Jim Stone, Tristan’s father has been involved in boatbuilding and the marine industry in the U.K. for over 40 years. He is now based on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada.

He has access to mills which produce high end vertical grain Sitka Spruce, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Western Red Cedar and Douglas fir. Containers of timber are shipped direct from the West coast to our boatyard in Salcombe where we keep a large stock.

He is pleased to quote for custom cut lengths for spars, decks and rebuilds. Lengths are available up to 40 feet. On this site you can view photographs of timber species and how they have been applied to different projects. Also timber we have supplied to various companies and boatyards.
