Mylor Marine Team – the Classic Choice for Traditional Boat Repair and Maintenance
Mylor Yacht Harbour has a long and distinguished history of traditional boat building and maintenance. 200 years ago it was England’s smallest naval dockyard. Today it is Cornwall’s busiest boatyard and marina – and we are proud to maintain that tradition.
Times change, materials and methods change, but quality remains absolute. The latest laminates, state of the art electronics, revolutionary hybrid power units….we employ all of these with precision and pride. But we also retain timeless values, timeless skills and a great respect for the graceful leisure and working craft of the past.
Mylor Yacht Harbour owner (and Sunbeam helmsman) Roger Graffy said: “Here, we share a passion for these fantastic boats. There’s nothing that delights our staff more than working on them.”
We have even built our own, just to keep our hands in. Three Sunbeams – Milly. Kitty and Spray – have been launched from this yard in recent years.
Virtually all classic sailing craft have one thing in common with our Sunbeams; construction from wood sawn, shaped, secured and sealed. Not on a production line, but as unique products of a steady hand and an experienced eye.
The nature of the materials and the effects of the elements mean that they are in a constant state of deterioration. And that’s where the Mylor Marine Team step in. They’ve seen and done it all, from race-day spit and polish to lovingly restoring boats which appeared to be beyond rescue.
