Brion Rieff Boat Builders, Inc.


Construction and restoration of wooden boats from 8 to 80ft, wood spars, and custom bronze hardware


Tradition and Technology

Whether you are looking to build a new boat using the latest cold-molding or resin-infusion technologies--or restoring a plank-on-frame classic--turn to Brion Rieff Boat Builders Inc. From design to construction, we can build any wooden boat up to 80ft in our 4000 sq ft shop in Brooklin, Maine. With more than 45 years of experience, Brion Rieff and his team are leaders in their field.

We offer complete design/build capabilities--see Rieff Designs--and also build boats to plans by established designers such as Herreshoff, Alden, Bruce King, Antonio Dias, and others (see Herreshoff Designs and Our Projects).  See Restorations & Spars for our work in restoring classic boats, advanced wood spars, and custom bronze hardware.

About Brion Rieff

Brion Rieff started sailing on Long Island Sound at the early age of five. He began a successful racing career at 14. Brion's experience with racing big sailboats has given him a unique perspective on the boat-building business as he enjoys sailing almost as much as design and building.
