We appreciate that this website is "creaking at the
seams" - a new website is under development - there are only so many things
one can do!
The St Ayles Skiff is by far our best selling kit, with over 160 purchased in the UK, and nearly
70 between the USA, Canada, Netherlands,
Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
The prototype was launched on October 24th 2009, and the first
Regatta took place in May 2010 with six skiffs.
The first St Ayles Skiff World Championships took place in Ullapool
in July 2013, with crews from the UK, USA, Netherlands, and
Australia. The Champion Club is Coigach, a community of 300 souls
in the Scottish Highlands.
The second Skiffie Worlds takes place Strangford Lough in Northern
Ireland from 25th to the 30th July 2016. We are expecting in
excess of 60 skiffs and 2000 rowers to be present.

Jordan Boats will create plywood kits for almost any boat design.
In the past ten years we have created kits for over 100 designs from
Selway Fisher, Iain Oughtred, Andrew Wolstenholme, Walt Simmons of Duck
Trap, and several kits
for client designs. We also cut kits from designs by Dudley Dix,
George Whisstock and Francois Vivier.
We are also UK agents for the TSCA SCAMP.
Please contact us if you are looking for a plywood kit
for Clinker Ply or Stitch and Tape designs, or need moulds cut for strip
plank or cold moulded designs.
We have moved!
We are now in new premises near Watchett in Somerset.
This location brings us within the delivery area of our marine plywood suppliers
Robbins Timber so the lead time for kits is greatly reduced. We will
usually be able to offer a turnaround of a week for small kits, and two weeks
for larger kits. We will also be starting supplying the timber
requirements for selected kits.
