Renovation

Boat restoration Cornwall

We deliver solutions for renovation or modernisation that allow you to change a boat without consideration to its history.

Refit is the general term for such activity and this can range from re-painting to complete modernization.  We use current techniques and materials that can maximise the space of your vessel or create the adaptations that you need.  

Golden Globe Race boats 

We are refitting three boats to compete in the 2018 Golden Globe non-stop solo circumnavigation race commemorating Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's achievement 50 years ago. The retro rules of the race present unique challenges including the fitting of two bulkheads in both Biscay 36s Goldstar (nee Vizcaya, renamed Metier Interim for the race) and E'le May (renamed Liberty II for the race), both of which were orginally built at FBC, and the Endurance 35 Maja, the owner of which did not to compete. 

Powerboat refit

We have carried out a totally different kind of refit for a 1972 aluminium powerboat designed not only to win the Round Britain race, but push the design envelope of her time.

The current owner bought Pirate in poor condition yet today she is transformed inside and out.  She sports a new fresh interior design, a full suite of new eletronics and we have fitted modern common rail Cummins Diesel engines that make her faster than ever before.

We have the skillset, project management and experience to realise a boat’s potential so do call us on 01326 374309 or email us if you are thinking about a refit.
