Mackay Boat Builders (Arbroath) Ltd


We are well equipped and prepared to carry out repairs to vessels further afield and have worked on vessels in Falkirk, Sornoway and Whitby and many more.

The slipway can facilitate vessels up to 25m in length for washdown purposes and max 30m if no washdown required. More information on the slipway facilities can be found on Angus Council website.

Fibreglass Repairs

We now have a purpose built facility for fibreglass repairs. Although the workshop has mainly been used for repairs to Fast Rescue Craft we have also carried out repairs to small fibreglass leisure craft.

The facility is suitable to carry out indoor repairs to any small craft regardless of construction.
