Batteries & Power Management
As we load our boats with more and more appliances, luxuries and creature comforts, it is important that power systems are installed and maintained efficiently to keep everything in good working order and maintain hassle free sailing. We offer generator repair and installation together with a wide range of electrical services. Our extensive experience in the installation and servicing of generators and power management systems means we can handle complex bespoke systems as well as “off the shelf” configurations.
Electronic Upgrades & Software Updates
Electronics evolve rapidly. Updating your software will fix bugs, ensure your electronics are operating correctly and can even expand your equipments functionality. But if your system is a few years old, you might want to take advantage of technological advances that allow you to navigate with greater safety and enhance your time onboard.
Deck & Interior Lighting
Whether you're looking to install deck flood lighting and navigational safety lights, or cockpit and interior soft ambient lighting, we can service existing lighting systems, or help you to design something new.
Create beautiful mood lighting with reliable underwater LEDs, surface mounted or thru-hull, available in a variety of colour options.

An onboard Reverse Osmosis water maker is essential for ocean passages, but still comes into it's own on shorter coastal trips so you don't have to worry about conserving water or contamination from unknown filling points.
Air Conditioning & Heating Systems
Air conditioning can be a blessing in a busy marina when you have limited air flow over the boat, wherever you're based. Reverse cycle units can also provide heating to further extend your season, and the freedom your boat offers.
The perfect marine refrigeration operates noiselessly, allows for easy access when underway, consumes the minimum of power ensuring that you have fresh food and chilled drinks to hand whenever desired. A wide range of models are available.
Stern & Running Gear
Pitted propellers; bent prop shafts; loose bolts on couplings; wear and tear on gearbox and drive plates; leaking stern glands; odd noises and vibration - a regular annual service schedule will pick these up before they become an issue.
Skin Fittings & Seacocks
Skin fittings and seacocks should be checked regularly for signs of corrosion, ideally every year when your boat is hauled for anti-fouling. A failed or leaking seacock could spell disaster if not spotted early on.
Winterisation & Recommissioning
A typical winterisation package includes the engine, generator, fresh water system, WC and batteries plus a thorough check of the alternator, starter motor, engine mounts, lubricants and underwater fittings. Once the cold winter months have passed, your systems will be recommissioned, enhancing your boats longevity.
