Our History

JF Boat Building Ltd was founded in January 2022 where it was set up as a limited company by the current owner and now director Jamie Franklin. Previous to this the company was run as a sole trader doing mobile joinery work which was set up during the pandemic in 2020.

Prior to this, Jamie worked at another bespoke boat-building company for almost 2 years. We are now based at Wharf Farm Barn Marina in Kings Bromley, in the small city of Lichfield. We aim to offer a bespoke build experience covering every aspect of the fit-out through to the finished item.

We use award-winning Tim Tyler shells. We have a dedicated workshop for all our joinery and engineering needs, with the addition of the dry dock below for painting works.
