Yacht Construction


Below are some of our recent creations.

"GLORY", Taylor 54'


This beautiful Jim Taylor designed 54' fast cruising, ultra light, traditional looking sloop is anchored and races out of Marion, MA. She was custom built over 18 months by Olsen Marine, Inc in the true spirit of tradition with the classic looks of a meter boat from the early part of the twentieth century, but using modern construction techniques and materials. GLORY’s composite hull was built in conjunction with Aquidneck Custom Composites using cedar veneers over foam core with fiberglass and epoxy reinforcements. After completion of the hull, Olsen Marine built and installed a completely custom designed interior of beautifully hand-crafted cherry, teak and cedar with the traditional allure of a classic yacht and the efficiency of a modern lightweight racing boat.

Hull Light


Another unique project came to us from a premier architect on Cape Cod. A client wanted a hull shaped lengthy ceiling light fixture to throw indirect light over a dining room area. Just as we would build a boat we framed the hull complete with bulkheads to the configuration desired. Shaped the sides, added a thin fiberglass layer to hold the form and completed it with accent trim pieces. We are awaiting a final installation photo from the decorators.
