  • 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
  • Spraybay from the east and west endsVisitors to SYH will notice that construction work on the refurbished workshops is now complete. External cladding is in place and only the gable ends with their new vertical door mechanisms are awaiting final updates.

  • Old and new workshop areas, new gangway and fuel berth

    Refurbishment work continues on the SYH workshops, with the new roof and cladding being added to the existing building to create a much lighter building on the inside, with construction due to complete on schedule at the beginning of June. Meanwhile out in the marina, work on the fuel bay, crane bay, west harbour ramp and jetty E is now completed.

  • Extension nears completion

    Phase 1 of the workshop refurbishment is nearly completed with the extension now roofed and fitting out of the joinery and woodworking areas, machine shop and restrooms under way.

  • The extension and refurbishment of the SYH workshops is all on schedule. The old lean-to structure has been removed and the bank behind it has been excavated and reprofiled to make space for the new extension, with a retaining wall at the base of the slope. Steel uprights are in place and the concrete base slab has just been poured - photo shows the site before and after.
