Denman Marine

We are currently experiencing some issues with our phone network. Any calls will more than likely be sent directly to our message bank. We are able to return your calls and will get back in touch with you as soon as we can.


Welcome to the new Denman Marine website.  Our new site went live on 30th August 2013 and despite our best efforts to get every page perfect, there may still be a few small glitches in the first few weeks.  

If you find anything on the website that doesn't work to your satisfaction - maybe a broken link or a picture that won't load - please contact us so we can have it fixed. 

One of the major additions to our new website is the Chesapeake Light Craft section as we are now the Australian agent for their wonderful range of kit boats and plans.  If you want to see some great boats to build have a look at their range here.

Please use the navigation bar on the left to browse through the site. You can either hover over the menus to open secondary menus or just click on the main menu bar.

If you would like to follow us on facebook or watch our videos on YouTube please click on the relevant icon in the top right hand corner.

Enjoy the site and thanks for visiting and supporting our small business.

Denman Marine specialises in custom wooden boat building and repair. We utilise both traditional methods such as carvel or clinker and modern methods such as strip planking, cold molding or clinker plywood.

We can custom build to any design - for example those by Iain Oughtred, David Payne, Paul Gartside, John Welsford, Mark Bowdidge, Francois Vivier, Atkin , Bolger B&B etc.

We are sole Australian agents for Swallow Boats(UK) including the BayRaider, the Australian importer and re-seller of the world renowned Bruynzeel BS1088 Gaboon Marine Plywood (Lloyds certified), Barton Marine products (UK) and Chesapeake Light Craft (USA - kits for kayaks, sailboats, rowing boats and stand up paddle boards).
