"A lifetime of service"
Our professional yacht care team will ensure your yacht not only performs at its very best but also looks sensational, giving you more time to enjoy your boating and relax onboard in comfort. Whether you require an annual service, pre-season preparation, or regular maintenance, we can help. Our team offers a variety of yacht care services from antifouling, hull polishing, teak cleaning and anode replacement to sail servicing, safety equipment checks and interior valets.
List of services
Working with market leading marine paint brands we offer a variety of antifoul painting options for your yacht or powerboat and will work with you to find the best solution to suit your boating activities and budget. Whether you want long term protection for a cruising motorboat or a smooth racing finish for your performance race yacht, we’ll advise on the best antifoul products to use.
Sacrificial anodes are a simple yet effective way of preventing the metal on through-hull fittings, engines and sail drives from corrosion. It's essential to check your anodes regularly, and arrange replacement once they are less than 50% of their original size. We can arrange a lift, hold and replacement in the HYS yard.
Boat Covers & Marine Upholstery
Shield your yacht from the elements and save time on cleaning with custom made boat covers and upholstery. From winch and steering wheel covers to over-boom awnings and cockpit canopies, we can source high-quality canvas protection that fits perfectly and is simple to put on and remove.
Sails Servicing & Laundry
Sails are subject to plenty of wear and tear throughout a busy sailing season, so it's prudent to get them serviced and laundered at least once a year. Servicing and laundering can help prevent damage and thus maximise your time on the water. We can arrange for the sails to be collected from your boat, delivered to the sail loft, and returned. An experienced team of sailmakers will carefully check over the sails, and repair any damaged areas.
Safety Equipment Servicing
Your marine safety equipment, including liferafts, lifejackets, EPIRBs, and Jonbuoy MOBs, need to be regularly serviced to ensure they'll work in an emergency. Our team can arrange for the kit to be collected from your boat, delivered to our safety partners for servicing, and returned.
Ocean Safety - Service Collection Point
Let us take the hassle out of cleaning your onboard carpets. Our technicians have access to the latest equipment and cleaning materials to carefully lift dirt and grime from carpet fibres without damaging them.
Inject new life into your interior woodwork with our French Polishing service. This traditional technique involves applying multiple thin coats of shellac to revive the wood's natural colour and provide your wooden interior with a high gloss finish.
Interior / Exterior Valet
From scrubbing the decks and polishing the stainless, to deep cleaning the galley, bilges and engine bay, our meticulous cleaning team will leave your boat gleaming. Whether you need a one-off valet or regular cleaning services, we'll get your boat looking its best.
Over time, painted topsides often become dull and faded due to UV damage and salt and grime build-up, but hull polishing can make them look incredibly sleek and vibrant again. After cutting back the gelcoat with a cleaning compound we'll buff and polish it to a glossy finish and apply a protective wax.
Cleaning teak decks requires special care to prevent the softer wood from being worn away by overzealous scrubbing. Regular gentle washing with a soft brush will keep the wood clean, but a bi-annual teak treatment can help prolong the life of your decking. Our experienced Yacht Care Team can carry this out for you as well as check the decks for any caulking damage.
