Welcome to the website of Will Squibb Boatbuilders, a family-run boatyard based in St Helens on the edge of Bembridge Harbour on the Isle of Wight.
With over 30 years experience, Will looks after boats from various local fleets including Seaview Mermaids, Bembridge Redwings, Bembridge Scows, Seaview Dinghies and Bembridge One Designs (BODs).
We provide a wide range of services in-house through our multi-skilled team, including slipping and storage of boats up to 60 feet, rigging, wood & GRP laminate work, rib-tube repairs, marine electrical work and signwriting. For more information on the services we offer, including those offered through our local partners, see our services page.
Over the years projects have included a refit of a Levi 27 Corsair which was featured in the BBC Drama 'Harbour Lights', and more recently 'Cararchiemax', a 9m rib which successfully completed the Evinrude Round Britain Youth Challenge. In 2010 a full restoration was completed of an original 1969 Cowes-Torquay powerboat, which will eventually take up residence at the Museum of Motive Power.
