About Us

Ralph used to operate his business under the name ‘RK Marine’ as a mobile engineer and this led to him gaining a huge amount of knowledge and experience regarding everything to do with canal boats.

In 2015 he teamed up with John’s son Tom to become the owner of P&S Marine. He continued surveying until 2017 but decided to concentrate on improving the cranage and maintenance side of the business.

With an excellent reputation for great service and a professional approach, P&S Marine has become widely known as the friendly and welcoming place to maintain your boat.

Our next chapter is just beginning, with Jack Penty replacing Tom as the new co-owner alongside Ralph. With the best team supporting, we are all looking forward to assisting the boating community for many years to come.

Commitment

We will always offer a solution. Whether the problem seems big or small, we are here to advise.

Philosophy

We will be open and honest about what you require, even if it means we turn away your work. Sometimes the cost to you outweighs the benefit.

Mission

To go above and beyond in order to complete tasks in the most efficient and cost-effective way. It is paramount that all our customers have the best experience possible.
