Jouko Lindgren Oy BOAT REPAIRS - BETTER THAN NEW
WITH DECADES OF EXPERIENCE
We started repairing glass fiber boats from the very beginning when they were introduced in Finland. Decades of work have created extensive electronic database that is being used in evaluating and planning repairs. Glass fiber lamination can only be done manually. As all of the reparation works are unique, experience in this area is highly important as to keep the works that are being done to fit the original specs of the boat. The aim of reparation process is to return the boat in the original or it’s designed strength for boat to maintain its long lifespan.

Phase 1. Contact us
After you have contacted us we will agree about the logistics of your yacht to our premises. You may also sail your yacht to our new harbor if the damage doesn’t affect your yacht’s seaworthiness or towing service can be provided if required. If your boat is already lifted and on land, we can organize the transportation through our logistics partners.
Phase 2. Damage survey
Prior to reparation works a damage survey will be made. We will inspect for visible damages of your yacht and evaluate the intensity by using technical instruments. Our digital database that consists of thousands of work files with photos will be used to help with the planning of the reparation. The damage inspector will create a work schedule and estimated budget for you and your insurance company. The damage survey is a mandatory work phase to prevent inconvenient surprises after the reparation works are done.
You may attach the damage survey and photos to the insurance documents. This will decrease the time taken for the insurance company’s decision making.

The reparation will proceed after the damage survey is completed and approved by the insurance company. You will be allowed to inspect the yacht with us after the work has been completed.
