Working Sail

Working Sail build traditional wooden pilot cutters which are based on the vessels which plied their trade from the Isles of Scilly during the later parts of the19th century. All of our vessel are solidly built using grown oak frames, larch planking and they are bronze fastened throughout, giving them great strength and longevity. The hardwood decks are caulked with oakum and pitched in the traditional fashion while the hardwood capping rail, coachroof, skylight and hatches are bright varnished, making these boats entirely unique in the new boat market of today.

Our vessels are built using only traditional materials and methods of construction to the highest possible standard. Each vessel is solidly built using grown oak frames, larch planking and is bronze fastened throughout, giving great strength and longevity. The hardwood decks are caulked with oakum and pitched in the traditional fashion while the hardwood capping rail, coachroof, skylight and hatches are bright varnished.
