Boatyard & Yacht Services

Boat repairs and Services, Hampshire

Berthon has been synonymous with yacht repairs, services and yacht building since 1877, and as a result we have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area.

With 100 skilled craftsmen, at modern boatyard facilities in Lymington, Hampshire, Berthon has the ability to deal with all aspects of yacht and motor boat repairs, refits, maintenance and servicing. We also project manage yacht and boat construction or fit-out projects of the highest quality.

At our Lymington boatyard, the dedication to providing the best marine services is key to the yard’s success; we constantly invest in new equipment and carry out very regular lean management exercise to ensure the utmost efficiency as well as operating an award-winning apprenticeship scheme which embraces modern technology whilst allowing many of our craftsmen who have been with us throughout their working life to pass on their skills and best practices.

We have posted quite a few case studies of our diverse abilities within this website, from the 1936 78ft Gentleman’s Motor Yacht BOUNTY to the 78′ Sailing Yacht AGLAIA, both completely restored and transformed at Berthon. Small repairs and pit-stops (refits in preparation for ocean passages) are our stock-in-trade, so please visit the relevant pages linked below:


One of our team of knowledgeable yacht repair and maintenance managers will advise you and organise all work to your requirements, for both motor and sailing yachts. Being a large boatyard we are normally able to take on last minute yard work.

Large refits, fit-outs and new boat construction are handled by a separate team of experienced marine project managers. We also have a dedicated team of yacht cleaners to keep your pride and joy shipshape – inside and out, all year round.
