Materials Experts

We are fully-equipped to deal with multiple materials, whether that's building or repairing your boat in GRP, steel, wood or carbon composites.

150 Tonnes Shed

We are able to haul up to 150 tonnes into our covered shed so work on your boat build can continue regardless of the weather here in Cornwall.

150ft Quayside

Where the work shed is not required, we have our own 150 ft quay where work can be carried out all year round keeping your fishing boat build or refit on schedule.

New Build or Refit Fishing Boats

We have the experience and facilities to custom design and build any shape or specification of UK commercial fishing boat or sea craft from new in GRP, or simply to carry-out refit operations.

Custom GRP Fishing Boat Builds

We are extremely proud of the custom boat construction and refit work we carry out at Padstow Boatyard here in Cornwall. We manufacture commercial fishing vessels for fishermen based both in the UK and overseas. Here are a few images of a previous boat build project carried out for a UK based commercial fishing company. This was a 14.95m ring-netter designed by Pelagic Design in Falmouth. As you can see, this was an extensive boat construction project all the way through to sail-away stage incorporating a GRP moulded hull, bulkheads and deck build as well as external fit out. The Pelagic Marksman can now be found fishing Cornish sardines out of Newlyn. As well as building GRP fishing boats, we also have the facilities to refit and repair steel commercial fishing vessels.
