The Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy is quoted saying
… this rings so true in our busy shipyard. During the Spring months we are busy getting yachts ready for the season ahead, it’s probably our busiest time of the year, with our fully trained staff of shipwrights, electricians and engineers waking many yachts up from their winter slumber and commissioning them ready for the long season ahead. Our valeting team will be busy spring cleaning yachts of their winter grime and apply the odd teak treatment here or there. The shipyard team will be doing lots of new antifoul ensuring yachts don’t fall foul early in the season. Don’t forget that Summer is just around the corner!
