Marine Products & Services

Building & Maintaining Boats Since 1877

Berthon Boat Company has been providing marine products and services for decades. Berthon works successfully with Government, Commercial and Private partners to provide boatbuilding, refits, maintenance, in-service support and marine products for clients such as the RNLI, Ministry of Defence (MoD), UK Border Force, Port Authorities, Commercial Boat Operators, as well as the private sector.

Berthon fully understands the demands placed on government and commercially operated boats, as well as boats operated in the private sector and has an experienced team of marine project managers and engineers that oversee all aspects of boat building, marine engineering work,  boat repair and refit, as well as marine product support.

We employ over 100 skilled craftsmen including marine engineers, electricians, riggers, painters, joiners, shipwrights and apprentices, who work at our modern shipyard facilities in Lymington, Hampshire. We are one of the few shipyards in the UK able to deliver to our clients an end-to-end service.
