Wiggers Custom Yachts Ltd.

Overview

From company web site: ANDY WIGGERS, born in Groenlo, Holland in 1950, was the youngest of eleven children. His father, a master of the crafts, owned and managed a local furniture and a wooden shoe factory. This is where he was first introduced to woodworking, a very special skill developed and refined with the teaching of a master. In 1960 the family moved to Canada and settled in the city of Oshawa. After his studies were finished, he sought employment at Whitby Boat Works and was a finish woodworker there. With a short diversion as a home builder in the early seventies, he returned to what he loved then and pursues to this day, ‘woodworking’, as a craftsman extraordinaire. From humble beginnings, providing a mobile service in woodworking repairs and replacements for boats of all sizes, he diligently followed his desired career of choice. As the business prospered, he built a shop, first in Oshawa and later moved the business to his present quarters in Bowmanville where many of his accomplishments have been born. Today, his expertise extends to manage a very talented team of long term employees in all the specialized fields that make a boat building and repair business viable. His list of specialized building is impressive. Notwithstanding partial builds and very drastic upgrades and changes to some very fine yachts, the following is a list of some of the vessels that he built from the start to finish.
