Situated for many years in the heart of Woodbridge on the banks of the picturesque River Deben in Suffolk, The Woodbridge Boat Yard Ltd, (formerly Everson & Sons Ltd.) is a boatyard providing moorings and winter storage for more than 150 yachts and motor boats at very competitive rates. We maintain more than 50 moorings, mostly drying at half tide, and  pontoons for dinghies and small craft.         In addition we have craftsmen on hand to provide for all boating needs, including engine installation, maintenance and repair, painting and antifouling, joinery and all woodwork maintenance and repair. Over the years, many local yachts and dinghies were built here including Kingfishers and Cherubs. Today we still build a gunter rigged sailing dinghy suitable for use as a tender as well. We are able to supply and install the modern and efficient BETA range of inboard diesel engines. Sails are supplied and maintained locally by Suffolk Sails in Woodbridge or Sail Medic in Ipswich.
