Leisure Boats

Steeped in Tradition, Built with Today’s Technology

In 1955, James D Rosborough started refurbishing retired fishing schooners into pleasure boats. It was through this period that he learned how to design majestic wooden sailing vessels, each custom built for their owners with every item thought out in detail and brought together to work with the rest of the boat and her systems.

Growing up on the wood chips of boat shops, Bob Rosborough brings the old school feel of custom boat building to our new platforms combining high-speed boats built using the latest in composite construction with the feel of a custom built yacht.

Now, our Rough Water™ RHIBs and HammerHead hard-shell craft are semi-custom in nature allowing us to tailor you boat to match your personal boating style.
