Channel Shipwright Services  - the experienced ship repair service in New South Wales

Our Services

We offer ship repair services for all types of vessels including commercial ships, tugs, ferries, cruise ships, exploration vessels, navy ships (Huon Class Minehunters) and luxury craft.

Are you looking to make some modifications to your vessel? We offer a full range of internal and external renovations including deck and mast modifications, carpet and vinyl floor fitting, and the installation and repair of water-tight doors, hatches, tank lids, gaskets, and seals.

We also offer a waterfront and facilities maintenance service to make sure your wharf stays in full working order.

Our highly qualified and experienced shipwrights are able to work from technical drawings and lines plans. They will also confidently work in confined spaces and from flying stages, dog boxes and cranes.

We have an excellent reputation for high quality ship repair, maintenance, and building work, and we have a number of clients that include Svitzer Australasia, Newcastle Ports, Thales Mine Hunter, Le Williams Engineering, Beaver Engineering, Herron Constructions, and Forgacs Dockyard.

We provide services to Newcastle, Sydney, Port Kembla, Wollongong, Nelson Bay, and Hawkesbury, and we have an after-hours service available to fit in around customers with busy schedules.
