    Bret & his Neel 51

    ADVENTURE PROJECTS

    Bret, Amanda & their son were preparing for the World Cruising Club's ARC Rally in 2022.

    Having limited sailing experience and never owning a boat from new we stepped in to help.

    We worked with them to spec, from the manufacturers list of options and suggested additional upgrades for bluewater cruising.

    We followed the build process and travelled to the yard in France for the launch and commissioning period.

    We supported warranty work and their first months aboard, until the ARC Rally start line.

    Simon & Jodi's Discovery 50 BW

    ADVENTURE PROJECTS

    Simon & Jodi had decided to retire, they bought their Discovery 50 BW in Jersey but COVID struck.

    Having signed up to the World Cruising Club's ARC rally, they were short on time and experience in setting up a boat for bluewater cruising.

    We undertook a full audit of their yacht and managed the program of repair and upgrades. We also created a training program for Simon and Jodi, to get them up to speed with their boat and the bluewater skills they needed.

    They are now cruising the Caribbean and participating in WCC World ARC Pacific 2023.

    Shipwright & Marine Engineer

    Craig is a time served shipwright, mechanical/electrical engineer, joiner and fabricator; starting out as an apprentice at Camper & Nicholsons building wooden yachts. We haven't found a boat system he hasn't managed to design, install, fault find or repair yet and therefore he is responsible for much of our installations and upgrades, allowing us to keep most major works in-house.

     

    When not tirelessly improving the condition of yachts under our care Craig is involved in charity work, spending time with his family and tending to his alotment- continuing his agricultural heritage.
