John Salthouse Crosses The Bar
Sad to hear that John Salthouse, the founder of Salthouse Boatbuilders passed away on Sunday night. If you have any doubts as to the extent of the mans input to our classic woody fleet just type SALTHOUSE in the WW search box & you’ll be amazed by the craft that John either built or enhanced in his lifetime. Below is a gallery of just some of the craft that Salthouse Boatbuilders have built.
Our thoughts go out to the extended Salthouse family. While he has left us, his legacy will grace our waters for many many years to come.

  1. Very sorry to hear this, and my condolences to the family. John was an absolute gentleman and his word was his bond, a pleasure to work with at any time. An industry leader to be very proud of.


  2. Very sad to hear this news. John Salthouse was a peerless New Zealand boatbuilder and was also patriarch to a wonderful family. His legacy in classic craft is obvious but he was also able to read trends in modern boatbuilding and blend the differences with distinction.
