Research, Design and Development

Ovington Boats are proud to offer a unique service of research, design, and development. If you have a concept or idea we will be happy to assist you with the design and development. We have the expertise and capabilities to offer the entire service in-house. From design, to prototype, to manufacture, our service can provide a finished product to an extremely high standard, and within a stipulated timescale. Our design service does not have to involve a complete boat, it could be a mast or foils you would like designed, manufactured or ‘tweaked’ in a specific way.
