Many years ago my father would take me with him when he went to work in the shipyard. It was spring time and the family boat, an 18m wooden ketch was out of the water on dry land. The shipyard was extremely untidy and to a young boy it looked both chaotic and dangerous. When I saw where the foreman had actually hauled the boat out onto the hard standing, I stood aghast: surely, only monsters or superheroes could pluck a yacht out of the water like that!

This is where I received my introduction to a world where highly motivated workers displayed their skills: men who were totally absorbed in their tasks, silently going about their work.

Every so often, one of them would get out of the boat and go to make something in one of the workshops, and when they emerged with perhaps a mechanical or a wooden object, it would be destined to be a finely sculptured fit at its precise location on board.
  So much has changed in the yard of today... but not everything. There are sophisticated machines and magnificent workshops; an extremely efficient management system; expertly written specifications and expert personnel readily available for advice.

As in the past, however, huge boats still have to be manoeuvred in the yard into tight spaces in the course of just half a day. In brief, throughout each working day, every attempt is made to complete the job correctly. The machines can make many of the challenging jobs much easier but we ensure that the all of our workers still retain the passion for what they are doing.

Now it’s time to introduce to you our new web site. Welcome on board!
