"Ned Trewartha is one of the rare true shipwright artists. His boats have Soul. All good boats seem somehow to be more than the sum of their parts and Ned's especially have a real quality which sets them apart. They make one think: 'I want this boat!". (Iain Oughtred March 2011)
"Ned is a traditional wooden boat builder, specialising in custom made wooden boats under 20´. We can build to any design using solid timber or plywood. Clinker or carvel construction. A man attuned to the painstaking details that make a wooden boat sing. Ned was of the first graduates of the Shipwright's Point School of Wooden Boat Building diploma course.
