In 1960, talented boatbuilders Roland DesChamp and William Jackson left a boatbuilding firm where they were employed in order to set up their own yard. They knew they were on the right track when they had their first order before the framework of their new boat shop was completed. Since then they have built fishing boats, sailboats, launches and cabin cruisers featuring Cape Island style moulded fibreglass hulls in sizes: 36′ x 15’9″, 34’11” x 15’9″ and 32′ x 12′ from company owned moulds. The company can also finish other hulls; 39’3″ x 18′, 20′, 22′ wide and others up to 50′ long. In the 1980’s, a second generation of building talent came on stream when Roland DesChamp Jr. joined the company.
