We anti-foul all different types of boats - timber, ferro, alloy and fibreglass hulls and we do keels, sail-drives, props and shafts. 

We use a spray-gun to provide a full coverage of anti-foul. Ensuring your vessel has complete protective coating.


Your vessel will look as good as new with a machine wax and polish to your topsides, superstructure and flybridge.

We offer resprays to your mast, topsides, decks, fly-bridge, boot tops and cove lines.

Boat stripe service can also be done for boat names & registration.


anti-foul removal

Remove years of anti-foul build up with an environmentally friendly anti-foul removal system able to remove the toughest of algae and barnacles.


Prop speed

Prop speed increases performance, fuel economy and service life.

Adding prop-speed is a 2 step process. 
First, we add a 2 part etch primer and then we add a silicone based top coat. We use environmentally friendly prop-speed which does not contain toxic substances such as copper or tin.


ACid wash

The gel coating on a boat eventually oxidises and stains - losing its gloss. Acid washing is an affordable and easy way to remove oxidisation, brighten the colour and remove stains. 

To bring the shine back, we offer machine polishing which protects the boat from the sun and salt whilst also retaining the gloss for much longer.

Insurance Work

We work with all insurance companies - big or small. Contact Us for a quote today!
