Havengore lifted at Fox's Marina & Boatyard

JUNE 2019

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help over the last few weeks in getting Havengore ready to return to London – I really could not have done it without the support of you and the team at Fox’s and I am very grateful.”



Julia Lineham, Operations Director, Havengore


The standard of the craftsmanship stripping back the gelcoat is as good as I could have wished for – a cracking job that exceeds my expectations. It reinforces that I made the right decision to have the work carried out by Fox’s.”


Ray Oliver, Skilso 32, Tamara


“I collected my motor boat Calypenta from Fox’s Marina today and, having used your services in the past, was not surprised to see what an excellent job had been done. But what was really nice, was the personal service I received from Ralph and Oliver who made sure the boat was washed off after launch, the engines and equipment worked and we were able to leave the marina in good order to catch the tide. At a time when personal service seems to be dying out, it is reassuring to know that Fox’s still provides it.”

John Marsh, Seaward 29, Calypenta


“We’re very happy with the repair to our Laser dinghy – over the moon, in fact. When you said it would be invisible, I didn’t quite believe it was achievable but you have proved me wrong! I would certainly recommend Fox’s Boatyard to anyone seeking assistance with their boat.”


Dave Malone, Laser Dinghy Owner

Another great pit stop at Fox’s!

Thanks to all the team for the efficient, friendly service in conducting my Beneteau 37’s bi-annual eight week pit stop. This being my second visit in two years, the distance from my home port in London is well worth the trip to take advantage of the TLC and excellent customer support. Nothing is ever too much trouble and for a yard with such a broad range of services, the fees are very competitive indeed.  We will be back!

John Grimshaw, Beneteau 37, Miss Molly, London

“Many thanks to all the team at Fox’s Marina & Boatyard for the great assistance we have had all winter – I would heartily recommend Fox’s to anyone!”

Paddy Spink, Discovery 55, Florence

MARCH 2018

“Dear Will, I would like to say an enormous thank you to you and every one of your staff at Fox’s who has helped us with our refit. We did things differently this year with new people and it was a steep learning curve for those of us running the winter programme. The support and professionalism of all your staff was a big factor in our success.”




Adrian Slim, Adventures Offshore Sail Training Yacht


“After a 40,000 mile circumnavigation, there are very few boatyards that we can unreservedly recommend for international long-distance DIY cruisers… Fox’s Marina & Boatyard deserves to be among them. We appreciated the careful lift, good knowledge of local specialists, fair price, and a healthy dose of patience to let us chip away at a huge to do list at our own pace.”

John Pennington, Custom alloy yacht, Sentijin


“I’m very happy with the service, quality of work and price from Fox’s Marina & Boatyard.”


Gemini 12 metre Fast Cat


“If you were a yachtsman with a problem to fix, Fox’s Marina & Boatyard would look like an oasis, for this is a one-stop-shop haven for a sailor.”
