If you have a boatbuilder near you, you can often buy it from them directly. It is difficult to buy wholesale as they do not like shipping small orders. If you are looking for plywood, get ready for a hefty shipping bill and for it to be nice a scratched up when Bubba delivers it. In those cases, it really is better to pay a little more and get it from a builder (if they will sell it to you... they usually will). If you are looking for just a little bit of teak, West often sails it in their store (though it is rediculously priced up). If you are looking for more, you can get a hobby pak from this site:

Take care.

Owl Lumber, Paxton Lumber, etc... try looking in the yellow pages under lumber or lumber yards. Most will carry some teak.

As was said, if you only need small quantities, check out local shipwrights and marine consignment retailers in your area (NY?). For instance, Newport Nautical Supply in Newport, RI, is where I have purchased misc. teak boards, planks and moldings which I milled for various projects. They keep a small supply at both locations listed.

I have also ordered 4 x 8 sheets of teak veneer marine plywood from a local lumber yard. Most lumber facilities will special order just about anything you ask for . . . at a price of course.

I don't know where you are in NY, but M.L. Condon advertises boatbuilding lumber in the boat mags. I'm a regular at Exotic Lumber as well. They do ship (call Bill at 410.267.0887). Unfortunately, teak isn't cheap to begin with, and by the time you add shipping, you might have to take a second mortgage.

How much do you need?
