More about us...
Their focus is mostly on interior work, although they recently carried out a major teak deck project on a 140ft yacht, removing the entire deck to custom build and install a new one. They can accommodate any request involving wood, composite or vacuum veneers from teak decking, mahogany cabinetry and fine furniture. They specialize in veneer and wood selection to match existing woodwork, so the new piece looks like the original. From a glassware holder to an entire deck, nothing is too big or too small for this team, always bringing the same quality level. Recent projects include major refits on a Gunboat 62 and a Palmer Johnson 104, as well as installing the interior aboard a Rogers 82. Passionate about classic yachts, Jim owns a wooden International One Design that he restored and races. To explain his success, Jim modestly says: “My philosophy is that I expect repeat business”.
