A “ships mast ashore”

A flagpole, an ancient form of communication, represents a “ships mast ashore”. For thousands of years mariners and seafarers have used flags to transmit messages, and a flagpole today conjures all the romance and nostalgia of a life by the sea.

Superior in every sense!

The Wooden Boatshop Flagpole is traditional and superior in every sense. We use laminated structural grade timbers with penetrating epoxy wood preserver, finished white with two coats of marine quality two pack paint. This combination packs a punch! The traditional timber pole looks and feels better, and the finish ensures it can withstand the full spectrum of weather conditions – the best of both worlds.


Add 4" for tabernacle to calculate height of pole above ground. The flagpole should generally be the higher than the building or structure nearby.

“My Wooden Boatshop flagpole has been standing proud for 37 years!”


Please Note
Ingress of freshwater into the wood and/or end grain of the flagpole will cause rot, an intact paint film will protect the flagpole from water ingress. We advise that a new flagpole should be initially painted at three years from new & thereafter, annually visibly inspected and as a rough rule of thumb painted every five years. The thru bolts require sealing to eliminate any water ingress.

Water sprinkling systems are not recommended in the vicinity of a flagpole. It is recommended that the halliards be endless, with adjustable Ronstan PNP 16 sister clips.
