Shipwright Work

Are you a boat owner dealing with how to fix leaks, termite infestations, fire damage, or rot on the ship’s hull? Have you noticed any broken or loose equipment in the engine room or navigation equipment room or excessive water in a bilge area in your boat?

Who We Are

BowToStern is a full-service boatyard specialising in refit, repair, and restoration of wooden boats. We have the experience to make your wooden boat seaworthy again. 

The founder, Adam has been in the industry for 23 years, starting out at a company that was based in Shamrock Quay, Southampton, where he learnt the art of polishing and anti-fouling boats of all sizes before putting his hand to gel repairs.

After 8 years of becoming proficient in the field of repairs, Adam decided a change was needed. Wanting to broaden his skill set, he spent time at Green Marine and Cougar Marine, learning how to use different materials such as carbon and kevlar whilst building the Honda race boats. Adam is meticulous and conscientious and will give your boat the care and attention it requires.
