Looking forwards, looking back

The launch of our new website seemed like a good opportunity to reflect on what the future holds for Parkol Marine Engineering.

With our 50th anniversary just a stone’s throw away, we’re experiencing the most rapid phase of growth in our history.

Boat production has doubled, with four vessels undergoing construction this year alone and a significant number of pre-orders lined up. So much so that, to service demand, in 2017 we opened a second, bigger, fabrication hall in Middlesbrough.

The new hall, measuring 35 by 70 metres and boasting three, dedicated 20-tonne cranes and fully-under-cover capability gives us the additional capacity to build steel or aluminium-hulled vessels up to 50 metres long, and paves the way for us to extend our services to other types of craft.
