Started in 2005, Barracuda Boatplanters is run by   Alan Barraclough

Having always had an interest in kit cars and fibreglass for some fifty odd years so on my retirement from being Self Employed in the Fire Safety Industry yes somewhat far removed from Fibreglass.

Initially asked by his wife to make her a half boat planter on my 65th birthday so away he went into the garage beavering away making a wooden version of what would then become the first design which then moved on to making the first buck of the soon to be 1/2 boat planter and some 3 months later I had my first ever Boat Planter

From there things seemed to take off first a friend asked for one which they took to their caravan where orders came from other caravan owners and eventually from the Site Owner

I have since added to my planters with a Larger Dory type Full Boat and also a small double ended Yorkshire Clinker Coble

The business has just grown beyond all expectations sending boats to Malta Canada Denmark USA. Ireland but to name just a few places

So what started as a hobby / pastime as now turned into a thriving business.
