the world. Our decades of combined experience at sea make us design and build functional rigs that stand out from the rest.
New aluminum rig for your troller? We've got some refinements that you'll want to see. A picking boom and bridle for your dinghy? No problem. Need a new 90 foot mainmast for your schooner? Just let us know where you want the hounds.

There's a lot going on between thinking "light," "heat," "water," and seeing the lights turn on, furnaces pump heat, and faucets running. We've got the tools, materials, experience, and ingenuity to make sure your boat takes care of you next season.
"Every person in the yard treated the vessel as if she were their own. The attention to detail, the superior craftsmanship, indeed artistry with everything from planks, through-hulls and calking to wiring, plumbing, and painting was excellent. I am thrilled to have found a place that Carmelita will return to for years to come." - Owner, M/V Carmelita
The final answer to all engineering in any vessel is in the propeller and alignment, and we have a lot of experience on many types of vessels to ensure your propulsion is efficient and smooth.

When the needed parts don't exist, we make them, and when we find an off-the-shelf part isn't up to snuff, we make it better. The few things we can't bend, braise, cut, weld, turn, mill, cast, or sculpt - well, you don't need them on your boat.
