Refits

With the economy what it is, it has become more feasible to give older boats a new lease of life or turn the ordinary into he extraordinary. Using conventional and exotic materials we can turn  your boat, camper or even house into something that will turn heads and give you a sence of the extraordinary for years to come. Having experience in the marine and building fields we are capable of a vast variety of projects and can supply the client with anything from advise to concept drawings.

Synthetic Decking

Used as an alternative to real teak, synthetic decking is hardwearing, doesn’t fade and is a cost effective alternative to real teak.

Custom componentry

we have worked with numerous  clients to manufacture components ranging from new rudders to retractable bow sprits. Be it for practicality or to get more out of your racing yacht we enjoy the challenging nature of improvements.  Contact us for compettetive pricing and advise on what your most practical and cost effective options might be. We are sailors ourselves and enjoy nothing more that helping owners to get more out of their boats.

Dinghy foils
