Boat Yard Services


Based on the U.K’s South Coast, Sussex Yachts are a well established yacht repair, service and refit facility, providing professional shipwright services for both cruising and racing yachts and motorboats alike. We have available both indoor and outdoor storage, which allows us to undertake specialist projects and complete refits in a contained, balanced enviroment.

Sussex yachts boatyard facility houses our team of experienced and skilled craftsmen and engineers. We specialise in working on modern GRP cruising yachts, race boats and motorboats, as well as classic wooden yachts. Although we are unique in our ability to offer our services to very large vessels, due to the workshop area and deep water draft of a commercial port, we undertake repair, refit & maintenance projects on all sizes and styles of vessel.

Our range of shipwright and boat yard services include copper coating, Awlgrip & International spray painting, yacht rigging, marine electronics, engineering, gel coat & fibre glass repairs and stainless steel fabrication. We carry out osmosis treatments, antifouling, cleaning, polishing, engine servicing, bow thruster and windlass installation. Sussex yachts are able to project manage anything from the smallest repair or modification to the largest and most complex refit.

Our experienced team of riggers can carry out service works or replacements of standing/running rigging, masts, spars and deck hardware. Whether it be a simple rig tune, or bespoke rig package our technicians are on hand to deal with your requirements. Sussex yachts are a service centre for Selden and Lewmar products as well as being an official Z Spars sparring partner. We supply & install new masts, spars and booms, Furlex furling systems, bowsprits & genaker poles and a variety of deckware solutions. We also provide a yacht optimisation service, to assist in increasing your race ratings and performance. As well as stainless steel wire and rod rigging, high performance and synthetic rigging is also available such as dyneema, PBO & aramid.

The appearance of a vessel can be hugely improved with a new paint finish on the topsides and superstructure. Sussex yachts are an approved spray centre for Awlgrip & international paints and our professional spray service can give the highest quality results to rejuvenate the appearance of your vessel, masts and booms. If a performance finish is what you need to get results, then spraying the hull with nautix performance antifouling is the way forward. This super slick finish will give you optimum results on the water.

Sussex Yachts offer a lift and antifoul service. Using two coats of International or Hempel antifouling products to give you a foul free hull for up to two seasons.If seasonal antifouling is not the choice for you, then Copper coat maybe the answer. It is a multi season finish that provides a high strength, long term solution, saving the time and expense of the annual haul out and re-antifouling. Copper coat can provide continual protection against fouling for up to and over 10 years. Sussex Yachts have a team of experienced technicians, that can ensure the correct hull preparation and application can be achieved, to ensure the longevity of this product.

The boat yard is well placed for vessels travelling from the East and West coasts, as well as from across the Channel. There are strong commuter links from London by rail and directly adjacent to the Dieppe cross channel ferry, France is just 4 hours away. Close to the M23 and A27, Sussex Yachts boat yard is easily accessable by road, with ample parking.

Sussex Yachts pride themselves on customer service. We aim to give the utmost care and attention to each vessel, to be sure that we meet the requirements of our customers. We are aware that the refitting and alteration on a vessel is a long term investment to our customer, one that we like to ensure everyone is happy with.
