Family business, Berthon Boats, based in the Georgian town of Lymington, has been trading since 1877 and occupies a prime riverside site offering easy access to the Solent.
As well as their marina, which has 280 deep water berths, the company offers a brokerage service for yacht buyers as well as an extensive servicing and refit operation.
The company boasts a large, fully equipped workshop facility as well as a separate paint shop to carry out refurbishment and renovations – from simple deck replacements to installing a full electronic suite, complete rebuilds and a wide range of restoration services.
The company has recently sourced a Ready Box retractable tunnel from Spaciotempo which they are using to cover the boats that are being restored, protecting them from dust particles in the air.
The tunnel is 3.5 m in width, 10m in length and 3.55 m in overall height and using a concertina system it can be retracted back to approximately 128 cm, which frees up additional space in the workshop. It is also highly portable and can be relocated to whichever part of the workshop, marina or yard it is required. As well as supplying protection for the boats the tunnel can double up as a handy storage space for goods that need to be protected.
Iain Woolgar, Project Manager of the company, is so far highly delighted with the new addition:
“The retractable tunnel from Spaciotempo provides us with just the right space to work on renovations. It is very easy to use and has a small footprint when not in use. It provides the perfect protection for the yachts and boats in for repair and re-fit.”
