PETER BREEN ANTIQUE & CLASSIC BOAT CO. LTD.
" A small, but steady stream of hand-crafted masterpieces continues to appear, each one enhancing the already impressive reputation of this wooden boat restorer. Each vessel displays almost unbelievable skills in boat-building carpentry, period hardware, impressive metalwork, and flawless finish. Meticulous attention to every detail has produced a stunning result." - Power Boating Canada
Over the past 40 years, Peter Breen Antique & Classic Boat Co. Ltd has become well known across North America for award-winning Total Restorations and Forensic Re-constructions. The team has saved more Muskoka built boats from impending demise than any other restorer in Canada. Reputation has been their
most important asset, and they continually strive to meet the mark of "World Class Wooden Boats".
Custom New Builds
As originals boats have become more scarce, the natural progression was the creation of new vessels fashioned after the originals. This allows for more customization and enables the builder to blend shapes and styles from both past and present to create pieces of art that reflect each customers idea of a perfect boat. No two are ever the same, and the 20th Build is under way.
Repair, Re-finishing & Rigging
From plank replacement to deck repair, to hardware fabrication and upholstery replacement, the team has completed dozens of repairs and refurbishments over the years. In addition, high gloss varnish services with badger hair brushes are routinely performed. Breen Boats also regularly perform engine installations, from modern high out-put power plants to aircraft engines from the First World War.
Peter Breen Antique and Classic Boat Company Ltd. specializes in the restoration of Muskoka built boats and reproduction of such craft. Over the past 45 years, we have completed 46 total restorations, 19 new builds, & countless repairs and refinishings. From Launches to Raceboats, Ditchburns to Baby Gars, multi-year projects to routine varnish and engine installations, we offer wide ranging services to the wooden boat community. Our reputation as one of the Premier Builders & Restorers spans across North America, and our boats can be found in many provinces and states. For an explanation of how we build boats, click here.
