did my apprenticeship as a sheetmetal worker 1st class at a
local engineering business working for them for seven years.
then started Hart Metal Finishers in 1993, doing mainly stainless steel
and general engineering work as well as repairing and modifying aluminum
In 2002 I started HMF Boats as there were very few boats being custom
made to customer requirements.
My son Nathan joined the business in 2012 and in 2016 he finished his
apprenticeship and shares the same passion as myself to create each boat
to suit the requirements of the individual.
We now have 5 different style hulls:
Mongoose (¾ V)
Rustler (Full V)
can be made to custom length, width, side height and fitted out however
the customer wants.
We have built boats from 2.4m to 7.5m as pleasure craft through to work
and tender boats built to survey standards
