New Control Panel and Deck Teak Repair for Mahalo

High Quality Boat Repairs

TLC Yacht and Boat Repairs are well established in the field of building beautiful teak decks and have many years experience installing decks on boats and yachts of all sizes. Being part of the Camper & Nicholson team fitting out the 58ft in the early 1980's gave Barry a real benchmark against which to measure a high standard of joinery, a standard that TLC Boat Repair still lives up to. As well as custom teak decks we also build teak panels to order and can also carry out internal alterations, general boat repairs and internal joinery to a very high standard.

Personal Recommendations

Tom Cunliffe decided to have his yacht Constance transported to TLC from the Solent on the South Coast to have her teak deck repaired by Barry Lovell and his team at TLC Boat Repair. The repair was described in the December 2012 issue of Yachting Monthly in an article written by Tom Cunliffe. Tom said:

"Barry completed the job on time and on budget, to a standard where 'good enough' just wouldn't do."
