Project management and consultancy services

  • Are you thrilled with your plans for the structure of the boat, but would like some assistance making it come alive with the use of colour on the exterior and interior styling? We can help you with the interior layout, overall or detailed, and the selection of timber, colours, fabrics, bed linen, cutlery and so on.  We enjoy working with owners to realise their design vision.

I have no hesitation to recommend Phil Salthouse as a professional in yachting – not only as a boat builder with a lot of common sense, practical experience in all areas of a yacht – but also as a boat handler – as proven on the many regattas he has been sailing with me – some quite successful indeed – such as the 2004 Raja Muda off the Malaysian Coast.

Performing always with a smile – and pushing everybody at the right moment – he is also a good team member – a pleasant person to have around.
