About UsThe Petticrows company was established in 1896, in Burnham-on-Crouch, the traditional home of long established Royal Yacht Clubs.
For over 30 years Petticrows have built and developed International Dragon class keelboats. To date over 800 Dragons have been produced in the yard. Petticrows Dragon production was originally masterminded by double Olympic gold medallist Poul Richard Hoj-Jensen and since 2005 it has been under the guidance of expert boat builder and former Dragon World Champion and Gold Cup winner, Tim Tavinor.
In 2021 Petticrows relocated to Cascais, Portugal, a village that has been a big and popular part of the recent history in the world of Dragon sailing.
The team will count with the familiar face of Pedro Rebelo de Andrade and with his extensive experience in Dragon sailing. Pedro is joined by Henrique Brites who takes care of the operation.
It is the unique blend of craftsmanship, and cutting-edge technology in design and construction, which has kept Petticrows at the front of the fleet.
