Along with our dock facilities, our 13940 sq ft workshop allows us to accommodate all manner of large or small projects.

Projects can range from full refits/restorations of smaller craft with our team of traditional boat builders, to producing interior mock ups of larger projects with highly skilled joiners. This allows us to work through every stage with the client who can see their interior evolving alongside the yacht build.

With a ‘can-do’ attitude the Fitout team at SMS also offers a full range of shoreside services for residential and commercial clients.

Our team is dedicated to reach 100 percent client satisfaction. With your ideas alongside our experience, ability and enthusiasm, we are confident we have the key to making any project a success.
