The current range of completed wooden boats and kit boats,
offered by SeaBird Boats are those which have been developed over 65
years of traditional wooden boat building.Originally under the name of Chippendale
Craft and run by Jack Chippendale we have been making traditional
and modern wooden boats since 1947 and have been in the forefront
of the development, design and manufacture of a number of new classes
of racing dinghies, including National 12s, Merlin Rockets, Flying Fifteens,
Fireballs and International Fourteens as well as the introduction of the first 505,
the first Osprey and the first Kestrel.
When Jack Chippendale transferred the business to Ted Bird,
in Rye, East Sussex, the range of hand-built, quality boats continued.
Ever expanding, SeaBird Boats now regularly ships products into Europe and
across the globe. It is owned and managed by Jeff Baker and as well as the
range of boats you can view here, specialises in supplying our very popular
range of wooden kit boats.
