Our customers are our best advertisement and the majority of our service business is generated through word of mouth. In addition to new boat construction, CF Boatworks is involved in a multitude of other projects including yacht refit, restoration, spar building. We pride ourselves in bringing the finest old world craftsmanship to each job.
"I am so pleased with the refit as well as the other work that I cannot thank you enough. You came very highly recommended and now I know why. Your professionalism and attention to detail is rare in your industry..." Peter Casini, MY "Belle Noir".
The Gallery below previews the high level of craftsmanship under Bill Coffman's management lead and direction. Classic sailing yachts such as the 1929 Alden 75' ketch "Karenita", more famously known as Errol Flynn's "Sirocco", and John Alden's 87' 1936 Bermuda yawl "Royono", are among the many restorations that have gained Coffman's notoriety. "Karenita" was completely gutted and structural repairs on the hull were made along with new decks, all interior cabinetry and furniture, and new masts. "Royono" also received interior rebuild plus replacement of steel frames, decks and masts. Bringing these beauties back to life is our expertise and passion.
Our most recent restoration, pictured in the first photos below, is a sweet 1936 Starling Burgess schooner called "Fioretto". From cold molding the bottom to a rebuild on the rig, cabin and cockpit, she is now gracing the waters with that special classic beauty that will live on for the next 100 years.
