SOLUTION:

Family run business, Berthon Boats, based in the Georgian town of Lymington, approached Spaciotempo for a retractable industrial tunnel to cover the boats that were being restored and protect them from dust particles in the air.

Based in the Georgian town of Lymington, Berthon Boats 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 boast 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 recently approached Spaciotempo for a retractable tunnel which they would use to cover the boats that were being restored and protect them from dust particles in the air.

The retractable tunnel we provided was 3.5m in width, 10m in length and 3.55m in overall height and using a concertina system it can be retracted back to approximately 128cm, 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 retractable tunnel can double up as a handy storage place for goods that need to be protected.

Berthon Boats’ Project Manager, Iain Woolgar concluded, “The Spaciotempo retractable tunnel provides us with just the right space to work on renovations. It is very easy to use and can be retracted back when not in use. It provides the perfect protection for the yachts and boats in for repair and re-fit, thank you Spaciotempo.”
