Hi, thanks for checking us out,
Years ago, at 19, I had a dream to design, build and travel aboard my own sailing catamaran. 9 years later my dream yacht was finished and we set sail. I’ve have been living the dream since 1992, experiencing the most amazing adventures imaginable. To achieve my dream I completed my apprenticeship as a shipwright / boatbuilder, qualified as a yacht designer and hold an international commercial captains ticket. I live on the sea and love it.
The Mangrove Charlie crew are a fun, energetic, ever changing team of traveling skilled workers, sailors, adventurers and explorers.
We are large project boatbuilders with experience from design concept through every stage of yacht construction, all interior refit processes, engineering / equipment installation, to a completed yachts sea trials.
We provide managed labor at a fixed hourly rate for the duration of the project with an open accountable materials cost.
Our speciality: Hull modifications, design and construction using Diab foam fiberglass composites
Preparation and non spray application of marine coatings from Akzo Nobel/International paints.
Interior refits custom designed with light weight construction finished in modern fabrics or traditional varnished wood.
Our best projects have been for owners who love their yacht and want her modified to make her perfect. Our recent yacht refit modification experience is catamarans sail and power from 45ft to 65ft
Other great projects have been for owners who want to sell their yacht but she needs some work and is in the wrong location to sell, for these owners we deliver globally either under her own keel or on a ship, to the current hot spot for yacht sales and undertake works as required, at the destination we detail and maintain for perfect presentation throughout the sales process. Our recent refit, relocate and resale experience is with monohull yachts sail and power from 72ft to 120ft
Providing human resources, management and materials, for marine projects.
