Cygnet Wooden Boats

Cygnet Wooden Boats is located in the heart of Cygnet, in a beautiful historic sawmill, that is currently under restoration by owner Jeremy Clowes, Shipright.

Jeremy has been involved in the restoration of many historic and significant wooden boats, including Utiekah 3, Skomer [North Sea Trawler – substantial re-planking], and Adella.

Vinsuette - Pompi boat from Port Phillip Bay was delivered in early 2017 and is under restoration.

Maracoon - 100 tonnne Abalone boat. New fitout at the Old Kempy slipway at Woodbridge.

New boats commissioned, designed and built. 

Rose - Couta boat, designed and build in house, launched 2009.

Majeure - The 20” Couta boat Majeure, completed in February 2017.

The Cygnet and The Swan - Built over approximately 6 months the community grant funded and local community member built St Ayles skiffs have become a significant part of the Port Cygnet Sailing Club community with the skiffs being taken out by groups most days of the week. These projects have been the most rewarding, allowing members of the community to be involved in the construction and use of the two St Alyes skiffs. Many of these people would not usually be able to enjoy the experience of being on the tools or on the water. The Cygnet community has taken ownership of these boats and they have become by far the most used vessels in Port Cygnet.

Mrs Wilson’s Dinghy - Two replica Mrs Wilsons Dinghy’s were completed under workshop instruction and guidance in late 2017. Cygnet Wooden Boats were commissioned to create a workshop held each Monday for 18 weeks for the building of two replica “Mrs Wilson Dinghy’s” by local enthusiasts.

Specialty Furniture, shop fit-out and design - In 2016 Jeremy was commissioned to design and fit out the Cygnet Woodfire Bakehouse shopfront. Using recycled timber, French curve and keystone inspired design, the woodwork in the bakehouse has become a talking point of visitors and locals alike.
