About Us

Europa Composites is an established yacht refit and manufacturing business with their roots in Lymington, located in the heart of the New Forest. The business is now expanding to new premises located on the banks of the Lymington river, occupying over 15,000 square foot of light industrial units, for yacht refit, manufacturing, and large-scale storage. EC have skilled staff in all areas of their core business and are very much looking forward to the future with their new investment program.

The premises occupy a quarter of an acre and inside the main building is 10 tonne hoist facilities enabling large scale lifting and boat movement. Our engineering partners are in adjacent units, so end to end bespoke fabrication and metal works can be delivered seamlessly to our clients.

Client Testimonials

I put my Folkboat, Bellatrix, up for sale through Simon at Europa Composites. I made that choice because Simon is clearly knowledgeable about the boats and the fleet and well-known by the fleet. He orchestrated a sale in a short time and was clearly trusted by me as seller, and by the buyer, an ideal situation. I would happily recommend Simon to anyone else for advice on folkboats or to sell a folkboat

Ian J – Jul 2023

After finding the mast of my Folksong 25 was rotten I bought one from Europa Composites for a very reasonable price. I did not even go to check the mast was good as I was very busy work-wise. They had two masts available and they (Gemma) assured me both were good to go. Europa organised a collection date and time and the mast was collected, wrapped, from Europa Composites and delivered to me in Pembrokeshire completely hassle free (for me) No nonsense, trustworthy and reliable people’

PS – June 2023

I purchased a new mast via Europa Composites. I can’t fault their service, attention to detail and knowledge of the product. I felt they cared about my order and delivery. Would highly recommend

C – June 2023

Thank you very much for looking after and upgrading my wooden Folkboat over the winter. I’m thrilled with the quality of workmanship and really appreciated the advice you were able to give, drawing on Simon’s longstanding involvement in the class and Rob’s deep experience of wooden boats. I felt well informed at every stage and it was great to know the boat was in such safe hands.

Tom B – May 2023

I had my keel (J80) re-faired and treated. The timing and quality of work I would recommend. All on time and budget

HS – April 2023

I approached Europa Composites to prepare and paint my beloved International 14. They completed a fantastic finish and on budget. Cannot thank them enough, great service

DC – May 2022

I could not find fault with Europa Composites. I recently took my wooden Nordic Folkboat to have her hull faired and re-painted and the job was completed to an exceptionally high standard and within the agreed budget. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dan and Europa Composites to any boat owner.


TC – May 2023

Owner Nordic Folkboat 'YSA'

We were introduced to Europa Composites in 2017. The refurbishment of our Nordic Folkboat was absolutely second to none. They work within budget and agreed timelines. Europa have optimised our Nordic Folkboat to such a high standard we have now referred other European boats to Europa. They really did provide a first class service and we now use them every year to manage our boat outside of our European campaign. We believe our results our down to having the very best kit and Europa have provided that, from keel and rudder optimisation, to clothing and sails.
