Restoration

boat restoration cornwall

We love restoring a dilapidated craft with a grand historic or some close personal interest to its former glory for future generations to enjoy.

We work from original plans, photographs or whatever information is available and create a full specification, costing and timeline for renovation.

Generally in trust, such projects may not seem to make economic sense until they are completed.  However, when the vessel takes to the water once again fully functional and as close to the original as modern materials and processes will allow, the project makes sense.

Pinuccia

A historic yacht joined us for restoration work- the elegant Pinuccia.  Reportedly once owned by Mussolini, this 8 metre classic yacht was designed by Vincenzo Vittorio Baglietto to represent Italy in the 1939 World Cup. Read more.

IOD Mitzi

Mitzi is a beautiful International One Design 30' gentleman's racing yacht built in 1958 that had fallen into a severe state of disrepair. Her wood, paint and varnish work were in extreme need of expert restoration. See the transformation.

Should you have a restoration project you would like us to become involved with, do contact us to discuss the possibilities.
