All about Birchwood brand


Birchwood Yachts started its activities in Nottingham, England, in the early 1960s. At that time Birchwood was building wooden dayboats for water skiing and day trips. The shipyard was to become famous in the following decade with the design of a whole range of inboard powered houseboats, suitable for both coastal and inland navigation. The first models did not exceed 26 feet in length. However, according to the standards of the time, they could accommodate a family and two children on a cruise.


However, boats of the time did not necessarily have to provide all the comfort that you're used to finding in an apartment or a house! Times are changing and simplicity was the order of the day. The 1980s saw an increase in the length of Birchwood productions with the Birchwood 31, Birchwood 33, Birchwood 35 and Birchwood 37, the largest being equipped with a flybridge. They also had a very successful TS44, the brand's bestseller with its 3 cabins and a decent engine. With 375 HP on the shaft, the consumption of this liveaboard boat stays reasonable at less than 30 litres per hour at low speed.


All these boats were designed for use at sea as well as on rivers. The following decade saw Birchwood launch its largest boats: the Birchwood 48 Challenger and the Birchwood TS 54. This last model sounded the death knell of the shipyard which voluntarily ceased trading in 2002. Since then, a new Birchwood company has been created and is setting out to distribute a range of motor yachts now made in China.
