Our Story

Marine Timbers had its genesis over 40 years ago, when Roland Johnson and two friends designed the Fairy Penguin sailing dinghy. First order of business was the production of kits for the Fairy Penguin, and over 600 kits, boats and plan-sets have been sold since. As a consequence Roland gained agencies for gaboon and klinki plywoods, and the business know today as Marine Timbers was born.


Bote-Cote epoxy resin is solvent free. It is safe and easy to use.
Our plywood comes from managed forests and our timber is legally logged and recovered.
