I have Project Managed a number of builds at C Partridge Yachts and can report that the quality of the composite work is as good as I have found. The yard’s attention to detail and the management’s understanding of hi tech composite lamination techniques and composite structures is second to none. The management and workforce take a real pride in the finishing and detailing of the boats they build and no boat is delivered until the product is 100%.
As Craig Partridge is a successful racer himself, his practical knowledge of structures and structural loads has been a bonus when decisions need to be made during a project.
C Partridge Yachts have delivered a number of successful yachts including Davidson 55, Ross 30, Davidson 35, Mills 35, Shaw 750 all built from hi tech composites. These boats are being well used and have suffered no structural problems that I am aware of.
One of the real benefits that I have found in working with CPY is Craig Partridge’s pride in his work and the quality of the boat that leaves his yard. The facility is clean and well organized.
I would not hesitate to recommend C Partridge Yachts to build any medium sized performance yacht.
