CABALLERO REFIT 2013 - testimonial

"Dear Fraser,

I would like to formally compliment you and your enthusiastic team at Riverside Boat Worx on a great job.

The process was well defined from the outset and with the excellent communication at all levels I felt informed and confident that the work was in good hands.

The result is a credit to all involved and the compliments I receive assure me that the quality of the workmanship is evident to anyone viewing this now gleaming vessel.

Please pass on my thanks to the team.

Best Regards

Brett May"

Marine Refit

The owners of this Oyster 435 commissioned us to undertake a major refit whilst they returned to England. This work also included the full replacement of the teak decks.

Interior Joinery

The joinery for this 20 metre Power Cat was designed, constructed and installed by the team at Riverside Boat Worx. Fijian kauri was used extensively throughout the installation.


Interior Soles

Solid teak was used to overlay on to the existing sole. The panels were sized down to accommodate the new teak.

Custom-made steps

A part of a major refit project, these companionway steps were made to replace the existing set.

Custom-made window jambs

We were commissioned by the Air Force to construct a large number of window jambs for a new accommodation wing. New Zealand Heart Rimu was used in their construction.
