boats that work...

Fretwater Boatworks is a small eclectic boat shop. On a mountain. In the desert. Far from water. We specialize in Grand Canyon Dories, their relatives, derivatives, and associated accoutrements. And random other boat like things. We blend heritage and tradition with newer ideas and crosscurrents, never doing it quite the same twice. We build them for hard rugged use, and we love our work. You can’t beat this place for fun.
