SYH is opening its doors for the day! The Workshop Open Day offers the opportunity to meet the team, see the facilities first hand, and get to know the site.

The well-lit, ventilated workshop at SYH houses specialist areas for all aspects of boatbuilding and boat maintenance. As well as a 130ft long, two-part spray and preparation bay, there is a custom joinery and machine shop and a dedicated area with the right environment and temperature for work on classic yachts.

From classic and GRP boat restoration and refits to paint and Coppercoat application, the team in the SYH workshops will be on hand at the Open Day to discuss all manner of projects.

The workshops at SYH are supported by the boat moving team, which has a hoist capacity of up to 75 tonnes as well as cranes for lowering and stepping masts, and a large hardstanding area.
