Handmade by me.....for you

Rachel Pettitt Designs was established back in 2009 from a love of the coast, colour, creating and the desire to be my own boss! 

Spending time in my white washed studio with 'Cooper' my ball crazed Border Terrier* for company, I work with seaside coloured paints, simple wooden shapes and seaside memories. My many day trips to Aldeburgh and Southwold on the Suffolk coast and numerous Cornish holidays have inspired me to design and make sailing and fishing boats which are fun, cute and pleasing on the eye.

I source as much of my work materials as I can from small independent UK suppliers and all the boat bases are cut out by myself from birch plywood. 

My little personalised boats have journeyed all over the world to customers....some heading off in fleets....but mostly single vessel adventures!

I hope this year will be another busy time at the boatyard, with lots of lovely orders and happy customers!
