Boat Repair, Working Remotely

We completed a complex repair job to a 47 foot yacht in Greece after travelling through 11 countries over three days.

The yacht had run aground and suffered a sizeable keel impact and significant internal damage as a result.  In addition, the bulkheads were set adrift and the laminates were destroyed from the judder.

In less than a fortnight, we removed the keel, repaired the damage, set the keel with an epoxy filler system, de-rigged and re-rigged the mast, hauled, epoxy laminated, de-fouled, anti-fouled, finished and relaunched the yacht, setting her in commission for the owner’s arrival.

The owner said: “‘Wonderous Stories’ has never looked better.  The team communicated excellently both with me and with the staff of the Greek boatyard.  A friend recommended FBC following the yacht repairs they undertook for him and I’m pleased that the insurance company endorsed my decision to choose them.”
