PE/EVA foam decks are rapidly taking over the marine decking world.
They are comfy to walk on and don’t retain heat – even in the peak Summer sun. They are stain resistant and easy to clean, they are non slip in wet or dry conditions, incredibly durable and do not fade in the sun…
And they look the business!
What used to be the domain of wake boats and the odd fishing boat is now being embraced by small and larger vessels alike, looking for a cost effective flooring to replace their weary teak, or those looking for a sharper, easier, better alternative to carpet.
We use state-of-the-art machinery to provide perfect custom foam decks, and can add boat names, logos or design a completely different decking look to help you stand out from the crowd.
Give us a call to discuss how you’d like to design your next deck.
Teak decks are a beautiful addition to any boat. They add character and value as well as providing a weatherproof non-slip surface that will look great for years to come. We come to you and take precise templates, then make the deck in our workshop, minimising downtime for your boat.
If your existing teak deck seams have worn down or are failing -depending on the thickness- we may be able to re-trench and re-seam your deck.
We are proud to say we have recently been appointed distributor for Teakdecking Systems- the global leader in teak decks. Their range covers everything to do with making, repairing, cleaning and maintaining teak decks.

With experience in long term projects, you can have confidence that we will work with you every step of the way. We can provide you with a cost assessment and project management plan and are committed to providing you the reassurance you need on a large job- that it will happen to plan and to budget. We have a strong trade network, including electricians, engineers, trimmers and even fridge mechanics, ready to cover all bases. We can make turning your dream into a reality, an enjoyable process.
If your boat needs to be out of the water we may also have the space to store your boat to make it cost effective whilst doing all below waterline work. Call us today and we can discuss your plans.
We have a good working relationship with all local marinas, the insurance companies and marine assessors alike. Quite often it is possible to get benefit from an insurance claim by having other work done coinciding with the claim (i.e. when slipping is involved). Please nominate us as your preferred repairer to the insurance company or simply call us and let us take care of everything.
Fine Joinery and Boat Furniture
Teak is a beautiful addition to any boat, whether it’s a new dining table, teak trim around your cockpit, new rod racks or grab rails, or a new teak deck to be more comfortable under foot, we can help. We are also experts in teak restoration and maintenance so if your existing teak -or teak veneer-is looking weary or water damaged, give us a call to discuss your options.
Real estate is king! A marlin board extension adds value to your boat and gives you an edge over others when selling. It gives you room to fit your tender at the back AND have room for a couple of deck chairs. No more stepping around each other with fear of falling in. If your board has any existing damage we can repair that at the same time. Even upgrade your swim ladder to make it easier to get in/out of the water. With so many reasons you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. Call us today for a quote!
On a larger scale -depending on the size and type of boat- we can also make flybridge extensions or transom extensions, giving you the extra room you want upstairs or in the cockpit. We can lay teak to match and a professional paint job blending in with the rest of the boat will make it look original.
Bimini/ Hard Top Conversions
Don’t want to replace a leaky bimini every couple of years? Let us make you a hardtop! The further benefits include ease of cleaning, savings when it’s time to replace the clears, adding value to your boat and having it stand out from others when selling. Possible extra additions include lighting, speakers, skylight hatch, overhead console or whatever you want. Call us for a quote today.
We have dozens of complete plumbing renovations under our belts. We have a proven track record for designing, making and installing new fuel, water or waste tanks and systems.
With years of colour matching we can make that repair disappear, that modification look original or re-paint your boat to look as good as the first day it hit the water! We do both spray and brush painting with 2-pack systems, also varnishing and brush single pack enamel paints. No job is too big or too small.
Windows, Hatches, Screens and Panels
We can remove, remake, re-seal or replace any of these including windscreens and brow screens, flat or curved, clear or tinted. Glass, acrylic, even carbon fibre. Whether it’s console panels to tidy your dash, a glasses cabinet, or an overhead locker space adding or removing instruments, we can do it all.
