Since 1980

We stand the test of time. Our history is in the making.

We’re family-run and our business has stood the test of time. Since 1980, our family name has been synonymous with excellence. Founded by Bob and Mary Haines, they set the values we continue to stand by: trust, quality, and tradition. Our father always wanted to build boats and began with canoes in the family garage. Our family holidays were always taken by the sea in North Norfolk and so this is the place we will remain. Building boats that last a lifetime.

We’re proud to be award-winning, but the greatest reward are the relationships we build with you – our customers.

From the moment we stepped onto the boatyard, we were welcomed like family. We ran our hands along the timber and saw she was being built with so much pride by a team with so much passion. We know everyone by name. Our Haines has a pedigree heritage, and we can’t wait to see her again on launch day.
