Interior & Exterior Upgrades
Our highly experienced team of boat builders and engineers offer a quality of service that is second to none. From the installation of a new galley worktop to enhance the internal finish, to the fitting of electric deck winches to assist with short handed sailing, and even the fitting of a third rudder system to some models to assist with manoeuvrability, all our yacht services ensure the future enjoyment of your yacht for many years to come. We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you with any upgrades you may be considering for your yacht.
Bow & Stern Thrusters
We are able to offer a comprehensive alteration and installation service for both bow and/or stern thrusters. These are proving a very popular ‘retro-fit’ addition to many older Southerly’s, as they only became a factory option on the later built yachts. In tandem with a bow thruster, a stern thruster literally enables your yacht to be moved sideways during berthing, at the touch of a button. Especially useful, and reassuring, in today’s ever crowded marinas! Please contact us to discuss the options available.
There will always come a time in a Southerly’s life where the keel will require some maintenance, and where better to come than the original home of the Variable Draft Swing Keel. We can carry out all your requirements, from basic keel inspection and pennant adjustment to a complete removal and refurbishment for the older Southerly models to bring the specification up to modern standards.
Coppercoat antifouling system
We are able to carry out the Coppercoat antifoul system for owners, to reduce the necessity of annual treatment using conventional antifouling paints. This involves a complete slurry blast to remove all existing antifoul coatings on the hull, keel and rudders. Then a full application of the Coppercoat system using the manufacturers recommended instructions. The manufacturer advises “the life of Coppercoat depends on a variety of factors such as water temperature and salinity. However, typically in Northern Europe one should expect effective performance for at least 10 years.”
