Corpach Boat Builders have, for more than ten years, worked closely with CalMac on the maintenance and refurbishment of their Island Class ferries. Initially our contract was for four vessels and this has now been reduced to two as CalMac upgrade their fleet. Both vessels, MV Raasay and MV Eigg undergo their annual surveys at the boatyard which usually uncovers some remedial works, plus any improvements or modifications specified by the CalMac superintendent.
Both vessels are classed at Lloyds, and all structural repairs are carried out under the supervision of Lloyds surveyors by our experienced team of Coded welders and fabricators.
The continuity this gives ourselves and the client is mutually beneficial and with the investment planned for the site at Corpach, we have a very strong operator bidding for our work in what is a very competitive and demanding area.
