Grove Pond Yachts takes great pride in using the same construction methods and tools as used over 100 years ago. Original materials are used for the hulls and deck and are selected for their colour & grain configuration to create a wonderful but subtle contrast. Each boat is then given ten coats of varnish, the final layer being hand-polished to bring out the full lustre of the material.
They have all the fittings and adjustments found on full sized racing yachts and are hand crafted in brass as exact replicas of those found on model racing yachts. To maximize performance, masts and spars are crafted from light weight materials to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible. Our boats come standard with fine cambric cotton sails as originally used to give that traditional look but can be fitted with the state of the art modern sails from one of our recommended professional sail makers.
Their creator Cliff Grove bestows a unique character and soul to each of his creations. Their beauty only being matched by their sailing ability. Find out more about how Grove Pond Yachts started.
