Bespoke service means that your boat will be as individual as the ideas that created it.

No two Piper boats are exactly alike; even if the only difference is down to the aesthetics of the final colours chosen and the name you christen it with. We consciously make the creative process as collaborative as you want it to be.

So whatever personal preferences, little luxuries or finishing touches you have in mind, please speak up.

We will do what it takes to deliver a real home from home on the water.
