Solent Refit welcomes winter refits

Solent Refit, one of the leading UK yacht refit and repair shipyards, has recently welcomed two more boats for winter 2013-14 refits (pictured below).

One of the new arrivals is the 33M S/Y Tiger Lilly, which arrived ready to go straight into the main hall.Solent Refit will remove her masts and she will be transferred into the main hall on the rail system, her works include a new paint job, some steel works plus her five year RINA survey.

Next to arrive was the 44M Tall Ship “Earl of Pembroke”, a star of many television shows and films. She is being hauled on the transverse slipway and will spend a few weeks ashore, where she will keep Solent Refit’s shipwrights busy.

She is having some timbers and frames replaced along with the 1500 meters of deck joints. This is to be done in keeping with her age, to keep her authentic to continue with her film star roles, using Oakham and Jefferies Pitch.
