Here are the Floating Boatyard rates and prices. These are updated by us from time to time, so please check back again with every job you’d like to hire us for. We have not included material costs in the below prices. We supply materials at cost and can pass any trade discounts on to our clients. Our staff will always provide you with a written job sheet which will be signed by both us and you. The job sheet will give you the prices we are billing clearly, along with the payment terms and a copy of the British Marine Federation terms and conditions.
We accept all major credit and debit cards, as well as instant bank transfers and cash.
As a worker owned co op, we take our wider social responsibility seriously. We offer a 10% discount on the Floating Boatyard’s rates (labour only) to union members and to people on income based benefits, please let us know if you qualify for either of these discounts. If you are not sure what rate your job will come under or you would like advice on your boat project, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to discuss with you further.
