A Perfect Fit for Your Boat
Cruising Concepts designs and crafts some of the highest quality and aesthetically pleasing companionway doors that can be found on the modern market. With an experienced and detailed blend of efficiency and precision crafting, Cruising Concepts products can serve customer needs for any make and model of sailboat. Over multiple decades we’ve refined our ability to construct top line doors from several different materials, decreasing costs and ensuring the customer gets the finished product quickly and easily.
At Cruising Concepts teak wood is our material of choice. Its strength to weight ratio ensures that companionway doors built from teak add a minimum of additional weight to the boat but remain sturdy and secure against accidents, buffeting, and other hazards of maritime life. Our doors are cut at ¾” thickness or better to ensure stability and durability. The unique properties of teak wood facilitate close fitting mounts for screw attachments, preventing leaks and increasing the lifetime of the doors.
Latches, hinges, and door handles are fully supported by our custom designs. Cruising Concepts utilizes hinges specially placed to limit unwanted exposure while maintaining functionality. Our companionway doors can be easily and quickly inserted or removed from the hinges, which are attached directly to our individually crafted teak fascia. We provide additional teak finishing for covering lock plates so the installation blends perfectly into the customer’s preferred aesthetic.
All orders are processed by a personally managed digital design program, ensuring a full hands-on approach to the crafting process from the moment the order is received until the companionway doors are packaged and sent. Our design-driven mechanized carving system can create patterns of the highest detail and intricacy; Cruising Concepts is proud to offer its customers the opportunity to request any inlaid decoration they might desire. The completed doors are hand varnished, or left unaltered for a classic look per the customer’s request.
