Founded by Ray Walsh and Len Wakefield as Thames Structural Plastics, originally to build fiberglass 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 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.
1962 move to Southend and build the first boat, a Snapdragon 23.
1964 move to Canvey Island Essex and rename the company to Thames Marine.

1981 company close.
