Open weekend success

Open weekend posterThanks to everyone who joined us over the weekend of 24-25 October to visit our bigger, brighter, better workshops. Don't forget there's still time to discuss any work we can carry out on your boat, including:

  • Coppercoat application
  • Topside resprays
  • Classic restorations
  • GRP repairs
  • Joinery services

The refurbished workshops allow us to carry out repairs and renovation on traditional and contemporary yachts and motorboats, using all the latest technology. The area now features specialist zones, including:

  • A two-part spray and preparation bay 130ft long in total. With one area for prep and one for spraying we can speed up the process for all coating, whether it’s an Awlgrip topside respray or Coppercoat spray below the waterline.
    The new bay enables us to work faster and more efficiently, with throughput increased by 30% over the old workshops. And the efficiency is reflected in the competitive prices we can offer to our customers.
  • A custom joinery and machine shop allows us to construct and fabricate specialist joinery and shipwright components to meet customers’ requirements.

The whole workshop area includes specialist flash-proof lighting where required (it uses positive pressure generated by a fan), and eco-friendly LED lighting in other areas. The latest technology is used for heating, extraction and ventilation with full climate control.
