New owners.
Guernsey Marine Chandlery.

9th of June 2021

Boatworks+, Guernsey’s leading provider of marine services and chandlery, has come under new ownership after a sale to local businessman, Peter Tom, CBE.

Boatworks+ is an iconic, one-stop marine services centre and an important landmark on the southside of St Peter Port harbour. It has been Guernsey’s leading provider of maritime repairs and maintenance programmes for over 30 years.

Having faced significant challenges during the pandemic, the Company survived thanks to its heritage, quayside position and the essential nature of its services. Peter believes that with a refreshed management team and targeted investment it can fulfil its full potential, drawing more customers to the harbour with greater frequency, creating opportunities for nearby businesses.

Commenting on the acquisition, Peter Tom said: “I have lived on the island for the over 16 years and am delighted to be the new custodian of Boatworks+. It’s an important asset for the local community and we have exciting development plans for the business."

He concluded: “I believe Boatworks+ has a key part to play in the future development of St Peter Port and I look forward to helping the harbour grow and prosper.”

The new team have already started the programme that will enable Boatworks+ to fulfil its potential. However, if you have suggestions where we can improve how we operate, please let us know – it is a vital community resource which must meet local needs.

Peter Tom is the Executive Chairman of Leicester Rugby Football Club and former Executive Chairman of Breedon Group, which he founded. He also owns the Beach House restaurant at Pembroke.
