About Fox's Marina & Boatyard

Established in 1927, Fox’s Marina & Boatyard has some of the most extensive yacht refit and repair facilities, to be found anywhere in the UK.

With dedicated departments all located on our own 15-acre site, Fox’s is unique amongst the majority of boatyards in that we provide a complete service in-house, with our own teams of highly skilled engineers and craftsmen, boat handlers, riggers, electricians and fabricators.

Fox’s is an efficiently run yard where we take pride in the quality of our workmanship and are committed to offering good value and exceptional service. Our team is an experienced mix of cruising and racing yachtsmen, with many thousands of sea miles on their logs and a wealth of expertise in project managing refits on yachts, built in any material.

Fox’s is proud to be a key supplier to some of the biggest names in British yacht building including Oyster Yachts, Spirit Yachts, Southampton Yacht Services, Windboats Hardy Motorboats and Gunfleet Yachts and we regularly carry out repair work on behalf of most of the major insurance companies.
