About Ocean Yacht Company Limited - Background Information
Formed in 1989 our primary business was to create a big boat charter company catering for corporate clients, both hospitality and senior business training for companies such as Powergen, Rank Hovis, West Deutch Landesbank and so on.
In 1993 we purchased a traditional and local boatyard at Penpol. Since then we have been a multi functional operation, specialising in wooden boat restoration and modern classics.
Some of the yachts saved by this yard include:
"Lutine" x Lloyds Yacht Club of London (60' Laurent Giles by Camper & Nicholson), built in 1951 to compete in the Admiral's Cup, as well as for the American offshore race circuit.
"Rafale", a 1935 51' loa French gentleman’s cruising yacht, built in teak throughout by Chantier De La Liane. Retaining all her original features, she was race prepared for the ICYA circuit.
"Topsy", a lovely day sailing 16.5' decked Gunter Rig Sloop built locally by Pascoe's of St Just around the 1920's. Still owned locally, she now races during the summer, retaining all her shape and style and giving the family owners many hours of happy sailing.
"Columbine", a 1890's Day racing Yawl, 82' length overall. In around 1901 she beat Britannia at Cowes. Found in a mud berth in Essex and now a completed hull, she was recently sold by us to an American client and we were kept on to complete the decking and interior.
"Tern" WM Fife & "Ada" Yohanssen - see their history and restoration in pictures in the Classic Yacht Restoration Case Histories section of this site.
These are just some of our recent and more current restorations. There's always something of great interest going on here.
We have 180 years of combined shipwrights experience and have sailed over 145,000 sea miles - we really do know what it takes.
We're moored on the Fal Estuary inside Falmouth Harbour and can accept most vessels by sea or by road. We carry out complete works in house to very high standards.
