What We Do

At Padstow Boatyard, we pride ourselves in our knowledge of boat building. We design, build and repair all kinds of fishing boats from vivier crabbers to fishing trawlers using the latest GRP composites as well as more traditional steel boat construction. We can also fit the newest engine equipment, stern gear, electrical and hydraulic systems.

Where We Are

We are located on South Quay, Padstow on the North coast of Cornwall. With a slipway, quayside and large work shed facility, we can offer a broad range of services in a convenient location to our UK and overseas customers.


Padstow Boatyard was started by Will Claxton, an expert in composite boat construction who has built boats all over the world, from super yachts to large fishing vessels. He has developed the business and broadened the scope of services we offer so we can meet the needs of the UK commercial fishing industry as well as other marine craft.
