We offer a full-service experience, boats are hauled out, maintained, safely stored, and launched upon request.

The Wooden Boatshop offers secure and convenient out-of-water shelter for recreational craft.  During winter and spring, the boatyard is near capacity, with Couta Boats and Launches receiving their annual maintenance before returning to the water for the warmer months.

We handle it all for you!

The full working boatyard includes two travel lifts and three large, adjustable, tri-axel road trailers specifically designed for hauling out and launching Couta Boats, along with other traditional wooden boats.

“The Wooden Boatshop have been undertaking the slipping and maintenance of T’Ellen, our Beneteau Oceanis 34, for the last two years. This has involved more than just antifouling, polishing and engine service as we requested several technical upgrades to our boat during that time. The Wooden Boatshop have made recommendations that have improved our enjoyment of sailing.

Tim Phillips and The Wooden Boatshop’s exceptional boating knowledge instils confidence in the maintenance performed, and the boat has been very reliable while under their care. Their service runs to taking our boat from its berth at Blairgowrie Marina to Queenscliff to be slipped and then returning to our berth on completion. Nothing is too much trouble and their advice is excellent.

I am happy to highly recommend the team at The Wooden Boat Shop for those boat owners that want high quality service.”
