West Solent Boat Builders Limited has traded on this site for over 40 years and the fact that the present Managing Director was the senior founding partner lends a continuity rarely found in today’s world.
In the early years the business traded as a partnership with a significant interest in the building and fitting out of commercial fishing vessels and yachts up to 40’LOA. This work was carried out in addition to providing the usual range of repair and lay-up facilities to the local yachtsmen.
With the virtual demise of the inshore fishing industry in recent years, it was decided to cease building and to concentrate on providing owners of sailing yachts and power craft with a comprehensive, reliable and friendly service.

Haven Covers specialises in bespoke boat covers. Located in the sailing town of Lymington and situated in Lymington Yacht Haven we are close at hand to meet your needs. As Cover Makers we offer a full cover service, we don't pick and choose, so whatever size or type of boat cover you require, be it a single hatch cover, a winch cover, or a complete cockpit canopy, to a full winter cover, we have you requirements covered.
The owner of Haven Covers, Jerry Clark, started out as a Cover Maker upon leaving school in 1977. Since that time he has also turned his skills to other trades such as owning and manufacturing traditional bespoke farmhouse furniture, as well as spending nine years within the upholstery trade, although his creative skills and enjoyment in making covers has always been maintained and in high demand.
On his first day as an apprentice Cover Maker, Jerry was asked the question by his mentor; “Anyone can make covers, but few can make good covers. Which do you want to be?”
Since that day, Jerry became, and remains to be, one of the few.

What We Do
At Sea Jay’s we teach students at their own pace, whilst making the training fun and enjoyable. No one is expected or asked to tackle anything outside their own comfort zone. Students are assessed for their strengths and weaknesses at the end of each day during an evening debrief. Our aim is to make sure that everyone is enjoying the experience.
Sea Jay’s are proud to be contracted by the Ministry of Defence for private sail training, and proud supporters of the Defence Discount Scheme and Bluelight Card for NHS, Police and emergency services.
As of the start of December 2016, Fiona Vander took up the opportunity to run Sea Jays Solent Sailing School.
With her infectious laughter and ever happy persona, Fiona decided that it was time to ‘spruce up’ the school ready for 2017. This includes focusing initially on our two yachts Sea Breeze and Sea Lily, which underwent a major refit programme. Her newly appointed Chief Instructor for Sail Cruising & Powerboat, Jamie Griffin, has joined Fiona and is busy turning the school plans into reality and giving the best on the water tuition as possible.
We are going to be upgrading and changing lots of parts of our business, even as far as a smart sailing kit for our instructors, and we will be offering more courses with more availability’
For more information about the exciting changes call Fiona or email us on the details below – we can’t wait to hear from old and new friends.
