Aluminium repairs

With 20+ years of working with aluminium, we know this material inside and out. Got a dent from a buoy? Hit the rocks in Norway? Don’t worry. The experts that build our yachts are the same people who will fix yours.


Unless reclaimed, teak is no longer considered a sustainable choice for decking material. Luckily there are many other options available today. From anti-skid coatings and shot blasted aluminium to man made composite materials like Esthec which is durable, maintenance free and is available in various colours and custom options.


An overhaul, winterising or a brand new engine in your sailing or motor yacht? No problem. Our experienced engineers can handle any type of engine, whether it is new, used or refurbished.


From a new lick of paint and new upholstery to a complete makeover of your interior. We will be happy to discuss the various options and price tags to meet your needs. Our carpenters are true interior specialists. They can turn any type of wood into trims, decks, cabinets, and al sorts of furniture.


For many of us, finding the time to go sailing is already hard, let alone finding the time to work on your boat. Many boat owners opt for winter storage in combination with annual maintenance.


Painting your yacht requires precision. Our team of skilled professionals is equipped with the latest tools and techniques to ensure a flawless finish every time. We use only the highest quality paints and materials and take great care to protect your vessel or property during the painting process.

Since the beginning of 2023, our new painting halls have been ready for use. Besides the fact that we will make extensive use of it ourselves, we also offer opportunities for third parties to perform painting work here.

Our mast rigger Jan is always happy to perform a thourough inspection of your mast and rigging. After inspection we provide a report for the insurance company or the new owner.


On aluminium yachts in particular, extra care should be given to the electrics. Are you unsure or have you discovered electrolysis? We would be pleased to check your yacht and make the necessary amends.
