Welcome to our News page, where we will be sharing all the latest news from the boatyard.
Just launched for the 2015 season the Bristol Pilot Cutter Alpha has undergone an undercover winter refit including the design, fabrication and fitting of a hand anchor windlass together with external painting to the hull. The windlass had to be in keeping with the style, layout and finish of the deck whilst being practical and […]
Allan MacDonald gave a presentation on ‘Risk Assessment’ to the boatyard team last week. Corpach Boatbuilders have engaged with Amalgamate Health and Safety consultants to provide H&S training, advice and support. Allan completed an H&S audit earlier this year and as a result prepared a safety development plan which has provided a framework for a […]
We recently required temporary administration cover in our office, we had a great amount of interest in the two part time vacancies that were advertised, and after an initial interview process we were happy to welcome Audrey Cavaye & Lorraine Wilson to our team.

They take disadvantaged young people from across Scotland and offer them a 3 week Classic Course or 1 week Serious Adventure Course during the Summer, which for some can be a life changing experience. They very much rely […]

She suffered hull damage and water ingress and there were no injuries to the seven crew on board. The vessel requested […]
We thought we would share these rather amusing pictures of a recent team building event that Don attended. Don is the Chairman of the Fort William Chamber of Commerce and this was an event held by Glencoe Activities……No doubt this has given him far too many ideas for the next Boatyard team building event!
Believe it or not we have just celebrated reaching 21 years in business; here is a picture of the old timers that have been here from the start.
