CLC Custom Boatbuilding

Would you like a Chesapeake Light Craft design—or any other design—but don't have the time or space to build it? CLC was undertaking commissions for completed boats as early as 1994, and that side of the business has grown steadily over the years. Our custom shop is in demand thanks to our decades of expertise in CAD/CAM design and fabrication, and the depth of talent in our 25-person team. In 2021 we added a 2,000sq.ft. shop devoted entirely to custom projects.

The new shop is helmed by CLC's lead boatbuilder, WoodenBoat School instructor, and degreed wood scientist Andrew Schroeher. (Pronounced SHRAIR-ER)

Over the years we've delivered innumerable boats of all shapes and sizes, and, recently, many CLC Teardrop Campers. Other specialties include boat restoration, paint and varnish, prototypes, plugs, architectural elements and sculpture work, and CNC-milled keels, centerboards, and rudders for yachts large and small.

We are a one-stop shop. Whether you want a quick coat of varnish, you've started your project but misplaced your mojo, or you simply want your project hand-built from scratch by seasoned professionals, we have experience and expertise.
