Antionette update January 2022:

The team have been working hard finishing the woodwork and attaching the stanchions for the guardrail, unfortunately some of the points are not easy to access, this is where we have to enlist the help of a young bendy boatbuilder as apposed to our more mature members of staff!

Antionette update August 2021:

With the wheelhouse back on the team have been focusing on the parts of the deck inside the cockpit, it is a real skill to get the lines to work fore and aft and involves a few clever optical illusions so it looks good..

Antionette update August 2021:

The team have been making great progress, new beta engine is in and the wheelhouse is back on, now they are focusing on cabin-side repairs.

Antionette update August 2021:

The team have been busy carrying out repairs to the engine bed as some areas were not in good condition. With this work complete it’s over to the engineers to install the new engine.

Antoinette came into us back in 2018 for a fairly major overhaul and as works progressed we discovered further issues which needed to be resolved. Various works were completed including a new deck but then circumstances changed and the owner was taken abroad for his work and the whole project was put on hold for a while, we are pleased that now we have been given the go ahead to carry on with finishing her and after the crazy last year we finally have a shed free to be able to accommodate her again.
