Refit and Repair
"A lifetime of service"
Over the years we have managed yacht and boat refit projects for some of the most prestigious yachts and motorboats, as well as high profile race boats and round-the-world fleets. From the initial survey and quote through to project management and quality control, we can look after every aspect of your yacht refit from start to finish. Our expert and experienced yacht refit and repair team can undertake emergency repair work on all composite and carbon fibre vessels. From collisions and groundings to general wear and tear, we can get your yacht or motorboat back on the water quickly and efficiently.

From built-in storage solutions, bespoke joinery, to interior redesigns and galley refits, our experienced boatbuilders can help you to transform the interior of your yacht. Our workshops incorporate a 150m2 well equipped woodmill.
Composite & Gel Repairs
Composite work requires expert knowledge and skill to ensure a seamless finish. With a dedicated laminating workshop our team can accomodate a wide range of work ranging from full structural repairs to cosmetic hull and deck work, for both GRP and carbon. Composite construction and repair is both a science and a fine art, we can tailor a customised solution whatever your requirements.
Matrix & Keel Repairs
Slamming, grounding or over-stressing the hull in rough conditons or hard racing can all cause damage to the inner keel matrix. The keel, keel bolts and matrix should be inspected annually to identify any possible areas of de-bonding or areas of damage. In the event of damage being identified, as a professional repair yard, we can assist with a structural repair to meet your surveyors specification.
Osmosis Prevention & Repair
Osmosis is usually identified by the surface of a boats hull starting to blister; to avoid this occurring you may consider protecting your hull with our anti-osmosis gel shield and epoxy coating. If it's too late for a preventive approach, then we offer an extensive repair treatment.
