Excellent boat building is tempered in the depth of yachting experience of the builder. Only after experiencing the most challenging offshore circumstances can a boat builder understand the importance of maintaining conscientious and meticulous standards, not just for enjoyment, but for the safety of ones co-workers, family and friends.
For over 30 years, Jay Phillips, leaves long and happy list of thousands of charter customers, sailing students, junior sailors, and private yacht owners. Countless yacht refits, yacht management projects, and new construction plus several years as a sail maker under North Sails and Quantum, combine a consummate understanding of how to make a boat perform safely and satisfactory for its intended purpose.
