They will lift, wash, sand anti-foul and polish your boat…and much more!

Boat Lifting Service

We work closely with the staff at Vilamoura Marina to schedule in lifting your boat out of the water for any repair works that maybe required.

Once lifted onto land, the underside of your boat will be jet washed to remove any barnacles, algae, and marine organisms which will have definitely taken up residence your boat – which can cause many problems if not dealt with.

Once this has been done our Boat Maintenance Assistants will then start work on sanding, anti-fouling and polishing your boat.
