Wood For Boat Building

The UK has a long and proud history of producing well constructed beautiful boats. High quality timber is an essential component in the construction of many of the finest boats and Sykes Timber has been a supplier of this to the industry for over 100 years.

Our customers include builders of motor yachts, classic sailing yachts and traditional river boats. We also supply timber for restoration projects and have in the past supplied timber to the restoration of the SS Great Britain and to the UKSA for Gypsy Moth IV.
If you require quality, hand selected timber, for boat interiors, exteriors or hull construction please contact us to discuss your requirements.
We are specialists in the manufacture of Cedar speedstrip, as seen below. This profile has been designed and produced working closely alongside one of the UK’s premier boatbuilders.
