History of the company

The history of the British Northshore Shipyard from Itchenor began in the 1930s. At that time the shipyard was called Gazeby Yard and was engaged in creating small wooden boats. During the war years, the shipyard worked for the defence industry and built landing crafts.

Northshore Shipyard's world fame came only in the 70s when the company launched the production of sailing yachts with Southerly lift keel. These were followed by Fisher's equally successful motorsailers and traditional Vancouver long keel boats.

In 2003 the shipyard was bought for £4.5 million by Lester Abbott, who was a director until 2011. He focused his efforts on the development of the Southerly range, and quite successfully. Shortly after his departure, however, the shipyard found itself in debt.


In 2011 difficult financial situation almost led the shipyard to bankruptcy. Today the shipyard has sold the rights to all of its brands, including Southerly, Fisher and Vancouver, and has focused on subcontracting services.


Northshore Shipyard's production facilities are located in Itchenor. There are assembly halls and an equipped quay. Also the company offers services of service, repair, storage, is engaged in sales and rent of yachts.

Model range

Until recently, Northshore Shipyard has been building Fisher custom motorcycle dealers. The shipyard is now acting as a contractor to Ring Powercraft, for which it is building RIBs, speedboats and racing boats. The shipyard is involved in the construction of Nautech Composites boats as well as individual projects.


Northshore's many years of experience in shipbuilding, hand-assembly and attention to detail allow him to build quality boats. And the full range of services makes the shipyard even more attractive. Today more than 2000 people sail around the world on yachts built by Northshore.
