Berthon Boatyard Services

Since 1877 boat repairs, services and boat building have been at the heart of the company, and as a result, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area.

With skilled craftsmen and modern boatyard facilities, Berthon has the ability to deal with all aspects of boat repairs, refits, maintenance and servicing. We also project manage yacht and boat construction or fit-out projects from conception to completion.

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 exercises to ensure the utmost efficiency as well as operating an award-winning apprenticeship scheme that 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.

Refit and Repair

A bespoke approach with unparalleled capabilities, facilities, experience and skills. Berthon provides an unrivalled building, maintenance, and repair service. Our staff are highly trained and experienced in traditional and wooden boat building methods, and we are proud of our proven track record in restoring classic boats to their former glory. All marine trades are available housed inside our state of the art modern sheds where our accomplished project managers are able to advise you on all aspects of your yacht refit and renewal programme, ensuring we achieve the outcome of your desire.

Marine Engineering

The Yacht Maintenance and Repair marine engineers at Berthon are committed to providing unrivalled service and can deal with your yacht service, maintenance, repair, full yacht refit and boat refurbishment requirements whatever their scale.

Electronics

A good indication of excellent build quality is to see how much thought and consideration goes into those difficult spaces, Berthon believes that excellent workmanship starts with careful planning and logical assembly, this will result in a high-quality product that can be relied upon.

The standard of marine electronic work undertaken by our team is evidenced by the extreme care taken in every element of manufacture or fit-out: from planning a sensible use of the smallest nook to fitting the largest features on board a new RIB.

Valeting

At Berthon we recognize that it’s good to arrive for the weekend knowing that you will find your yacht cleaned and gleaming so that you can enjoy using, rather than tidying her. Also, that after a cruise or weekend aboard, you may prefer to leave us to pump the bilges, wash the bright work or even do the washing up!

The Boat Care Department at Berthon offers a comprehensive range of yacht cleaning options, whether you are a berth holder requiring a regular cleaning service or a visitor wanting a one-off exterior wash-off, polish or interior yacht valet. Below is an indication of our standard yacht valeting prices.

Rigging

Our experienced riggers can step and unstep masts alongside our yard wall for boats up to 90ft LOA using our own yard wall crane, or larger mobile crane. All types of work can be undertaken, from traditional rope work to using modern composite materials.

Shipwright & Joinery

At Berthon we carry out all the work required in teak deck repair or replacement, along with all deck maintenance for boats up to 120 tonnes. We also carry out remedial work on teak decks for small cruising boats including scarfing repairs and caulking repairs.

Teak wood is mainly used for its oily durable qualities and its consistent form when cross-sawn. Generally, the thickness of the teak for the average yacht deck is about a centimetre thick and if it is looked after it should last 20 years.

Lay-up and commissioning

Our Winter Lay-Up and Spring Yacht Commissioning programmes ensure that your yacht is kept in safe ‘hibernation’ over the Winter months, and made ready in Spring for you to enjoy another season aboard.
