About Us

Building the world’s finest custom boats for over 30 years

Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders Ltd specialises in the construction of custom built composite and timber vessels, proudly hand crafting a diverse portfolio of unique high value sailing and motor yachts for discerning clients since the mid 1980's.

Our philosophy is to partner together with owners and designers to craft the finest sailing and motor vessels that exceed all expectations. Our uncompromising attitude to quality and world class customer service means we enjoy strong lasting relationships with the vessels we build and their dedicated owners, many of whom return to work with us on subsequent projects.

Operating from our purpose-built facility in East Auckland, our passionate team of talented trades people can build, repair or refit any composite or wood vessel up to 43 metres (140 ft).

Our History

In 1985 Lloyd built his first boat, a Davidson 42 named Teddy Bear. Demonstrating a solid dependable work ethic, a methodical approach to adopting new technology and an inherent drive to achieve excellence, led to a steady flow of orders from clients keen to own a Lloyd Stevenson Boat. An impressive portfolio of new builds and countless refits and repairs later, the reputation for quality and fine craftsmanship remains stronger than ever.

For the next thirty years Lloyd and Tracey Stevenson built a dynamic team of New Zealand’s most talented trades people, building some of the world’s finest boats. These many years have helped LSB develop the experience and capacity to respond to the many and varied projects we have been involved with, from private motor and sail boats, to carbon fibre race yachts and cutting-edge custom super yacht tenders.

In-house electrical, painting and engineering teams enable LSB to provide one stop project management for your new build or refit, and despite the many years of experience LSB prides itself on adopting new technologies around construction whilst retaining the ethos and quality of traditional boat building. 

Our team, experience, and facilities enable us to offer our clients a world class product and service in all areas of water borne vessels.
