Building boats for the past 30 years, Steve Ellis has knowledge of designing and building boats that are optimal at sea.
Over the years we manufactured commercial oil industry dive boats for Qatar, Saudi Arabia, West and East Africa, Dubai, Australia, United Kingdom, and Europe. We are not a huge manufacturer however we concentrate on quality work and bespoke projects. In addition to the products we manufacture listed above we also have done many boat repairs as well as the fitting out of new hulls, such as hatches & insulated hatches, wheelhouse, consoles, mounting motors, electronics, etc. Our products have evolved over the years where we now have a great range of boats. However, our passion is new projects and new designs embracing the challenge to be able to deliver a high-quality product.
We have a wide network of experienced and talented colleagues to support these projects.
The client chose a butt cat hull and we customised the deck layout including the wheelhouse and hatches.
Each client had their own preferences as to how their own deck layout was to be designed.
Fibre Tech understood each of these clients’ requirements, some of the boats were for commercial fishing and the other was sport/pleasure fishing and diving.
