Professor Pat Pending – 58ft Serial Hybrid

The customer service and communication is fabulous both during and after build and the owners group makes us feel supported and part of the family. Ortomarine made our dream come true.

Count for Nothing – 57ft Semi-trad Diesel Narrowboat

Further to visiting Rob and Caroline at their premises to the actual build and hand over, the whole experience of working with the company has been a dream.

Watt Knot

Our boat was built while we were living in Australia, & we were totally reliant on the trust relationship we developed with Rob & Caroline.

Jonathan & Karen Warren


I didn’t want a traditional boat, I wanted a modern boat – reverse layout, semi-trad and NO gas – induction cooktop, good fridge, plenty of batteries.

Chris Ruwoldt


Ortomarine’s after-sales is impressive too!

Guy & Sally Campbell


An outstanding boat finished to a very high standard

Andy & Liz Ford

Master Riley

Caroline, Rob, Dave, Patty and the team are highly recommended. Their skills equal quality boats and very happy customers.

Derek & Jackie Hacker

Stray Not Far

Ortomarine is that scarcest of commercial rarities, a company which does not overclaim; whether on their website or in person, everything they say they will do, they do, and they do it well.

Steve & Christine Grover

Capercaillie Cruisers

Ortomarine’s boats have been received with great acclaim by customers and gongoozlers alike. Attention to detail, good communication between end customer and shell builder, and not afraid to make innovative changes and suggestions to improve things mark this company out.
