About Us

New Found Metals, Inc. has been selling high quality hand-cast marine hardware for over 30 years.

Located in Port Townsend, Washington, New Found Metals is part of a larger marine trades and wooden boat community that is unique to the Pacific Northwest.

If you are looking for professionals familiar with installing our portlights in the Port Townsend area, we recommend checking with Freyja Boat Works, Ltd. or Port Townsend Shipwrights Coop or Townsend Bay Marine. For specialty bronze castings, call Pete at Port Townsend Foundry.

Port Townsend is also one of the last remaining Victorian seaports and is home to the annual Wooden Boat Festival. We host a display at this show, as well as 9 other shows across the country.

Whether you are looking for 316 stainless opening portlights or sturdy cleats and chocks, the office staff at New Found Metals will be there to help answer all your questions.

Why Us

New Found Metals portlights are the best portlights you could ever buy and install!

What makes NFM different from other suppliers of Port Windows? What makes us special?

First, our primary customer is you the individual, the sailor, the world cruiser, the yachtsman, and all hands on people like yourself.

Secondly, we answer the phone and we only sell direct so there is no dealer between you and our great support staff.

Our design, construction and engineering reflect 38 years of listening and learning from you and your experiences. We know that preparing a boat for world cruising is no small undertaking.

So our Port Townsend staff is with you throughout the installation process with guidance and the tools you need to get the job done quickly and effectively. But don’t just ask us, ask the thousands of sailors these past thirty years who have successfully replaced old Portlights with NFM Portlights on boats from Able to Yorktown.
