Treeve Boats is a traditional working boatyard based in Hayle, Cornwall.

Treeve 16 Mk V

Treeve 16 MK V penberth

Treeve Cove Boats are a modern development of the traditional Cornish fishing boat and although a compact 16ft in length have the strength and carrying capacity of much larger vessels. Catches of 200 Stone (1 1/4 tonnes) on board have been recorded together with man and equipment.

Originally developed for the professional fisherman they are built to specifications that exceed the scantlings laid down in the Lloyds recommendations and are almost double that of EEC requirements. These boats have a long proven track record of hard work and safety in the heavy seas of the South West coast.

Conditions could not be tougher than at Penberth Cove near Lands End, Cornwall. Rugged seas, hard work and the need to be winched up and down the granite slipway every day and in all weathers make terrifying demands on any boat. At Penberth the vast majority of fishermen put their trust in the Treeve Cove Boat.

In order to protect the boat from abrasion by gravel, rocks and coral when beaching, the MK V has a number of special adaptations. A pair of heavy duty bilge keels is fitted to keep the boat upright when beaching. These are protected by a set of galvanised irons, through-bolted with internal lugs. The sterngear and rudder are completely protected from impact and abrasion by an extra heavy duty galvanised iron, skeg and rudder shoes.

We made the decision to base our new 16' Treeve Cove boat in the main on the traditions and skills of this concentrated area. The Mark I 16 was first launched onto the market in 1976/77 with an overall length of 15'9" a beam of 5'9" and a draught of 1'9". This proved to be an immediate success and kept our yard very busy for the next four years when it was time to replace the original mould. This was done by modifying a Mark I with the addition of bilge galvanised flats, 16' overall length and 6' beam.
