Fox’s Marina feature in the May edition of Anglia Afloat. Fox’s is a name synonymous with East Coast excellence. When he started up a boatbuilding business in a shed in his garden in Wherstead (now part of greater Ipswich) in 1927, Charlie Fox probably had little sense of the history that would become attached to the name. Indeed when he started up he called the business the Halifax Boat Works, later to change it to CH Fox and Son Ltd as already people referred to it as “Fox’s”.
In May 2013 Will Taylor- Jones took over as managing director, having for many years been a key part of the Oyster Marine production team. Another new face around the yard is that of yard manager David Russell, ex-EC Landamore technical manager who joined in November 2013.
