Very satisfied customer.

Friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, good value and reliable. I have had my 8m yacht with them for 12 years with no issues. Sarah is excellent with the admin and email info and Gus knows everything about boats and seems to be able to fix everything too. I am a very satisfied customer and hope to have my boat with them for many years to come.

Highly recommended

From my experience Harry Kings Boatyard provides a high level of service to its customers. Providing free advice if working on the boat yourself. Experienced Rigging, fabrications and engine mechanical services are readily available at the yard. Highly recommended.

Excellent and reasonably priced job.

Marcita (Buchanan 1957) was built By Harry King & Sons and has spent most of her life there, being looked after by the yard. This year we needed a new rudder shoe in stainless steel, and they did a great job of making and fitting it. It was reasonably priced, and the result is going to make us feel much more secure if caught out in bad weather. Marcita is wood, but they do GRP and steel/aluminium as well, and I'd heartily recommend them to anyone on the east coast needing skilled work, combined with beautiful scenic moorings, with curlews and oystercatchers for your alarm clock.
