Refit and Repairs

South Boats IOW has extensive facilities suited to the maintenance, repair and refit of small workboats. The company is part of a framework agreement with UK's Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the service base works on all classes or RNLI Lifeboats as well as local workboats and passing wind farm crew transfer vessels.


Maintenance is crucial to all vessels if they are to meet their operational requirements and of course comply with classification rules and regulations. With our location and experience in the construction and maintenance of all manner of craft. With our experienced staff combined with excellent working relationship with the supply chain we are well placed to undertake all maintenance projects in a timely and cost effective manner.


We are accustomed to facilitating emergent repairs quickly and cost effectively both afloat or undercover. Our highly skilled teams and years of knowledge we are able to repair all kinds of damage to SBIOW built vessels or any other type of vessels. We are familiar with working with other designers and yards to obtain the information we need to repair any vessel. We also understand that workboats that are being repaired are not earning so our teams will ensure a rapid turnaround.


South Boats IOW has built, maintained, repaired and carried out refits on many work boats and fishing boats, and is well known for carrying out works to the highest standards of quality and at a competitive cost.

Our extensive workshops are remote from the main building halls although we can utilise these facilities depending upon the nature of the refit and the type of vessel.

South Boats IOW has been chosen to carry out refit work by owners of wind farm support vessels, fishing vessels, Fisheries Protection vessels, police boats, harbour launches and most significantly the RNLI. The company was the first yard to sign a framework agreement and the yard has a steady stream of RNLI refit work of all classes.
