Hi Lundrim.

There are many possible answers to your question depending upon what, to you, constitutes 'best'. Do you mean best price, best range, best quality, best customer service? And Europe is a big place - where are you? Personally I use Robbins in Bristol, UK, and am very happy with them. But that doesn't necessarily mean they're the best for whatever timber you want and you're not going to want to ship several tonnes of timber from the UK to the other side of Europe if there's a supplier nearer to you. You are working on a completely different scale to anyone on here so you're unlikely to get an answer that is entirely relevant to your needs - you would be better talking to boat/ship builders in your country/area to see which suppliers they use.

Good luck with your project.
