Competent Boat Builders - Recommendations?

Recommended Posts


I have a triple-skin Kauri yacht and I am looking for a seriously competent boat builder to undertake inspections and maintenance on major structural components such as keel, rudder post, prop gland etc.  I am based top of the South Island and local boat builders seem to be geared up mainly for light maintenance only i.e. painting and antifouling etc.  Can anyone recommend a boat builder anywhere in NZ who would be well experienced and qualified for dropping and inspecting keels, rudders, props and maintaining/replacing them? I've not had great experiences with boat builders locally and really need to find one who will be able to get it right first time.


Any thoughts?

Probably others, but if you talk to these guys, tell them Matt Paulin recommended them. You'll get a good honest deal from all three.
