You may have viewed footage from Gordon & Louise Coates on their travels to collect their brand new Fountaine Pajot Elba 45 sailing from France to Australia on a mammoth voyage.
Sailing from France to Gibraltar their video will give insight to the planning & epic destinations experienced. View video here with subsequent travels around the Mediterranean, Caribbean and the Pacific islands.
We recently welcomed them back to the land of Oz here onsite at our facility and they were kind enough to share some insight on their experience whilst here at The Boat Works;
‘Louise and I would just like to say that over the years we have been visiting The Boat Works we have watched it grow into what we feel is now one of the best boatyards and yachting facilities we have visited anywhere around the world.
We have slipped our boat for maintenance and taken advantage of the professional advice and help of the on-site trade specialists and chandlery supplies. It has everything you could possibly need right there, including café and restaurant along with a vibrant collection of boating business offices and friendly staff who go out of their way to help.
In recent times we experienced the new Super Yacht Yard, where our catamaran was lifted using the new 300 tonne Marine Travel lift, and we were very impressed!
We are sure to come back, since it is our first choice when it comes to any slipping or maintenance for our new Fountaine Pajot.’ Gordon & Louise
