Welcome to the 2017 Estuary Vessel Management website!


It’s been a really fascinating and satisfying first three years, doing what we’ve always loved – messing about in boats! Mind you, we never seem to get time for our own these days!

We are lucky in that we’ve made some really great friends from our lovely customer base, and long may that continue!


Vessel care

From a bubble bath to a full interior and exterior detail clean, we will care for your boat and keep her looking good and her value as high as possible.

Following a thorough clean the finishing touch to a GRP surface is to have it protected against UV damage by having it polished. We carry this out either by hand or machine polishing using various detail compounds.

Teak deck scrubs / restoration are a speciality using the Wessex cleaner / restorer Teak system. We are able to bring back the original colour of your deck without  causing damage to the timbers grain.

There really is nothing quite like the feeling of stepping aboard your vessel when she’s looking her best.

Please take a moment to view the gallery or our blog for examples of just what a difference a good clean can make!

Sail and Canvas work

The sails, spray hoods, stack-packs and other canvass work are pretty important components of a yacht.

Without all round seasonal care these can quickly become discoloured and damaged.

On your behalf we will remove, clean and arrange for any repairs required to be carried out, before having them back on the boat ready for your next trip out.

Our aim is to do this quickly and efficiently during a working week ensuring everything is ready for the next weekends sailing.

Seasonal vessel maintenance

  • The preparation and application of anti-fouling and boot topping.
