Boat Building

We have the capacity to build barges, work platforms and service vehicles in aluminium or steel.

The vessel shown in the photos above is near completion. It has been constructed from computer cut components lifted straight from the plans, resulting in a fast and accurate build. This outboard powered catamaran has been built to service marine farms in the Marlborough sounds. It is equipped with a deck crane which is able to handle various modules onto the deck forward of the wheelhouse.

We are also able to accommodate other jobs which vary greatly from this one. Our team can modify older boats made of timber or fibreglass. We can fit new machinery or devices required for our customers.

At Picton Manufacturing we have the personnel available to marry the technologies, blending materials in with timber and composites to deliver quality with confidence.
