With more than 26 years of experience under his belt as a shop foreman and master carpenter for companies such as Davis Yachts, Calyber Boatworks’ owner, Trevor Sherrick, knows what it takes to build a true Carolina-style hull. Sherrick started Calyber 11 years ago to produce small fishing boats with the same fit-and-finish as much larger yachts.
Calyber takes tremendous pride in its workmanship and goes to great pains to make sure that its employees share the same ethic. “The key people in our company are all seasoned veterans of the boatbuilding industry,” says Sherrick. “They’ve been hand picked because of trusted associations in the past. It starts with our head of lamination, who has over 40 years of experience, and runs right on through to our custom tower fabricator, whom we’ve worked with for almost 20 years.”
