J-Star Boat Services is a family run company founded in 1981. Here is photo of the first generation.
Now the second generation is running this family run business, now in its 32nd year. Here is a photo of the one of the second generation with the third generation.
Simon, our Master boat Builder believes that having traditional family values is the best way to keep his clients happy & have them return to have more work done on their boats year after year.
Here he is working on fitting a new plywood sub-deck to a client's old gaffer before fitting a new top layer to the deck to make it water tight.
J-Star Boat Services is here to take the stress out of getting your vessel built or repaired, so you can
enjoy your sailing and explore new anchorages just like the photo below for yourself.
The master boat builder at J-Star Boat Services is a time served boatbuilder with over 37 years experience in the industry & having built or repaired many types of traditional wooden vessels (carvel, clinker & double diagonal) as well modern plywood and epoxy craft and now branching out into the narrowboat market.
While the boat builders in the company use Traditional Tools in their work, they also use a mixture of traditional & modern methods during the restoration work, so their clients get the best of both worlds.
