Fibreglass Repairs and Fabrication

We can do any fibreglass repairs and modifications to the hull, topsides and superstructure.  
All types of fibreglass fabrication and customisation from custom hardtops, new lockers and cupboards to instrument pods, structural bulkhead reinforcement and engine beds, rudder and keel repairs, to osmosis and gelcoat repairs.
The options are unlimited!

Fibreglassing in Bow or Stern thrusters is a popular way to assist with manoeuvring your vessel. Especially when there's limited room and strong winds or currents.

Teak Decking

Foredeck Marine specialises in replacement and installation of new teak decking.
We use solid teak planking with non-mechanical fastenings, so there are no screw holes for water to enter through.
We also install Flexiteek, cork and other alternative deck applications.


Our team of highly trained and experienced shipwrights has designed and manufactured several custom componentary from fibreglass or timber.
You will be amazed at the difference a hard top can make to the versatility of your boat.
Custom seating and storage can transform that vacant space to an ice box and rope storage.
Install hatches and lockers to organise your vessel or galley.
Extend the swim platform and install davits and dinghy rack to keep the inflatable handy.
Just a few ideas! We would love to help customise to your requirements.

Interior Fitouts

Customised cabinets, bulkheads, galley, tables, bars even bathrooms - you name it, we can do it.
New custom headliner, perhaps an island bed or new modern galley, or a custom teak and ash floor - we can restore your current interior or build a completely new one.

Timber Boat Restoration

Relive the beauty of our past and restore your timber boat. Timber boats require special skills and extra care.
The traditional shipwright skills such as caulking seams, replacing ribs, steaming timber to alter curve and roving with copper nails are all specialised shipwright skills.
Removing rot, replacing docking keels, sealing leaks and checking for worm are all part of owning traditional timber boats. Foredeck Marine can offer shipwrights who are highly skilled and experienced in all of these areas.

We also offer:

Bow and Stern Thrusters

Bow and stern thrusters are a new modern way to assist in maneuvering your vessel.  
Particularly useful when there is limited room to access a berthing area or there are strong winds or tidal currents.
A hole is made through the bow or stern of the boat where a tube is then inserted and the thruster installed.


Dinghy Davits and Cranes

Don’t have anywhere to store your dinghy? Dinghy davits, cranes and cradles are the answer to ensuring your dinghy is available and easily accessible whenever you need it.
There are many options to suit most vessels and they can be easily customised to fit your boat.


Tank replacement and Plumbing, Running Gear, Engine installation

There are many things to consider to ensure you are getting the best performance from your vessel. Adjusting the pitch on the prop and ensuring clean fuel can be a start. However, if you decide to repower then Foredeck Marine can modify engine beds and mounts to cater for your new motor.
New fuel or water tanks may be required and these may need to be cut out from your boat and reglassed in. We can design and manufacture these to fit your confined spaces.
We also check skin fitting and ball valves which need to be serviced regularly to ensure the safety of your vessel.
