  Idyllically situated at Freshwater on the Percuil River in the Fal estuary in Cornwall, at J.P. Leach Yacht and Boat Builders we offer a full range of boatyard services, from new builds to repairs, restorations, and maintenance.

With more than a quarter of a century's tradition of dedication to quality craftmanship, we can offer meticulous attention to detail at surprisingly competitive prices.
Our wooden builds range from our first clinker built dinghy to a bespoke 23' Italian Riva-style speedboat, and include the latest 13 St. Mawes One Designs . In GRP we specialise in the popular Bass boat 540 of which we have built and customised 7 to order in the last two years. Other projects have included 5 ocean rowing boats to compete in the Atlantic Ocean Challenge races. Recent restorations include "Aileen", St. Mawes One Design no. 1, and "Smuggler", a 19' motor launch dating from 1912, probably the first ever motor boat in the estuary (originally named "Lorna Doone").

Our genuine lifelong love of all boats whether they be oar, sail or power, GRP or wooden, traditional or modern means that you can trust us to deliver the quality craftmanship and care that your boat deserves.
