Denman Marine Newsletter

Hi, Happy New Year! and welcome to the first Denman Marine newsletter of 2019.

It has already been a very busy start to the year for us at Denman Marine, with several new builds well under way, including an exciting restoration on our immediate horizon, not to mention our ever expanding catalogue of Chesapeake Light Craft kit boats that are flying out the door year round.

Swing by our booth at this years Australian Wooden Boat Festival to catch up and find out more about what we have on the go as well as our kit catalogue. Alternatively, you can always jump on our frequently updated website for our latest news, including sales and further information of our Chesapeake Light Craft kit catalogue.

From assistance with the construction of a kit, through to the custom construction of your dream wooden boat, we look forward to working with you in 2019.

If there is anything you would like to see in our future newsletters, discuss, query or order, please contact us via the contact form on our website.

The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is held every two years and is not only one of the largest in the world, but recognised as the largest wooden boat festival in the Southern Hemisphere.

The festival comprises a huge turnout of wooden boats from all over the world as well as demonstrations, displays, live entertainment, music, arts, exhibitions, and activities, not to mention the stunning Parade of Sail on the River Derwent.

It is run almost entirely by volunteers and remains open to the public free of charge.

Denman Marine is proud to be returning to the Australian Wooden Boat Festival this year. If you happen to be attending, we would love for you to drop by our booth for a chat. Our stall will be at the Maritime Marketplace in PW1, site 50-51.

For further details on the event, see the Australian Wooden Boat Festival Program and website. We look forward to seeing you there.
