Experienced. Dedicated. Knowledgeable.

Bracewell Marine Group Ltd. has a history of creating World-Class luxury yachts and commercial boats which means that Bracewell knows what is needed for a great boatyard to be effective for your craft.

The last thing anyone wants is an ill-maintained boat that springs leaks or sputters along leaving you stranded on the dangerous Pacific ocean where the weather can change drastically, and often in just minutes. A reliable boatyard is part of a sound safety strategy that could save your life, and the lives of your loved ones. For Commercial boats, whether a tug boat, ferry or fishing trawler it can mean the difference between a profitable business season, or a sinking one, due to a dry-docked ship forcing unscheduled repairs, instead of out of on the ocean.
