Devon Wooden Boats Ltd. founded in 2010 by Pete Newbery-Thornton working out of his sister in-laws quadruple garage in Kingsteignton for the first 5 years, we then moved to workshop units at Dolphin Boatyard on the river Dart in 2015 and rapidly grew to the current team of 7 people.

We are now based at Units 1 & 2 Lapthorne Industrial Estate on the Totnes Road between Newton Abbot and Totnes near the Texaco garage. We realised the majority of projects come to us by road rather than water and the rest remain floating in the various local marinas, so although it seems counter-intuitive working from an inland industrial estate we are only 5 miles from Baltic Wharf at the top of the river Dart, and 20-30 mins drive from all local marinas.  We now have 3700 SQFT of workshops for the same running costs of less than half that space shore side, along with the benefit of temperature and humidity stable workshops .
