ABOUT OUR BOAT YARD
Since 1858, C. Blunt Boat Builder has seen five generations of boat builders building and restoring all manner of craft, from ship repair timberwork to small classic rowing boats.
Still proudly owned and operated by the Blunt family, this historical business is situated on Nelson Place, Williamstown, Victoria, Australia and backs onto Hobson's Bay.
Our 30 ton slipway and storage area, with an ever changing boat show, is open
to interested parties with a love for timber craft.
For 150 years, C Blunt Boat Builders, of Williamstown and Geelong, has been launching wooden boats into the waters of Port Phillip Bay, from sea-faring vessels carrying missionaries to the New Hebrides to beautiful race-winning yachts. Now a listed heritage site and run by a fifth generation of Blunts, it is a unique link to Victoria’s maritime past.
