Anchor Boatworks is a premier builder of Palmer Customs - traditional cold-molded sportfishing or cruising boats. We work closely with each customer to build their perfect boat based on performance and design wants and needs. Anchor is passionate about our work - where old-school craftsmanship is enhanced by modern day processes and procedures. Construction is a balance of a cold-molded wood hull built with composite materials for a light, but very strong boat. Our boats are built to take the punishment of rougher seas without sacrificing the quality construction or performance excellence.

Palmer Customs designs range from 25 feet to 45 feet accommodating either outboard or inboard diesel motor configurations. Our graceful lines are made with the strength of okoume wood, fiberglass and Kevlar fabrics, and the industry’s best epoxy resins.


 We start with the customer's needs and wants to  design a boat that meets performance and aesthetic requirements. Many years and generations of experience come together to make sure every detail of every aspect is built to the highest level of quality. Ideas start on paper and then head to the computers, where we look at everything from weight studies to ensure the best ride, to structural integrity for hull strength and longevity. As ideas and thoughts become images and design drawings, the build process begins, with innovation and quality designed and built into every hull.
