IT KIND OF RUNS IN THE FAMILY
Husband and wife team James and Sophie Tapp come from a maritime background of pure pedigree. They have been given a lifetime’s education for an eye for detail, knowledge, and quality finishing.
James is a qualified yacht surveyor and designer, predominantly with a sailing upbringing and a genuine love of the sea, with numerous titled powerboat accolades.
Sophie has grown a reputation for ultra-high standards and is a first-class international superyacht tender refit specialist working with global design and management companies. This is undoubted, via the influence and relentless education from her Father, Mark Pascoe of Falcon Tenders, formerly Pascoe International. She has grown up around the manufacturing of superyacht tenders and high-performance boats.
Sophie and James have a keen eye for the detail that clients expect, assisted by a dedicated team of skilled craftsmen. Their friendly yet hard-working approach has meant their company’s results of completed successful projects are growing year-on-year. They collaborate with owners and numerous management and middle commercial companies with refitting projects around the world but have their own refit centre here in the UK, based at Universal Marina on the shore of the River Hamble, Hampshire, UK.
RAISING THE STANDARDS
NEW WORKSHOP & OFFICE COMPLEX
- 75T LIFTING FACILITIES
Hanger 1, Maritime Yacht Service's 8,000 sq. ft. workshop and office complex, houses vessels up to 80 ft. in length for refit, respray, and repair work. It further cements the company's commitment to global service. "The increasingly unpredictable weather has meant our repair and coatings ability was limited; with this expansion, we can engage in more extensive repairs all year round."
Our facility is located on the east bank of the Hamble River, Hampshire, with 24-hour access and an ideal base to explore the Solent. Enjoy tranquil riverside walks or relax and soak up the vibrant marina atmosphere. Private parking, a full-service boatyard, and dry stack facilities are available.
Clients have acclaimed that their vessels have been improved from their original specification - 'The Perfect Anatomy', thus justifying the commonly asked question, 'Why should I refit over buying new?' The condition of a well-used vessel can be deemed a 'write-off', but the majority of times, it never is as well as, and not forgetting, 'sustainability', which consists of fulfilling the requirements of current generations without compromising the needs of future generations. So, updating and refitting the anatomy of your vessel and redefining the aesthetics and powertrain, maybe to hybrid, compliments both parties.

At the helm, with her experienced artisans, Sophie Tapp can replace and recondition every vessel's element to state-of-the-art, ultimately saving considerable valuable funds that can be used elsewhere.
