Customer Testimonials



“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.”

“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.”

“We wish to thank Fox’s Marina & Boatyard staff for the exceptional help you have given us while staying at Fox’s Marina. All the work has been done to a very high standard and your staff are all very professional, helpful and treated our yacht with care and respect. The friendliness offered to us while dealing with unexpected ill health will not be forgotten.”

Kay and Trevor Parrish – Moody Eclipse 38, Moonbow


“We cannot praise Fox’s enough for the very speedy way they took on the task and completed it within the week. The boat is now on her way from Dunkirk to Ostend with a young crew who are enjoying a holiday that started at Fox’s instead of Amsterdam, but are only too aware that were it not for the hard work of the staff at Fox’s they wouldn’t be having a holiday at all.”


Judy Harrison, Adventures Offshore Sail Training Yacht


“Please pass on my thanks to the engineering team. The standard of service, standard of work and speed that this was all sorted, was exceptional. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Fox’s.”

“I was very pleased with the quality of work carried out on my Moody 346 at Fox’s over the last winter. David did a great job of managing the job, keeping me informed and resolving snagging items as the works completed. Thank you for making it as painless as possible and getting us back on the water this season. I shall be recommending the Fox’s yard wholeheartedly to other owners.”

“This is to thank you for the excellent and friendly service I have received from Fox’s over the 10 years that I have kept Luna Quest with you. I should be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to Karl,George and Lee and all the other Fox’s staff that have worked on Luna Quest.”

“We came straight to Nuku Hiva from the Galapagos and after the 3000+ miles passage, to have the Oyster Support Team there was a great comfort, as was the rig inspection by the team from Fox’s Rigging.”


Oyster 575, Ayesha II, Oyster World Rally, Marquesas

“The boat was anchored in a pretty rolly spot, in the most remote island group on planet earth, Andy from Fox’s carried out the most professional job on Daliance and I am sure no better repair could have been done if the boat had been alongside in The Hamble!”

Oyster 62 Daliance, Oyster World Rally, Marquesas

“We would like to mention the superb service we have received from Fox’s Marina. We have visited the boat on numerous occasions and we have had fantastic communication every week on the progress, including photographs of ongoing work and the timetable of scheduled works. Ralph Catchpole has been so helpful it’s untrue, giving us peace of mind and keeping us up to date with whatever we have asked of him. Jordan who carried out the work on our boat also deserves a massive pat on the back for the works done – again a superb effort. We would highly recommend Fox’s Marina.”

Owner, Fountaine Pajot Lavezzi Catamaran
