Kingfisher Boat Service

One of the best feelings as a craftsperson is to take something that has been neglected for a while and bring it back into its glory for its owner.

Kingfisher Boat Service offers this mobile care for your boat; if you have bought a fixer up and need cosmetic help getting it ready for the season, whether that means refresher coats of varnish or paint, stripping off old finishes, or just a thorough cleaning, I can come to you. With a full set up in my car and, if travel time requires it, a self contained motor home, I can take care of projects that you don’t want to tackle.

If you are a boat yard with small jobs that you would rather not take on, please consider using me as a reference for your customers, or I can work per diem or as a subcontractor on your bread-and-butter maintenance projects that take away from your building or restoration projects.

Please call or email, or contact me through this website, if you have a project that you would like me to take a look at. My consultation is free.
