Incorporating Southwold & Ipswich Boatyards


Taioma the 19th of April 2022:

With the good weather window at the beginning of last week we were finally able to get the sails and rigging back on and carry out the finishing touches before she headed back to the Orwell. Mike had a fabulous passage watching the sunrise last Thursday morning.

Taioma the 8th of April 2022:

The weather has really slowed the completion of Taioma this last few weeks as we have been waiting for calm dry weather to put the sails back on and fit some bits on the mast, but today the wind has finally dropped! Gavin has been busy fabricating some finishing touches including this protective corner piece to stop the ropes chafing on the corner from the jammers.

Taioma April 2022:

With her now in the water the new cooker has been installed and she is nearing completion, there are a few more finishing touches before she leaves the yard.

Taioma March 2022:

She was launched today and now the final works can be completed.

Taioma January 2022:

With the windows and new surrounds fitted and water tested she is looking fabulous and the bathing platform has been put back on following the transom painting. She is nearing completion and will be moved out of the boat shed tomorrow if everything goes to schedule.

Taioma December 2021:

The windows have been put in and we are just ready to put the window surrounds on, and her transom is being given a quick paint.

The transom has been painted and is ready for polishing.

Taioma December 2021:

The window openings have been made smaller so the window seal can be improved and the painting is completed so next stage is for the windows to be put back in next week.

Taioma October 2021:

The team have been busy putting in a new engine and connecting it all up and the windows have been taken out and the window surrounds are being made smaller, this is a lengthy process but Rachel has been doing a great job.

Here you can see a forma has been made of the window and the team are glassing in the gap to make the openings smaller

Taioma October 2021:

Taioma is a Vancouver 34
She has come to Southwold for a mini refit, as is often the way the customers have added to the job list while she is in the boat shed. Works include a new engine and all associated parts, new windows, hull polish and anti foul and thorough clean and smarten up.
