Mears Boat Builders

Paul Mears

Devon, England



He loves building boats but gets sea sick, he’s semi-retired but still works 6 days a week, wooden boat building is in Paul Mears blood, it’s his way of life, not just his business.

Mears Boat Builders was one of our first finds at the With Love Project and we’ve looked forward to meeting the family behind the beautiful wooden boats for a good while. This year, the business is celebrating 71 years of success and has moved on to the third generation, as Alex Mears takes over from his father Paul.
