Our Story


Ocean Shipyard is the ambition of Steve Edwards a veteran of British boatbuilding with over 36 years experience, from Aston Martin, to Superyachts. Steve’s intention is to offer Shipyard Services to other marine and non marine businesses and clients, in particular the capability of Ocean Shipyards well equipped Joinery and refit facilities, that has already received a great response from the market. In addition Ocean Shipyard has secured the exclusive rights to build Southerly and Bluewater yachts with full access to all the intellectual property and tooling required.


This means is that the yard itself is a stand alone business it does not rely solely on new yacht builds to survive the ebbs and flows of what can be a difficult market. Having two strings to the Ocean bow adds strength to the business, but more importantly provides job security for the highly skilled and experienced people that are the real heart and strength of the enterprise. The desire to hand build the fabulous and exclusive Southerly and Bluewater yachts is the ambition of every member of the team at Ocean Shipyard.


One of the many things that sets Ocean Shipyard apart is the collective, talented and dedicated colleagues.

We have a strong team of experienced yacht builders, joiners, shipwrights, electricians, engineers. and office workers. Between them they have many years of experience in the marine industry building Discovery, Southerly, Bluewater and other quality yachts.

The Ocean Shipyard team is brought together by the shared values of quality and workmanship. Interested in joining the team? Click here to see our current vacancies.
