Bates Starcraft


In 2013 we assisted the owner in the full restoration of a Bates Starcraft a double diagonal teak planked twin engined motor boat, including a full strip out replacement of boat systems,services and interior fittings. The exterior was prepared and sheathing was applied with WEST SYSTEM with mahogany veneers attached to the superstructure. The seams of the deck were recaulked with the superstructure and hull spray painted with Jotun Mega Gloss.

“I recently purchased a 33ft wooden-hulled motor cruiser that has seen better times and needs significant work to get her back in the water. As a novice to this I find myself relying heavily on the professionalism, sage advice, and hard work of Mark and his team as we get to grips with this exciting project. He has been excellent. ML”
