Purpose and Adventure

Quality and Strength

We design and build with passion, creativity and intricate care

The Auk

An Ian Oughtred designed dinghy, the Auk makes a fantastic yacht tender, being easy to tow, stow and has great stability and carrying capacity for its size.

We offer the Auk in traditional larch on oak, copper riveted, giving enormous strength and classic looks.

Or from Elite marine ply with cedar thwarts for an extremely light tender, weighing in at just 29kg!

The Auk can be built from 7’6″ to 10′ in length, with or without sailing option, with a choice of lug or gunter rig.
