• I would like to say how pleased I am with the Quick 185-55 Bow Thruster installation that Hamble Yacht Services Refit and Repair undertook on my 2014 Beneteau Oceanis 31 Limited Edition in January 2020.

    The installation was completed by their technician Andy, who was extremely helpful throughout and completed the work to a very high standard.  The boat’s insides were very well protected during the work.  There was no damage at all to the insides and at the end of the work the boat was valeted fully.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Hamble Yacht Services Refit and Repair to other customers wanting a bow thruster installation.

  • I can’t speak more highly of the work or service provided by David and his team. From the very start they have been very careful to understand my needs, provided very pragmatic advice and executed flawlessly. The boat looks amazing, far better than I could have imagined.

    I highly recommend HYSRR to anyone looking for work on their boat. Adam Proctor – Liquidity

  • Dear Mr White,

    Your fitters have left the boat today after replacing the window you supplied. (Thank you) I would like to add that the professional care and attitude your fitter showed whilst on the boat are a credit to you and the company. I will definitely use your services again. Please pass my thanks to everyone.

  • Thank you for all you help with the refit. I really enjoyed the time we spent at HYSRR and working with you on the project. It was really good to work with someone who I felt was really invested in the project and pushing for it to be a success.  The owner is really happy with all the work. It was by far the biggest refit we have done with the boat and I have to say a pretty stress free.

    I’ll be pushing to use you guys again whenever we are in the UK.

    All the best and thanks again for all your help

  • Every interaction I have had with Hamble Yacht Repair and Refit has been positive, from initial discussions, diagnosis, quote and estimated time scale, execution of the work, identifying better ways to fix a problem, communication with suppliers and myself, and final delivery on time and within budget. Paul Crisp did an outstanding job, also Naomi; who prepared the quote; David the boatbuilder supervised high quality work. Paul said their hourly rate is very competitive, and indeed it was, surprising as I had thought that a yard on the Hamble which deals with super yachts and state of the art racing yachts would have been more expensive. Paul has extensive experience in the Caribbean as well as UK, and this shows in his understanding or all aspects of yacht repair and refit. I heartily recommend this yard. – Intrepid of Dover

  • Firstly, a huge thank you to all the team for making the handover day so successful.  Tom worked so hard to get us through everything with us finally finishing at about 6.45pm!  Kerry and I were exhausted at the end as there was so much to take in.  The boat is lovely and we are absolutely delighted to have taken ownership of such a fine vessel.  There are a couple of minor points that Tom is dealing with but the overall standard of workmanship was found to be excellent and the guys at HYS have done a fantastic job on the forward cabins – so good in fact that it looks like it came out of the factory that way!
    Kind regards,

  • Thank you for helping me to realise this ambitious project within the timeframe allotted. The owner is absolutely delighted with the end product. The work undertaken has reignited his passion for exploring the best cruising grounds worldwide for years to come. Tenacity went on to win the “Concours D’Elegance” trophy at the inaugural Swan Cup Caribbean in March 2013. What a great reflection of the quality of the work undertaken at HYS! I look forward to working with HYS again on future projects.

  • I am writing to express my appreciation in the way that HYS have looked after me, as a customer, during the last few weeks. I have found everyone to be open and willing to help in providing a solution to the problems with the boat….particularly on the busiest Friday of the Season!

  • I would like to thank you for your help once again assisting us to refit Leopard 3 prior to our next race programme. It’s a bit like coming home as we have been working with you over the last 17 years on all out projects from a simple lift out to major rebuilds, but once again all the guys carried out their tasks to the utmost professionalism when handling our monster! Our campaigns take us around the globe using other yards, but HYS make it so much easier to carry out major works. The company’s own skill base and willingness to remove boundaries to ensure that we meet our programme is worth so much. We would recommend HYS to any yacht owner larger or small.

  • Thanks to everyone at HYS for a fantastic job during the refit of the fleet ahead of the next race. All 10 boats look outstanding so we’ll be sure to keep coming back.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for completing such a huge and complicated task to such a high standard…I would not hesitate to recommend your yard to any superyacht owner or captain.
