    Fair Lady have been valued and loyal clients of CYS for over 10 years now. Every year we are on board doing a variety of jobs on this most beautiful 1928 Camper and Nicholson classic.

    Not least of which was last year, when we built them a new carbon fibre passarelle.




    Classic Yacht Shipwrights are proud that both SY Velsheda and now MY Bystander have been esteemed clients of theirs since they opened for business in 2003.  Every subsequent year, they have been in to CYS for either simple maintenance through to major refits.

    One significant project undertaken was rebuilding the whole complicated Jacuzzi area and with it, removing all the rotten timber, adding much needed, improved maintenance access and restored it to it´s former glory. The owner was delighted.




    Classic Yacht Shipwrights are specialist joiners for custom made tables; built to fit into the most confined space in a yacht.

    MY Dreadnaught

    This multi function table was constructed to fulfill 3 functions:  full dining table  - lower coffee table and thirdly with a cushion on top as a pilot bunk.

    Ferretti Motor boat

    Aft deck table.  The mandate for this project was for a table to seat 6 whilst having the ability to expand and accommodate 10.

    Rectangular in shape, made with thick chunky teak and high gloss finish, CYS designed this table so that two leaves could be removed or simply added to accommodate the required size.  Function was made so that the removed leaves could be stored inside the centre support leg, thus dispensing with storage problems.

    SY Julie Marie

    CYS re-veneered two cockpit tables as the original veneer was delaminating.  An excellent finish was achieved – We were happy with the finished item and the owners were delighted!

The Box

Beautiful objects, handcrafted by our time-served cabinet maker. The box to the right is presented in stunning, understated bare teak (leaving the option for the lucky new owner to choose their desired finish, or leave it to weather naturally)


Made combining traditional concepts and modern techniques this adaptable piece will look equally beautiful next to a pasarelle, at the foot of a bed or in a child´s nursery.



The Box Concept & Options.

Daniel Hobbs, owner and founder of CYS has had this idea simmering away for years, stemming from various sources, not least of which, the mess of shoes you often find on the dock. Finally last year, the actual build processes started.


From a solid teak box, to an all singing all dancing carbon fibre collapsible one for the smaller or racier client, where weight is a concern, CYS can design and build a box that meets all of your requirements. They could be bare wood, oiled or varnished, with gloss, satin or even matt finish. Have solid wood sides, a v-cut or a veneer of your choice. They can hold your shoes, your blankets or your toys. You decide!
