Thames Marine (UK)
1959-

Founded by Ray Walsh and Len Wakefield as Thames Stuctural Plastics, originally to build fibergass components for a number of industries. The emphasis turned to the manufacture of boats early on. The first sailing yacht was the 23' SNAPDRAGON (1962). Expansion came in a number of stages and the the company started to build it's own factory at Canvey Island, Essex. (1965)
As TSP Ltd., the company began doing the moldings for other boat builders; Thames Marine became the name for selling their own models.
There was also a branch that built power boats and another to build the Prout line of catamarans.
No longer in business.
