Masts & Spars: Nautical Roots
Here at The Fine Wooden Article Co. we draw on a long passion and experience building, designing and restoring masts and spars of all shapes and sizes, for any application.
Peter R. Meredith, founder, is an accomplished shipwright & design engineer specialised in wooden shipbuilding. Amongst
Meredith's passion for & expertise in sailing fine classic yachts and his drive for perfection has led to a specialisation in the design and build of wooden Masts and Spars, arguably the ultimate form of functional art. With a comprehensive understanding of the rigging and sail handling systems of these fine yachts he brings extensive knowledge of the best & most appropriate finishes and materials: glues, various specialist timbers, varnishing and finishing techniques.
TFWAco creates the very best, long lasting, hardwearing and professional fit-for-purpose end product.
On Site Services
We are more than happy to bring our expertise dock side, even at short notice response, should your yachts, mast or any of its spars unfortunately fail mid-race week or regatta. We effect speedy & structurally sound repair, in double quick time so your yacht can continue to compete in the remainder of the event.
We also carry out onsite service, repairs or complete builds should your mast be too big to travel, or it is more convenient for us to come to the Spars beside the yacht or in the boatyard.
Our facilities can house Masts up to 100ft in any one of our two workshops. These have good access, located a short distance from the motorway network and from Gloucester Docks.

We're keen to liaise with Project Managers, Owners, Designers, Ship Yards, and Surveyors alike, at every level of the projects process, to ensure all aspects & criteria are met.
We therefore have an 'open door' policy, which ensures high levels of customer satisfaction and peace of mind as to the integrity of the end product.
We encourage you to contact us to discuss your requirements, our aim is ever to tender successfully and complete your project.
