Steam Boats, steam engines and models
and steam fittings . . .

Welcome.  We've been building steam boats here at Rappahannock Boat Works for over ten years now.   In 2004, we added Tiny Power so we could supply good, reliable steam engines and engine models to our customers.  And in 2010, we added steam fittings--valves, gauges, pipe fittings, etc.  Here's what we offer:

Boats - We build custom-designed wood steam launches up to 30 feet in length. We build from the ground up, partial builds, or outfit existing fiberglass or wood hulls.

Engines - We build full-size steam engines for boats, and we also sell our engine castings for the do-it-yourselfer.

Model Engines - We sell steam engine model kits and hot air engine models for the hobbyist.

Boilers - We sell ASME code boilers manufactured to our specifications.

Steam Fittings & Accessories - We sell reflex water gauges, lubricators, drip oilers, valves, pressure gauges, injectors, pipe fittings, etc.--everything you need for your steam project.

Name Boards - We design and make wooden name boards for boats, or paint boat names on hulls.

EACH BOAT WE BUILD IS UNIQUE

Our steam launch projects are always one-of-a-kind, featuring unique styles, colors and components.


EACH ENGINE IS A WORK OF ART

You'll get quality and great attention to fine detail with each engine we build.
