Refits & Maintenance


With our extensive facilities we are able to carry out major refit works for boats up to 70ft and of late we have done major refits to boats from Holland, Scotland, Portugal and destinations from around the UK. Recently we have also completed similar works to commercial vessels such as the Fisheries Coastal Protection vessel.

All refit projects are managed professionally from the outset and in conjunction with the boat owners/representatives Firmhelm provide full consultancy and appraisals of the works prior to commencing, together with free estimates and advice for the works to be undertaken. In liaising with the customer Firmhelm offer a second to none service and delivery of works to the highest of standards.

Examples of refit works carried out would be:

  • Major repainting works to entire vessels
  • Renewing of teak decks
  • Renewing of cabin top structures
  • Extensive fabricating works
  • Renewing of major interior structures
