Ship Repair

Our experienced team has worked on all vessel types including land based contracts and those offshore depending on customer requirements.

We have the flexibility to tailor ship repair services in order to provide a bespoke solution for each individual project and also specialise in converting existing vessels which need to be used in new or alternative applications. 

Repair & Maintenence

With flexibility in mind, Ferguson Marine can provide ship repair and ship field servicing support at our Clydeside facility, at customer locations, in dock or offshore.

As one of the UK’s most respected repair and maintenance specialists, we complete projects for a wide range of vessels from simple dredgers to major passenger liners and can confidently undertake the most challenging assignments.

We also understand the need for vessels to be regularly maintained in order to satisfy classification and regulatory requirements. As such, we can configure bespoke maintenance plans for individual vessels that can include:

  • Weekly and annual inspections
  • In-service running checks
  • Annual testing and calibrations
  • Stockholding and replacement of critical spare parts

Our unrivalled in-house expertise and state-of-the-art facilities allow us to complete the most ambitious ship retrofit contracts from lengthening vessels and installing new accommodation units to full scale conversions.

We also have the know-how and manufacturing technology to provide the complete end-to-end ship retrofit service and can work in partnership with clients from concept formulation and design to completing and commissioning.  


Our engineers have developed a specialist understanding of the ship conversion and marine retrofit market and are able to provide professional refurbishments to extend the working lives of existing vessels.

Furthermore, our in-house design team can work with customers to re-engineer older structures into stylishly attractive, modern vessels that satisfy the most stringent environmental and regulatory requirements.
