A shipyard’s new model for repairs and refits is set to benefit superyacht owners and their teams.

Portchester based Trafalgar Wharf Group is to allow owners to bring in their own repair and refit teams, rather than being tied to the shipyard operator.

“I’ve taken the shipyard back in house,” explained Jonny Boys, group MD. “Owners want to get the best price and quality from ship repair and refurbishment companies. The best way to do that is competitive tendering. There are not many shipyards where you can bring in your own independent teams, but owners want choice and the control that brings.”

He added: “Once a ship is in dock, you can’t just move it if things aren’t going well. But when you hire the shipyard only, it’s easy to make changes if a contractor isn’t performing. That’s unrivalled flexibility.”

Chris Hems has been appointed dockmaster to the 24-hour working facility.

The shipyard deals with superyachts and houseboats among other vessels.
