Teak Decks, Joinery & Traditional Boat Building

In addition to our specialised rigging, marine electronics, engineering, spray painting, and stainless fabrication skills, Fox’s Marina & Boatyard also has a wealth of experience when it comes to traditional boat building and classic yacht repairs.

From hull planking and re-caulking on a carvel hull to replacing cold moulded veneers, our experienced shipwrights offer traditional or more modern wooden boat building solutions.

Committed to delivering high quality workmanship on modern yachts, classics and commercial vessels, we have the shipwright and joinery skills to make anything from a new cabinet, to a whole new stern post.

We are also experts in repairing and or replacing teak decking, specialising, in complete replacement decking projects when the original teak has become thin or the caulking has given up. Using digital scanning techniques, we can make up pre-caulked, teak, deck panels with an epoxy glass backing that are vacuum bonded using epoxy adhesive. This approach eliminates the need for fastenings and the risk of introducing additional through deck penetrations and possible leaks.

Co-ordinating and delivering all of our projects in-house with our own skilled staff gives us a distinct advantage over other boatyards, allowing us to offer the optimum level of service and workmanship, as well as the most competitive prices.
