Discover the Pinnacle of Boat Carpentry with Foster's

In your search for top-tier carpentry services in Florida, you’ll find that not all carpenters are created equal. Marine carpentry demands a level of expertise, precision, and uncompromising standards that go beyond conventional carpentry. Many may claim to be “professional” carpenters, but only a select few possess the specialized skills required to excel in the marine industry.

Becoming a master marine carpenter is a journey that takes years of unwavering dedication and effort. It is not a profession one can simply step into without the right experience. At Foster’s, we take immense pride in having some of the finest master marine carpenters in Fort Lauderdale, and beyond. Our reputation for excellence in custom carpentry is built on their unparalleled expertise.

Some carpenters may offer lower prices by employing subpar materials, such as ordinary plywood instead of marine-grade plywood. While this approach reduces their costs, it ultimately places yacht owners in a disadvantageous position. Using non-marine grade materials compromises the vessel’s integrity and may lead to unforeseen issues, incurring additional expenses.

Any master marine carpenter understands that marine-grade materials are essential to withstand the constant stresses encountered by yachts. Conventional plywood simply does not meet the rigorous standards expected of marine vessels. Marine-grade plywood adheres to strict criteria, including minimal voids between layers, the quality of adhesive used to bond layers, and the wood’s density and porosity. These factors are paramount in marine applications, ensuring durability and longevity.

Why entrust your yacht to someone who cannot distinguish between marine and regular plywood? Or worse, someone who knows the difference but still opts for inferior materials? With Foster’s, you can expect meticulous craftsmanship paired with top-quality materials—the “Foster’s Touch” that delivers precisely what you desire. We never compromise on quality and always strive for excellence in every project we undertake.

At Foster’s, we understand that your yacht is more than just a vessel; it’s a statement of your lifestyle and a reflection of your discerning taste. That’s why our master marine carpenters are not only skilled in their craft but also dedicated to understanding and fulfilling your unique vision. Whether it’s a custom cabinetry project, an intricate inlay work, or a complete interior overhaul, we bring your ideas to life with precision and artistry. Our commitment to using only the finest marine-grade materials ensures that every detail of your yacht’s carpentry is both aesthetically pleasing and built to last. Choose Foster’s for a carpentry service that elevates your yachting experience to new heights of luxury and sophistication.

These guys do very good work. They repaired some fiber glass and an anchor plate along with adding a coat of paint to the hull.

We have used Fosters for years and its definitely the best company out there for fiberglass, paint and refits. Dennis is always professional and we highly recommend them for any needs in our yacht industry.

Fosters Yacht Service is my preferred company to use for yard maintenance while in Ft. Lauderdale. Dennis, Erick, and Mark know the industry and how to get things done. Fosters keeps to their word and deadline. Highly recommended.

We started with Foster’s to repair some structural hull issues. They exceeded expectations with the repairs. We also had them do multiple repairs throughout the vessel from exterior paint to interior carpentry. The fit and finish have been amazing.

As a marine industy professional it has been my direct experience to have this Group (Foster's Y/S) care for and upgrade my families Hardin 45 ketch. Everyone at Foster is a team member at Your disposal if required. We have found that Foster's high quality work in conjunction with Great customer service are the foundations found here. "Trade Winds" will be back next year for some further upgrades. Thank You for helping us sail away...

Dennis Foster and his shop are amazing. My boat had extensive fiberglass damage which was made worse by another repair shop. Dennis came to the rescue. Boat came back brand new and faster than promised. If you need any fiberglass work done, don’t go anywhere else! Thank you Dennis and team!
