Stella Maris Yachting has acquired the business of Hamilton Marine International, a Southampton engineering company which specialises in sail and motor yacht marine engineering, repairing and rebuilding the engines of large and classic yachts. Hamilton Marine had previously worked in partnership on a number of projects including the rebuild of the J Class yacht Ranger’s engine in the summer of 2015 while she was in the Solent. The company has also engineered superyachts including the 57.5m sailing yacht Twizzle.
“Bringing Hamilton Marine on board further underpins our growth and complements our skill set to provide the highest quality complete service to the yachts at our bases in Southampton and the Mediterranean,” comments Stella Maris Yachting’s Director of Operations Craig Murray-Gilmour.
Hamilton Marine was led by Jonathan Craig, who will now head up Stella Maris Yachting’s engineering division.
“By bringing Hamilton Marine’s skills on board we have complemented our capability of delivering larger and more complex projects, either remotely or on site in our Southampton and Spanish facilities.”
